Hello this event has been postponed due to the extreme heat forecast for tomorrow. Please check back for new date/times in the future!
Bannockburn Pool is famous for its gourmet food offerings and summer concerts. Most of these small, family-owned businesses are still recovering from huge financial losses during Covid. Please consider ordering from them on their visits, rather than bringing your own, to make it worth their while.
Saturday (July 29) Sang on Wheels 1:00pm – 7:00pm
Sang on Wheels will be at the Bannockburn Pool parking lot this Wednesday for dinner. Everyone from the neighborhood is most welcome to participate and we have plenty of onsite picnic tables if you’d like to enjoy your food under the shade trees. Come out and support this hard-working female immigrant chef who hails from Laos. Her best sellers are Veggie Tofu Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, and Fried Rice dishes. (Made vegan or with protein). See her website here. All items will be available via walk up ordering.
Here’s a bit more background on this food truck: Sang Alavi moved here from Laos in 1988 with $20. She knew two words in English: hello and goodbye. She worked as a nanny, a prep cook, a shampoo girl, a cashier and a cocktail waitress before deciding to go to beauty school. After owning a salon for seven years, she came up with the idea of a mobile hair salon. When the D.C. government rejected that idea, Alavi didn’t give up. She started a food truck instead. “On my first day, hundreds of people lined up at 13th and K for my drunken noodles. That day, I was so proud of myself,” Alavi says.
Live Music in the Lot – July 29, 2023 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm
The Locals, a beloved Bannockburn band will be performing a free concert in the parking lot later this month. Local musicians Amr Khani, Todd McIntyre, David Goldberger, Gianne Mcneil and Aaron Zitner, will play an eclectic mix from the Grateful Dead to 90’s favorites.
We will be closing half our parking lot so people can bring lawn chairs and kids can run around and play. Everyone from the community is most welcome! Please park in the nearby residential streets if you’re driving. (If handicap, please send email to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make special arrangements for you).
