The weekend starts on Thursday, right?
‘Cuz check this out–
Thursday, November 6th at 7pm
How’s THAT for a classy after work treat?
Doors open at 7pm. Performance at 8.
Sure, you could stay at home, pour yourself a glug of Trader Joe’s finest and listen to jazz on iHeartRadio, but you could ALSO be awesome for a change.
Put on some pants, and go hear some live music. Fireside at the Ritz.
Friday, November 7th thru Sunday, November 16th
It’s back! The annual week long affair made up of a hundred different events all around town.
Photography exhibits, competitions, short films, lectures, etc.
The kickoff party is Friday at 7pm at the Spanish Ambassadors’ Former Residence on 16th St NW. This site will host the opening party, and also act as the main hub for a lot FotoWeek’s special functions.
You can’t beat the $5 donation for entry to the galleries and exhibits. Please note: tickets for the opening night parties cost a bit more. Check out Eventbrite for details.
For all of you people who say photography isn’t art because all you’re doing is pushing a button (yes, I’ve heard this blasphemy!) maybe drop in on one of the exhibits, learn a thing or two, then shut your pie hole.
I kid. I kid.
Saturday, November 8th 12pm to 4pm
Nope, October did not mark the end of the beer festival.
(Although, mercifully, the end of the lederhosen)
If you missed out, head on down to Nationals Park this Saturday, with $40 in your pocket.
Hey, they can’t all be free, but the fee is well worth it for unlimited pours of craft beer, seasonal ales, live music, and plenty of games enjoyed on the grounds of DC’s beautiful baseball stadium.
Plus, there will be tons of food trucks onsite to help you soak up all that hoppy goodness.
Other boozy events this weekend include:
Rock the Core, as in apple core ‘cuz this one is all about the hard cider (as well as beer!) $40 for this fest, too.
There are 3 drankin’ sessions, and I have to say the games alone look pretty interesting. I’m curious about this “Giant Jenga”…
Of course, there will be beer pong and food trucks, too.
Free to get in. $20 to imbibe. Pig roast, moon bounce. Check it out, VA!
That should take you through most of the weekend, but let me give you one more free event so you can’t say I don’t love you…
Hmmm, lemme see…
What’s happening on Veterans Day this coming Tuesday?
Rihanna! (Is it Rihanna or Rhianna? whatever!)
Ya know, if you happen to be into cool, free shiz.
If not, no biggie.
Just stay at home on your day off.
And watch HGTV.
See you around town!
