FBWEV and All That Jazz

John EatonJazz pianist extraordinaire, John Eaton, charmed and entertained over 100 delighted Village members and their guests on Tuesday evening, March 24th.

Mr. Eaton delivered renditions at a Steinway piano of cherished American songs by composers such as Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern. The second level of the Foggy Bottom West End Village campus was turned into a jazz club for the event.

After a short social hour, all attendees settled down to a musical tour down memory lane and marveled at Mr. Eaton’s talent and ability to compose jazz combinations on the spot from suggestions taken from a very enthusiastic audience.

FBWEV Hits The Lanes

bowlingOn March 14th FBWEV held its 2nd Annual Village Bowling Extravaganza at the upscale “Pinstripes” in Washington, DC. Let the competition begin!!!

More than 25 Villagers revisited their teenage years and became competitive as they relearned how to bowl and score the game. They had no trouble, however, having a good time by cheering on all who participated. The venue served designer pizza, soft drinks and cocktails which only helped enrich the atmosphere and all to say “this is not your Mother’s bowling alley anymore.”
