Saturday Memorial Concert for Adam Hosinski and Rory Weichbrod

On October 9th, 2010, Adam Hosinski and Rory Weichbrod, were crossing Rockville Pike in North Bethesda, when they were struck and killed by a driver who was later arrested on DUI charges and convicted of manslaughter.

This Saturday, from 2-7pm, friends and family will gather at The Bullpen, across from Nationals Stadium, to celebrate the lives of these two men, with a memorial concert and fundraiser for two charities (The Special Olympics and Operation Once in a Lifetime) the two were closely involved with. The event was conceived and planned by several of Adam and Rory’s closest friends, specifically the band members of Midnight Spin, close childhood friends and classmates of Hosinski and Weichbrod. According to the victims’ close friend, Kevin Boyle, “The concert is a memorial, a charity fund raiser, and most of all a celebration of the lives of two of the best guys I was lucky enough to have as a part of my life.”

The weather for tomorrow will provide the perfect day to head over to The Bullpen for tons of fun, live music, cornhole, a fast pitch baseball machine, food and drink, but most importantly to remember two DCers taken far too soon.

The event will not require a cover charge.

The next time you get off the Metro at Navy Yard heading toward Nats Park, you’ll be greeted by the exterior of a new outdoor beer garden called Das Bullpen (h/t to Nationals Buzz blogger Kristen Hudak).

Das Bullpen opened Tuesday and is described as the “laid-back alternative” to its partner beer garden, The Bullpen, which further down (by a few yards or so) on Half Street.

Bratwurst, Polish sausage, knockwurst, hot dogs and an extensive European draught beer selection will be available to patrons.

Das Bullpen will open two hours before the day’s first pitch and stay open until midnight.
