Buckeye Game Day 2020 Update

In June 2020, OSUDC voted to not host in-person Game Day events this year.

While OSUDC is not hosting official game watch parties this season, all of our OSUDC Partner Bars will be featuring the Buckeyes games all season starting October 24 with sound on. If you are in the neighborhood, please consider supporting these local businesses by ordering carry-out or delivery. Don’t miss the great special offers for Buckeye fans! You can find detailed information on all six of our partner bars throughout the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area on our Buckeye Game Day page.

Should Ohio State fans choose to attend one of our bars in person to watch Buckeye football, please note the COVID protocols in place at our respective bars, listed on our Buckeye Game Day page.

Ohio State University PhD recipient, Dr. Pamela Nadell, will be speaking about her book, America’s Jewish Women: a history from colonial times to today on Monday, December 7 at 2:00 p.m. The Montgomery County Public Library will be hosting this free presentation on Zoom.

Dr. Pamela Nadell will present a lecture based on her book “America’s Jewish Women: A History from Colonial Times to Today”

In this groundbreaking history, Pamela Nadell asks what does it mean to be a Jewish woman in America? Weaving together stories from the colonial era’s matriarch, Grace Nathan, and her great-granddaughter poet, Emma Lazarus, to union organizer, Bessie Hillman and the great justice, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Nadell shows two threads binding the nation’s Jewish women: a strong sense of self and a resolute commitment to making the world a better place. Informed by the shared values of America’s founding and Jewish identity, America’s Jewish women – the well-known and the scores of activists, workers, wives and mothers whose names linger on among their communities and families – left deep footprints in the history of the nation they call home.
