We Love Weekends: Mar 21-23

Don: In my mind I’m dancing through green fields, even if Capital Weather Gang’s projections are kind of reserved. But who cares, it’s not snowing and after so long with near-freezing temps I’ll feel like I’m in the sub-tropics when it’s in the 50s. So the name of my game is going to be finding some outdoorsy stuff to do, though the spring uncertainty will mean a lot of playing it by ear. Our one concrete activity is a Sunday pickup of our third foster dog for PetConnect Rescue. We worried that we’d have an issue getting attached but it’s been fun being a part of getting dogs out of high-kill shelters and connecting them with homes.

Fedward: Like last weekend, the Social Chair and I are double-booked.  Friday night we have a friend’s birthday party, and Saturday night another friend’s going away party.  Without those plans we’d be moving into the Kennedy Center temporarily for the World Stages Festival and the opera I know as L’elisir d’amore (note to WNO: stop it with the English titles already – you’re never going to make fetch happen). We would also be making time for the Cherry Blossom Festival. Sunday’s brunch at the Passenger will round out our weekend as usual, double-booking or no.

Rebecca: Saturday looks to be BEAUTIFUL so I’ll spend my day outside soaking up the rays. First I’m in need of a bike to ride around the city, so I’m checking out the Used Bike Sale at Big Bear Cafe from 10-2pm. After it’s out to the town of Sharpsburg, MD for some fresh air and history.

Tiff: I’ve got friends in town for the annual Scope It Out walk benefiting colon cancer research, and they’ve got little kids, and we’ve got a little kid, and anyway, there will be a passel o’ strollers, probably playing tourist on the Mall if the weather holds out. (Please? PLEASE?) And then grilling, because nothing says “Winter, go away” like cooking outside with fire. Sunday finds us getting our local politics on at a neighbor’s meet and greet for Phil Mendelson‘s campaign for Council Chair.

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.
