We Love Weekends – May 2 – 4

Tom: Though right now it looks like we’ll all be washed away by the weekend, the forecast looks pretty amazing. I see brunch in my future, and preferably somewhere with a patio so we can show off Charlie’s new sunglasses. I’m also thinking a trip to the burbs is in the offing, which means the (unholy?) trinity of Wegmans, Costco and the Arlington Farmer’s Market. Why Arlington? They have the best rosemary seedlings. I can’t explain it, it’s just true. After that, it’s off to Bull Run to pick up some grass fed beef. How much? Half a cow. Come by my grill this weekend and I will show you the tasty deliciousness.

Rebecca: Friday I’m be enjoying nice, sunny weather on the rooftop deck at Surfside before my friends and I hit the Poppy’s Suitcase show at Mason Inn. Saturday I’m up early for footie and then hitting the Taste of 8th Street. Sunday I’ll get to celebrating Cinco de Mayo early at El Rey with fighting luchadores, psychotroprical funk and tequila!

Fedward:  This is another weekend where I need to be in three places at once.  Saturday is the Spring Fling at the Soldiers Home and as a homeowner I find an expert talk about native plants newly relevant.  It’s also Derby Day at Southern Efficiency, with mint juleps on tap and hot browns under the broiler. But it’s also also the third annual DC-Baltimore Perl Workshop and I plan to shake my money maker, by which I mean “sit my ass in a chair and upgrade my programming skills.” Maybe I’ll do that first and THEN go to Southern Efficiency. Sunday there’s more Perl to be hacked at the DCBPW Hackathon, and after that I’ll unwind with the usual brunch at the Passenger. And while Monday might be Drinko de Mayo for some people, between the limepocalypse and my general loathing for amateur nights, I might just sit at home and drink daisies instead of margaritas. Besides, the Social Chair doesn’t really care for tequila.

Don: I’m so giddy to see the sun that I’m not sure I can have coherent plans other than walking around and marveling at not being soggy. I wish we’d had a few more days to dry off so we could do more strolling in our favorite outdoor locations, but as it stands I would expect a lot of mud in Rock Creek Park and Teddy Roosevelt Island. So we’ll stick to the more paved & drained outdoor fun, I think. We haven’t been to the National Gallery’s Sculpture Garden since the rink came down so it and the Zoo top our list, I think. On the one hand the zoo’s hills and slopes mean a lot harder walking for That Darned Toddler. On the other hand that means a more tired and sleeping toddler.

So maybe we’ll just see you at the zoo, huh?

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.
