You can attend a beer pairing dinner with one of the area’s newest breweries, celebrate the season with Belgian-style saisons at a primary social spot, or play bocce and drink cold brews for a good cause in Georgetown. And if you’re in the mood to bake somethingsweet, you can take a fun banana bread baking class at a swanky hotel that’s a Washington institution; not bad for the first week in March.

Art & Soul to Host Beer Pairing Dinner Featuring Local Virginia Brewer Ocelot Brewing Company

This Friday, March 11, from 7:00 to 9:30 p.m., you can eat and drink local and down home-style with Southern food from Art & Soul and tasty brews by Ocelot Brewing Company (based out in Dulles) for $64.29 per person. For these folks, craft beer is a passion, an obsession and a journey, and they approach beer dinners the same way. The range of foaming fun includes hop monsters to slightly sweet malted versions, and even sours—all paired with tasty food. The evening will begin with charcuterie and oysters and a glass of Crimson Tears followed by four brews paired with four courses prepared by Art & Soul executive chef Douglas Alexander. Reserve now because these dinners sell out.

Banana Bread Baking Class at The Mayflower Hotel

Banana bread, whether it’s in muffin form or sliced from a loaf is one of those tasty baked goods people love, even those who find fault with the texture of the banana. Getting the crumb and moisture just right isn’t easy but this delicious quick bread is a signature item at The Mayflower Hotel and they feature it as a turndown amenity and as a dessert at weddings. It’s been a scrumptious staple at the hotel since 1963, and in the chef's kitchen at Edgar Bar and Kitchen, more than 20,000 bananas are baked into more than 10,000 banana bread loaves. If you want to learn the secret recipe to this fun bread, the hotel is hosting a banana bread baking class on Saturday, March 19 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. for $35 per person. To slake your thirst, Port City Brewery will be on hand pouring complementary beer that tastes delightful with the bread and then at the end of class take home the recipe and a lovely branded apron. Sign up now by email or by calling (202) 347-2233.

Black Lives Matter and America’s long history of resisting civil rights protesters

One year ago this week, protests erupted in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray in police custody. After yet another high-profile death of an unarmed black man connected to police, there were riots, peaceful demonstrations and proclamations from activists that black lives matter.

The decentralized Black Lives Matter movement burst onto the national scene following the 2014 police shooting of an unarmed black teenager, Michael Brown, in Ferguson, Mo. Since then, activists have protested police brutality by stopping Black Friday sales, shutting down rail stations and becoming a fixture on the presidential campaign trail. They have disrupted Bernie Sanders, confronted Hillary Clinton and protested Donald Trump, leading to tense confrontations and violent reactions.

For these demonstrations, Black Lives Matter activists have received plenty of criticism from political candidates and their supporters and surrogates.

The majority of Americans haven't embraced the activists’ message or strategies, either fewer than a third of Americans said Black Lives Matter focuses on real issues of racial discrimination while 55 percent said the movement distracts from those issues, according to a September PBS News Hour/Marist poll. Another poll conducted that month by NBC News and Wall Street Journal found that 32 percent of Americans had mostly positive views of the movement 29 percent had mostly negative views and 39 percent were neutral.

Such tepid acceptance of black activism isn't surprising. This country has a history of disapproving of civil rights protests and demonstrations. And perhaps nothing better demonstrates that dynamic than the movement of the 1960s.

Today, sit-ins, freedom rides and marches for voting rights are viewed with historical reverence. Schoolchildren across the country memorize Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech. Conservatives invoke the moral authority of the civil rights movement as a model for their own activism. Civil rights workers are viewed as national heroes.
