With the growth of the CHS Calendar, we’re transitioning On the List from a (trying to be!) comprehensive rundown of the weekend’s happenings to more of a highlighting of the biggest, most interesting events. It makes more sense for the vibrant, community-updated CHS Calendar to take a bigger role in keeping CHS readers informed about what is going on.
And definitely let us know about your Capitol Hill-related event — or something you hear about that others need to know about — by adding it. Have a great weekend!
