It is the weekend before the 4th of July so my guess is that lots of you are splitting town (lucky) and I truly hope you are blessed with no traffic, no rain and all the ice cream. The rest of us will be here just not-chilling.
Tonight swing by the soon-to-open Audi Field and get a sneak peek at DC United’s new home. The stadium is open from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and representatives from the team will be on hand from 5:30-7:30 p.m. to share information on the team and their new digs. Enjoy happy hour specials and snacks and enter a raffle to win prizes.
Capitol Hill Restoration Society presents Mapping Early Washington, a community forum at 7 p.m. at the Hill Center. Brian D. Kraft, DC history expert and director of the Visualizing DC History project, has mapped the 1822 City Directory. He will present the resulting story map this evening. If you go you might find out who lived in your house! Mine was not built yet but it still sounds like a fun night for all of the many nerds who roam these streets/blogs.
Local historian Garret Peck will discuss Prohibition at Atlas Brew works. The $35 ticket includes a tour, a glass and a tasting flight in addition to learning how World War 1 made Prohibition possible.
Friday night dance the stress of this crazy week away to some trap music and Buddhists chants. That actually sounds amazing. AMORFA dance party at CONGRUENT (arts space created by No Kings Collective) at 1402 H Street NE. From 7pm to 11pm get your zen groove on. The event is free and you can register here.
Saturday is Rosé all Day at Yards Park. Everything will be pink and on your Instagram feed. And while I didn’t think we were still doing this, apparently there will be flower crowns.
Millenials, Why can’t we just enjoy a thing without it becoming such a…THING.
No judgment! All Love.
Your tired and frequently-confused Gen X friend.
The all women Afro-Brazilian percussion band Batalá performs at Lincoln Park at 6 p.m. These women are awesome and I highly recommend you check them out before your evening gets going.
Momentum Dance Theatre presents their annual adult showcase of Momentum and Friends. Momentum is located on 8th Street SE but show will be at the Dance Loft on 14th Street NW. Forgive me for sending you so far but the $20 ticket price does include wine.
Sunday, if the heat is as brutal as they are predicting, head indoors to the Hill Center and take in their Regional Juried Exhibition, featuring over 100 artists from DC, Virginia and Maryland. They say art heals the soul and we all could use a boost right about now.
See you Wednesday at the Barracks Row Parade!
