Jazz in the Garden kicks off Friday for the season. Have other ideas for the summer? Share them Thursday at 1 p.m. and you might get DC Jazz Festival tickets.

Wondering what the scene will be like at Friday’s Jazz in the Garden kickoff? Want to hit a pool when they (finally!) open on Saturday, or find a Memorial Day concert on Sunday? Join us live Thursday at 1 p.m. for the Got Plans? chat and get all your pressing summertime questions answered.

Or just join us for a chance to score tickets to the upcoming DC Jazz Festival, one of the must-dos on our guide to the coolest summer ever.

We’ve got two pairs of tickets to give away: One pair to see Diane Reeves at the Howard Theatre on June 3, and another set to see Jamaican pianist Monty Alexander at the Hamilton on June 9.
All you have to do is tell us during the chat: What are your favorite ways to soak up the hot Washington summer?

We’ll choose two of the most creative answers to score the tickets, and we could also highlight your responses in an upcoming post.
