Max: Friday night I’ll be checking out the opening at Flashpoint for Adam de Boer’s “Finca”. Saturday I’ll be flipping through the pages of the second issue of Worn Magazine at a preview party in Georgetown, and possibly throwing my underwear on stage at the Super Diamond show at 9:30. Sunday I’ll be popping Advil and trying to get “Sweet Caroline” out of my head.
Brittany: My birthday falls on Saturday, so it is a pretty festive week for me. First stop is at Urban Style Lab. Jen did an amazing job overhauling my faded-out California “ombre” color and her sister Liana will be trimming my fringe this weekend so I can actually see what happens, even if I cannot remember. There will be birthday drinks with a couple of friends at The Gibson. Dress code is suits and bow-ties for the boys. Quelle adorbs, right? Sunday is the real party, though, featuring my amazing friends, djs, day drinking, and such, followed by an after-party on my friend’s gorgeous Columbia Heights rooftop. Monday, one of my fave local causes, 826DC is having a fundraiser at my fave bar, The Passenger, and Tuesday is the sure-to-be-rad Worn Magazine Issue 2 Party at U Hall.
Patrick: My weekend will start with meeting two great people who just moved into the area: Ryan Healy of Brazen Careerist and Rebecca Thorman of Alice.com. They just moved into Clarendon down the street from me and we’re going to meet up for a drink- however we’re still trying to figure out where we should go. I’m leaning towards nearby Lyon Hall but I’d appreciate suggestions from our readers! After drinks I’ll be checking out The Arlington Player’s production of Cabaret. Saturday my roommate is dragging me out to Jumbo’s Pumpkin Patch to make good on a Living Social deal. Afterwards I plan on taking her to Ben’s Chili Bowl for the first time ever-I am always surprised when I meet somebody that hasn’t been there! I’m capping off the weekend with another show- Henry VIII at the Folger Shakespeare Library.
Tom: This is the great big weekend of family! Tomorrow, after a quick meeting in the morning, we’re going to take advantage of the good weather and see if we can’t get in a museum or two, I’m kinda jonesing to see the Rockwell exhibit that Ben liked so much. Friday night, as Tiffany’s parents and grandparents arrive, we’re all headed to Carmine’s for a big family dinner where someone else will have to do the dishes. Saturday and Sunday are going to be played by ear, but as we are a breakfast people, I suspect we’ll drop in on Ted’s Bulletin in Barracks Row, or maybe also the Cap City Diner.
Dave: Another weekend, another acoustic rock show for me. The Greensides will be taking up real estate inside The Exchange this Friday evening, and the plan is to cover American Girl so loudly that Obama wanders the block over from the White House to tell us to turn that racket down. Good times will be had by all. So good, in fact, that I don’t know if I can handle much more than epic amounts of college football on Saturday. When the dust settles from the day, it’ll be time to find a solid brunch spot, or at least make my semi-weekly appearance at Brooklyn Bagel up in Courthouse. According to the Google Maps review, it apparently is nicer than Mt. Everest.
Rebecca J: Friday I’ll be celebrating the weekend by stopping at Blue Ridge in Glover Park to check out the waning days of their Octoberfest and sample their new line of on-draft beers. Saturday I’m off early to the Glover Park – Burleith Farmers’ Market to get me a fresh supply of eggs, some artisan cheeses and fruits and veggies. After I’m off to my WAWSL footie match in Potomac MD. If you haven’t been up to this area of the region, it’s definitely a solid place to go for a fall drive filled with horse pastures. Post match, I’m back home as the 5-0 Mizzou Tigers take on Texas A&M. For Saturday evening I’ve been DYING to check out theBlack Squirrel so I’ll head their to specifically sampel their Pumpkin Ale. Sunday I’m playing another morning footie match, followed by brunch at Levante’s in Dupont Circle. Mimosa? Yes, please! The rest of Sunday will be dedicated to much loathed laundry and house chores. Bluergh.
