About the Cady Lee House

Cady Lee HouseThe Beerfest takes place at the historic and lovingly restored Cady Lee House in Takoma DC.

The Forum for Youth Investment routinely maintains the property by paying for pre-emptive projects to improve the facility and performing all necessary repairs that an historic mansion requires. (Donations to the Cady-Lee are dedicated to these repairs and improvements.)

The 2010-2011 Renovation of the Cady-Lee

In addition to the full restoration of the Cady-Lee in 2001, the Forum invested in a noteworthy renovation project in 2011. The non-profit hired the general contractor, Thomas Archer LLC, to implement the renovation project. Listed below and as shown in the pictures, are the highlights of this impressive major renovation:

  • Fixed the roof and renovated the gutters and third floor sleeping porch
  • Repaired rotted timbers, posts, and beams to improve the structural integrity of the house and safety
  • Renovated and replaced posts and railings on all decks for safety and structural reasons
  • Repaired siding and all window frames
  • Prepared and painted the entire house, ensuring protection from water damage

DC Bike Party’s 3rd Anniversary Ride and After Party
Jul 10 @ 9:30 PM – Jul 11 @ 1:00 AM

bik partyJoin us on FRIDAY JULY 10th as we celebrate the 3rd anniversary of DC Bike Party. This is a SPECIAL FRIDAY EDITION OF DC BIKE PARTY… For the ride, we’ll meet in the center of Dupont Circle at 7:30 before we hit the street at 8pm sharp. We’ll ride together for about an hour and a half, with a pit-stop dance party in between, before we arrive at our destination: The After Party.

Our good friends at City Bikes are letting us break in their new HUGE warehouse space at 632 W St. NE for our anniversary celebration. We’ll have a full bar, ice cream and tacos from Milk Cult, a dance performance by Urban Artistry, bike portraits, a giant collaborative mural wall, and a live performance by The Originators. We’re adding programming every day, so keep your eyes on DC Bike Party’s Facebook page for added details. The party will run from 9:30pm-1am and is 18 and over– 21 to drink.

The theme for this month is simple– it’s a birthday party! Adorn both yourself and your bike with a few party hats, some streamers, kazoos, and balloons. Bonus points to whoever brings cupcakes or can get a pinata on their bike.
