Friday I'm in Love: Yards Park Friday Night Concert Series

So we've been to the Yards Park for its hit splashground before, but a few weeks ago we went for our first time to the Park's FREE Friday Night Concert Series (which is currently scheduled to run until August 19th, although mom kind of swears that she heard the announcer say it was going to be extended to September). AWESOME.  It was a beautiful night along the river, the music was rockin, Kane and I were boogeyin down, mom and dad were lovin the beer garden, and we got din and dessert from some foodtrucks/stands that posted up at the Concert, including Fry Captain (um, duck fat fries and sriracha mayo? yes and yes) and Orange Cow (basic, but delish chocolate ice cream).  The Park was full of kids and families and its nice to see SE lookin up.

Also keep in mind that once a month, June through October, Truckeroo is held just next door (at Half and M Street, next to the Navy Yard metro), which showcases foodtrucks from the D.C. area and also has live music -- the next one is scheduled for August 12th.  So if you don't like the trucks that sidle up to the Park itself, you can always stop by Truckeroo for some din.  And the Nats stadium is also a hop, skip, and a jump away, so if you have tix to one of the Friday night games left, you can always hit up the Yards first (concerts are scheduled to run from 6 to 8 p.m.)

We are basically all booked up every Friday night to August 19th, so we are REALLY hoping mom didn't just have one too many Stellas and that they are actually going to extend the concert series.
