Dave L.: Since I have no crazy, 22-hour trips to Boston planned and my alma mater is on its bye week, I’m going to take advantage of plenty of things around the city before ducking out of dodge for vacation. Friday evening seems like a great time to go find a patio bar since the weather is looking exceptional. Maybe somewhere on the Hill? Saturday stands to be a little more planned, at least as much as chaos can be organized, with an End of Skeeson party on tap for another successful season of United Skeeball down at Rosslyn’s Continental. Team name for everyone who loves puns: Snakes on A Lane 3 – the Skeelogy.

Michael: Big music weekend in DC! Thursday night, I’ll be mixing it up from the DJ booth in the Industrial/Electronica room at REVOLUTION at FUR. Friday night, I’ll finally be seeing No Age in concert along with their impressive openers Holy Fuck. This is an awesome double bill! Then the DC Sonic Circuits Festival kicks off on Saturday night with an ultra-rare performance by Magma. On Sunday the experimental music fest continues down in Fairfax, where I’ll be trying to survive 12-straight hours of improv noise-jams. Wish me luck!

Rachel: Big weekend ahead. Friday night I’ll be catching dinner at drinks with some friends at Clyde’s in Friendship Heights. If I get the time on Saturday then I’ll be making an appearance at the H Street Festival at some point during the day. The true highlight of the weekend will be meeting up with Carl Weaver in-person from the comfort of my Virginia debut at FireFlies in Alexandria. I’ll be on stage from 9-11 p.m. and there’s no cover charge. So if you’re in/around the Braddock Road Yellow/Blue Line Metro Station during those hours, feel free to stop in and catch a few songs.Then Sunday will be spent keeping it classy with some friends while experiencing Opera in the Outfield at Nationals Park.

Tiff: Saturday is all about festivals. The Cider Festival at my CSA farm coincides with the Bluemont Fair. Then when I get back to town? H Street Festival: It. Is. On. Haven’t decided whether I’ll continue the madness on Sunday, but the Maryland Renaissance Festival is a definite possibility, as is the Greek Festival Ashley is torturing me with this morning .

Rebecca: Ever since the trailer for “The Town” came out, I’ve been dying to see it, so that’s what I’ll be doing Friday evening. After the showing, I’ll grab some eats at Paulo’s and head home to rest for my early Saturday morning footie match. Post soccer playing, I’ll be settling down to watch College Football. Instead of last week’s hoagies, this week’s menu will be soup and grilled cheeeeeeeeeese. Sunday I’ll be checking out the brunch offerings and backyard cabana at Puro Cafe, and will then head to tourEastern Market and see what’s new.

Tom: This Saturday, I’m taking a short day trip up to Pittsburgh to talk about We Love DC at Pittsburgh Podcamp, which means I’m unfortunately going to miss the H Street Festival on Saturday.  Sunday, though, represents a chance for the best of the weekend, which means maybe a jaunt to Eastern Market, and coffee at Peregrine Espresso.  I’m also missing the Cider Festival at Great Country Farms this weekend, which is a great opportunity to get away from it all and chill in the country, or up at the vineyard across the street.  Instead, I think I may try and find a place to watch my beloved 49ers.
