Two weekly events start today in Rosslyn — part of a very musical summer in the otherwise business-oriented neighborhood.
From 11:45 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., local R&B and jazz act Spur of the Moment will kick off the CentralPlace Wednesday lunchtime concert series. The concerts are being held at “CentralSpace,” the temporary park at the corner of North Moore Street and Wilson Boulevard (CentralSpace will eventually be the site of a new office tower).
Tonight from 5:30 to 8:00, there will be live music, dancing and after-work drinks at Rosslyn Plaza, in front of the Rosslyn Spectrum Theater. The Party at the Plaza will take place every Wednesday in June and July. Tonight and for the rest of the month the event will feature salsa dancing. In July it switches to swing dancing. Free dance lessons will be held from 5:30 to 6:00, with the rest of the time reserved for people to dance as they see fit.
Tomorrow food gets thrown into the musical mix. BG & The Mojo Hands will play from 11:45 to 1:30 at the Rosslyn Farmer’s Market. The Thursday lunchtime concert series — which actually started last month and will stretch through October — is held next to the market, across from the Cupid’s Garden Sculpture at Wilson Boulevard and North Oak Street. The Rosslyn Farmer’s Market itself takes place from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and features fruits, veggies, herbs, pastries, breads, fruit preserves and more.
