The third annual Arlington Small Business Day (ASBD) will be Saturday, November 29, 2014. Nearly 150 small businesses in Arlington will participate in the day-long event by hosting sales, events or promotions in their place of business. This year’s event will also be powered by the mobile application YOPP which was inspired by Arlington Small Business Day. YOPP’s goal is to make Arlington Small Business Day every day. Small businesses participating in the event will post the sale, event or promotion they are holding for Arlington Small Business Day on YOPP so shoppers can more easily find participating businesses on their mobile devices and take advantage of the amazing promotions these businesses offer once a year. Shoppers that are looking for something specific this holiday season can also post what they are looking for on YOPP and other shoppers as well as small businesses on the app can help them find it.

YOPP will also be hosting Santa for Arlington Small Business Day on Nov. 29th. Details of where Santa will be on Arlington Small Business Day and how you can get an invitation for your child to see Santa will be released on the Arlington Small Business Day website which is www.arlingtonsmallbusinessday.org and the YOPP website which is www.yoppapp.com as well as their social media pages in early November. A special event called Shop Local with Hot Cocoa is also planned to showcase local home-based and online businesses.

Bus Tour – Arlington County – Sunday November 23, 2014

In the spirit of the DC Historical Studies conference theme, “historical consciousness in a changing city,” the tour of Arlington County will explore the historical layers of this important segment of the Washington metropolitan area. Originally part of the 100 square mile federal district, later occupied – and strategic — territory during the Civil War and, afterwards, site of contestations over how to remember that war, transformed in the twentieth century by military expansion and immigration, Arlingtonians continue today to debate development in a rapidly transforming urban and suburban landscape.
Sites featured include: Air Force Memorial, the Nauck neighborhood, the West Boundary Stone, Ball-Sellers House, Hume School (Arlington Historical Society), Arlington House within Arlington National Cemetery.
Limit: 40 persons
Cost: $40/person, advance registration

Also on the program: Faure, Britten, IBIS’s original arrangement of Saint Saens Danse Macabre for voice and ensemble, and an introspective string quartet by film composer Bernard Hermann, of Psycho fame.
