Some events are open to just residents of a specific community, some are open to residents and Friends of OSG, and others are open to anyone in the Northern VA area.

Regular Programming

Every first Wednesday night of the month, the Queens Court community and Our Stomping Ground are gathering together and heading to the restaurant of the group’s choosing. For October we’ll head to Saigon Noodles and Grill.

This is the perfect opportunity to meet new friends, connect with old ones, try local Rosslyn restaurants and indulge your inner-foodie!

Saigon Noodles and Grill (1800 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA 22201)

We’re firm believers that community extends beyond the people in our lives – it also encompasses the world we live in and our individual impact on the environment. To that end, please join us as we work together to clean up Roosevelt Island- one of D.C.’s jewels. This is a great opportunity to learn about this historical landmark, create new friendships, and protect our community.

Details for attending:
We will meet in front of the bridge before heading over to the island. Trash bags, gloves, and garbage pickers will be provided by the amazing park ranger. It is required at the park for everyone to wear a mask. Remember to dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.

A note about the weather:
If it’s rained recently and the park is muddy or it’s muddy the day of, we’ll try to send an email but assume Roosevelt Island is canceled. Instead we’ll meet and walk at Queens Court.

This week for our Social Justice Club we’re reading and discussing the book Minor Feelings: An Asian American Reckoning by Cathy Park Hong. “Poet and essayist Cathy Park Hong fearlessly and provocatively blends memoir, cultural criticism, and history to expose fresh truths about racialized consciousness in America. Part memoir and part cultural criticism, this collection is vulnerable, humorous, and provocative—and its relentless and riveting pursuit of vital questions around family and friendship, art and politics, identity and individuality, will change the way you think about our world. With sly humor and a poet’s searching mind, Hong uses her own story as a portal into a deeper examination of racial consciousness in America today. This intimate and devastating book traces her relationship to the English language, to shame and depression, to poetry and female friendship. A radically honest work of art, Minor Feelings forms a portrait of one Asian American psyche—and of a writer’s search to both uncover and speak the truth.” In all the following Social Justice Club meetings we’ll continue the book until the end. You’re welcome to purchase the book yourself but it is not required since the host will read out loud in the group. If you’d like to join, just register once to receive the Zoom link, and we’ll send it automatically thereafter.
