We Love Weekends Sep 14-16

Carl: While Don, Tiff, and the rest of the We Love DC nerds are getting more and more pale, clicking the reload button on the Apple Store website, this weekend I will be getting ready to launch my new book (already available on Kindle). So yeah, I will be getting more pale too. On Saturday I have a funeral to go to as well, and on Sunday I will be slipping into a corset or tights or something before going to the Renaissance Festival with Beautiful Fiancee. I also plan to get back to homebrewing after a hiatus, which reminds me – what beer is good for a spring wedding? I see one of those in my future. Let a brother know.

Rebecca: Friday I’ll be chillin like a villain in Glover Park checking out the newly opened Slate and Mayfair & Pine. Saturday morning WAWSL soccer kicks off early after which I’ll be heading over to the H Street Festival to catch some culture, urban fun, awesome food and spend the day outside. Saturday night I’ll likely stick to H Street and hit up the Star and Shamrock, Sticky Rice and The Rock and Roll Hotel. Filling out my weekend, Sunday will be bottomless mimosas at Scion in Dupont.

Rachel: I was gonna try to find a way to Fairfax to see one of my new favorite DC bands Norman Rockewell at Epicure Cafe on Friday night but sadly that’s been cancelled. You should still check ’em out on Sound Cloud though, they’ve got some groovy Americana tunes to jam to. Saturday’s a much need day to be lazy aka figure it out as a go. Then Sunday’s our band practice for the Velvet Lounge show on October 3. So that should be pretty fun.

Alexia: Friday night I’m playing the mainstage of the Black Cat with my band The Torches! Yay! We’re sharing the bill with Luray and Junior League. Come party with us! Saturday morning I’m heading to Dupont Circle for brunch with some girlfriends at Luna Grill. In the afternoon I’m hoping to make it over to H Street to catch Shark Week for free at the Rock & Roll Hotel, as part of the unfortunately named “Brodown Throwdown.” Sunday hoping to make it over to Paperhaus for a sweet house show. Weekend of rock!

Fedward: Wedding, wedding, wedding as it always was and ever will be (we have always been at war with Eastasia). Friday night I return from a work trip to NYC and might grab a pick-me-up from DC Reynolds or Chez Billy before turning in for the night. Saturday night we’ve got birthday cocktails with a friend, Sunday night we’ll drop by the Passenger as usual, and otherwise the to-do list for the wedding will occupy the weekend. PR minus thirty-six days and counting.

Tom: H Street Festivaaaaaal! Yeah, I’m pretty excited for the start of Fall Festival season (okay, that was probably last week for Adams Morgan Day, but I’m not a huge AdMo fan) but I’m pretty geeked out about the 6-block long festival on Saturday the 15th.

Natalia: Is it Saturday yet? I just want to get my H Street Fest on. If you are one of many headed down to the corridor, be sure to stop by the Fundrise Build Your City” exhibit to see some art, drinks some brews, and have a say in what you think makes DC such a great place. A full day of festivities means a chill night in (here’s to hoping), and Sunday I look forward to checking out Union Market.

Joanna: Gosh, since everyone else is heading to the H Street Festival, I figure I’ll do something different. …Who am I kidding? I’m going, too. Since I’ll be in the area, I’ll probably stop by Star and Shamrock to be with my people. On Sunday I’m looking forward to our pool closing – yep, you read that right. They’re letting dogs in for its last day, so I’ll be treating my retriever to a much-needed swim.

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.
