Rachel: Really looking forward to this weekend. Friday will be a much needed night IN before the rest of the weekend goes down. Saturday will be tail gating at Jiffy Lube Live for the Brad Paisley concert. Needless to say, I’m pretty pumped for that. Then Sunday I’m hitting up the Bud Light Lime Pool Party at the Capitol Skyline Hotel. (PS – Who says Klout isn’t good for anything … ‘cuz my access to this event is strictly due to a Klout perk … LOVE IT!) That’ll be followed by shared bill with fellow DC songwriter Nita Chawla at Bossa Bistro and Lounge in Adams Morgan. Music starts at 8 p.m. We’d love to see you there!

Mosley: I’m going to be Mr. Lame this weekend and get the last of my packing down for moving out of my apartment early next week.  But if I had the time, I’d love to take advantage of this awesome late September weather we’re having.  Maybe take a walk to the Arboretum and see the Capitol Columns; or walk up the Rock Creek Park trail; or finally checking out the Boundary Stones.  All things I’ll have to wait for until next week, before I head off on my trip.

Nicole: I’m hoping to make my honest weekends a signature thing, so I’ll be straight with you again: I am taking a long weekend, and I am going to spend it studying for the GMAT. Saturday morning will be the highlight – it’s DCPS Beautification Day, and I’ll be volunteering with the Caps at Thurgood Marshall Elementary School. But you can’t keep a party girl down! Saturday night I will be hitting it hard, demolishing all challengers at Apples to Apples, Taboo, and a very complicated version of charades I am happy to introduce you to (and subsequently beat you at.)

Fedward: We’re taking advantage of the National Building Museum’s late Thursday hours to get ahead of our weekend with some mini golf. Friday night the Social Chair has plans, so I might go console myself at Fiola with one of Jeff Faile’s famous Negroni variants (remember: we knew him when). Saturday we’re babysitting so the Eldest Niece of the Social Chair can have a birthday party. Sunday we’ll finish the weekend with our traditional brunch at the Passenger.

Don: Music, drinks, puppies and code, oh my. I’m starting off the weekend early Friday evening at The Yards to see our own John Athayde in his superhero evening identity as part of Juniper Lane. How many concerts can you take your dog to, after all? Then I’ll bolt down the street to try to join a friend and valued colleague for his going-away shindig. The plans beyond that are sketchy, though they’re going to be heavily biased towards the out-of-doors, given the lovely early fall weather we’re having. Except to the extent that computer obligations will tie me to my laptop. Maybe I’ll find a nice patio…

Well I used to say something in my profile about not quite being a “tinker, tailor, soldier, or spy” but Tom stole that for our about us page, so I guess I’ll have to find another way to express that I am a man of many interests.

Hmm, guess I just did.

My tastes run the gamut from sophomoric to Shakespeare and in my “professional” life I’ve sold things, served beer, written software, and carried heavy objects… sometimes at the same place. It’s that range of loves and activities that makes it so easy for me to love DC – we’ve got it all.
