Bon Voyage: We’re riding to the theater!

Leslie Swan Photography LLC


Moulin Rouge, the Metro, the Catacombs, and the Grand Universal Exposition of 1889!

Happenstance Theater‘s new show, BON VOYAGE! A Happenstance Escapade, is a timely celebration of Liberty, Equity, and Camaraderie.

On July 27, we’re taking the scenic, two-wheeled route to catch the show!

We’ll meet at Malmaison which is near the entrance to the Capital Crescent Trail in Georgetown, ride the 8 miles (about 45 minutes) up to Bethesda, watch the show, grab ice cream at Dolcezza after the show, and enjoy a cool ride in the dark all the way back to Georgetown together! Riding that trail at night in a group is an experience you don’t want to miss. If you’d rather not ride the trail at night, you can take the metro. The red line is just a few blocks from the theatre.

WHEN: Thursday, July 27, 2017, 6-11 pm (Ride departs at 6:15)
WHERE: Ride leaves from right in front of Malmaison, 3401 Water St NW, Washington, DC 20007
SHOWTIME: 7:30 pm at Round House Theatre, 4545 East-West Hwy
Bethesda, MD. Click here and reserve your tickets to the show!
AFTER: Socialize over gelato at Dolcezza & enjoy a night ride on the trail back into DC. (BRING LIGHTS!)
WHAT TO WEAR: Casual and cool. Retro to Modern! Think of it as another chance to sport your vintage threads on two wheels. The trail at night can be cool, so bring another light layer, just in case.
