Labor Day weekend is here and while the heat will likely be around well into October, this is the culturally agreed-upon end-of-summer. Do not misinterpret this as permission to pumpkin spice up your life just yet, but maybe it’s time to start staying in the office Friday afternoons.
How will you say goodbye to Summer 2019?
Tonight help with Congressional Cemetery’s fall Honey Harvest! Your participation fee includes instructions on how to harvest the sweet stuff and you even get to take home a jar for your efforts. The fun begins at 6:30 and you must register in advance. Update: The Honey Harvest is SOLD OUT! You can buy Rest in Bees honey starting Tuesday, September 3. More details forthcoming!
You can also say farewell to summer at Trusty’s tonight from 8-9:30 p.m., with Boom Town Wreck. More info over at the Set List.
And since you’re in the neighborhood, stop by Wisdom between 7-9 p.m. and get a tarot reading from our very own Maria. $10 for a short reading, $20 for a longer one.
Friday is the final concert at Yards Park of the season. Trailer Grass Orchestra closes out the summer with bluegrass sounds. Their unique twist is to bluegrassify classic tunes from the 80s/90s/00s. I can’t make it but can someone let me know if they give Oops I did it Again that high lonesome sound? The concert begins at 7 p.m. and ends at 9 p.m.
If you consider yourself a Parrothead, go meet your people at a pre-game party at Nats Park. The Nats take on Miami so that Jimmy Buffet vibe should last throughout that game. Your ticket gets you a t-shirt and concession discount.
Saturday keep the good time going with rooftop brunch at Ivy City Winery. From 11a.m. to 4 p.m. you can enjoy the full brunch menu while enjoying music by D.J. Miss H.E.R.
Sunday the farmer’s market at Capitol Riverfront will take place from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. and will feature the DC Board of Elections, which will have volunteers on site registering voters. Howard Blu Herrnstadt will be at market performing live jazz music.
