I’ve been waiting all month for the calendar to near October 1, the self-imposed date that determines I’m allowed to eat as much candy corn as I want. Halloween is just around the corner, people! But what to do in the meantime besides raid the Halloween candy display at Harris Teeter? Read on.

Voting begins for the Hilly awards on Saturday; winners will be announced at a ceremony on November 13. Categories include restaurant and retailer of the year among many others. You can check out a complete list of the categories and nominations here.

We all know there’s no shortage of pet lovers on the Hill.  In keeping with the nearly 800 year old tradition in honor of St. Francis of Assisi, the Patron Saint of Animals, Congressional Cemetery is holding the Blessing of the Animals on Saturday. You can bring your leashed four legged friend to the chapel at 2pm to receive a blessing from Rev. Cara Spaccarelli, Rector of Christ Church Washington Parish.

Feeling theatrical? H Street Playhouse is joining forces with the Rorschach Theatre, now in residence at Atlas, to host a 2011/2012 Season Kick-Off Event. So stop by the Red Palace on Monday from 7-9pm for a drink and to see excerpts of the work coming to H Street this year.

The weather is supposed to be gorgeous and fall-like this weekend! Why not take advantage of one of Cultural Tourism DC’s WalkingTownDC/BikingTownDC outings? There’s a few different options around the Hill.
