Tom: I am so ready for this weekend. Short weeks are always murder on my schedule, and weeks with jury duty are the same and this week was both! Amazing! Anyhow, this weekend looks to be about perfect, and that means I’m headed out on my bike. This weekend I’ll be taking Charlie down to Tour de Fat at Yards Park, as the bike festivals in DC are always a good time. Hopefully we won’t need a support vehicle. Sunday we’ll be heading to the Nats game to see if the Nationals have any spark this year or if they’re bound for another year of suffering.
Rachel: After a much needed night of rest and Netflix on Friday — and perhaps a quick pit stop at The Front Page for a lil’ happy hour action before — my weekend will include a stop off at Nats Park as they face the Texas Rangers and then a sweet jam session on Sunday as part of my FIRST Flashband experience. I signed up for the June Flashband project because the theme is “The Seven Songs of Country Music” and I freaking love country. So — if you like country too and wanna checkout this whole Flashband thing, be sure to stop by Hill Country Live on Sunday June 29!
Fedward: A convergence of events means we’re babysitting the Niecelets the same weekend that Sunny and Licorice (directed by none other than the Social Chair) opens, so we’re taking them on Saturday. If you’ve got young kids (target ages 2-5, but all are welcome) this odd couple of orangutans should be just the ticket. The show runs through June 14 so you’ve got plenty of opportunity to see it. Hashtag shameless plug. After babysitting duty ends Sunday evening we’ll head to the Passenger for a much needed brunch.
Joe: Is it really time to mow the lawn again? I should have read the fine print in that new home ownership manual more closely. Hopefully, I’ll be done in time to head over to RFK Lot 8 on Saturday afternoon to join the Screaming Eagles for the best tailgate in town (seriously). Then it’s time to root against the hated Sporks, also known as Sporting Kansas City as they take on the DC United at 7 p.m. A win moves the United into 2nd place in their conference — a huge step forward from last year’s disaster of a season. On Sunday, we’re hoping to finally make it over to the National Gallery of Art to see the Garry Winogrand photography exhibit before it leaves town June 8.
