Fuel Pilates opening Saturday

Now, this is out of my normal coverage zone, but since the owner, Kelly Griffith, has taught throughout the U street/Logan Circle area, I want to write about the opening of Fuel Pilates at Wisconsin and M in Georgetown (right above Lacoste). Kelly has taught at Flow, B Fit, and the now closed Inspired Yoga. If you’ve ever been to a class with her, you know that she’ll work you hard but yet cheer you on. She’s a great teacher.

Fuel Pilates’ official opening is this Saturday – along with free classes all weekend, there is an opening party at 6 pm Saturday – drinks and refreshments will be provided (as well as a DJ) to celebrate their grand opening. Check it out!

Via DCist, who also has more information on the homicide in Columbia Heights yesterday, I learned of a Festivus celebration in Adams Morgan today.

I gotta say, after losing my job yesterday, I’m not really feeling the holiday spirit. Not only can I not afford to buy anyone presents, but after spending some time in Georgetown yesterday with obnoxious college kids and ridiculously rich old people wandering around spending like there was no tomorrow, I wasn’t exactly feeling good about anyone spending a ton of money with the state of the world right now.

Hence, the draw of Festivus. With the airing of grievances (man, I have a lot of grievances to air!), the feats of strength, a stoic display of brawn, and the undecorated, minimalist aluminum pole I’m certainly getting into the Festivus spirit. Consider me a convert.
