I don’t know about you, but now that we basically cannot hide from work, it’s easy to fall through a rabbit hole of things you have to do and never come up for air. This is why you need to get up off your desk or couch or adorable WFH setup, stretch, get hydrated, and come right back so you can do something fun. Okay, maybe let’s kick the list off with something socially distanced you can do so you can wear your fanciest sweatpants outside. Let’s go!
First up, YOU NEED HONEY. Listen, 2020 has been hard enough on us, so considering that Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, is coming, why not embrace the spirit and sweeten our lives with some local honey? Our friend Del Voss and his friend Jan Day will be selling honey this Saturday, September 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 11th and C Streets NE. Follow Del on Instagram for many mouthwatering jar-filling shots.

Let’s just keep on treating ourselves. What about having a proper fried chicken sandwich this weekend? Anela Malik has a list of great fried chicken sandwiches from around the area, as well as a little bit of history about the ubiquitous bite.
