Last night, I was taking stock of what’s happening locally this weekend, so I thought I’d share my findings. Feel free to add your own in the comments below! See you Monday!

ALL WEEKEND

  • SilverDocs The eighth annual SilverDocs festival, celebrating documentary films, is being held June 21-27, 2010 at the AFI Silver Theatre & Cultural Center and other locations in and around Silver Spring. For serious movie buffs, there are a range of packages available that offer you access to multiple events. For less commitment and less money, you can buy day-of tickets for a single show for $10. There are WAY too many film events happening for me to name, so just check out this link instead. $10 per film or purchase package deals

World Cup: With Halftime Auction This Friday

Posted in events tagged , , , , , , , at 1:29 pm by silversprung

This just in from a reader:

For all you soccer buffs, the Catholic University Men’s Soccer program is hosting a viewing party in The Sprung on Friday at McGinty’s (remember sprungers? The bar Silver Spring Singular deemed the place to watch World Cup in Silver Spring?) Doors open at 9:30am.

An auction will be held at halftime to benefit the Cardinals’ eight day training tour in England this fall. Auction items include gift certificates and sports memorabilia, our reader passes along.

World Cup: Where to Go in The Spring

Posted in blogs, events, silver spring businesses tagged , , , , , at 3:03 pm by silversprung

I’m sure there must be hundreds of local lists detailing “Where to Watch the World Cup,” but Silver Spring Singular was kind enough to identify what will obviously be the best Silver Spring place to take in the action: McGinty’s.

On a side note, if you’re in the District, I know of some friends who are taking part in the public viewing that’s being set up in Dupont Circle.
