Looking for something to do? Here's the scoop on several events coming up in the next few weeks and beyond:


University Row at the Virginia Gold Cup Races. As seen in DC Style magazine, University Row is back for a ninth straight year. Sales began a few days ago and the entire Row is more than 2/3 sold already. Last year's gathering featured a record involvement of 55 alumni groups and sold out more than two weeks before Gold Cup. This year 66 alumni groups are participating, including two new Anchors: Fordham and Villanova. All-inclusive tickets feature open bar, catered fare, and round trip bus transportation from Ballston. Organized by the Alumni Events Alliance, tickets provide full access to all 11 Row tents. See the Website at for news, reviews, photos, videos, history, roster, and more. Run completely by volunteers, no staff or promoter is paid from ticket revenue; all proceeds benefit the non-profit missions of participating AEA member organizations.
