Looking for something to do this weekend? Well you should definitely consider heading over to see House of Cars: Innovation and the Parking Garage at The National Building Museum. The organization of the exhibit is fabulous and the historical significance is absolutely fascinating. You don’t want to miss this wonderful gem before it is to late, the House of Cars exhibit closes on Sunday, July 11th.
Who knew learning about the innovation of the parking garages could be so much fun!
The National Building Museum is located at 401 F Street NW and offers free admission.

When it’s hot outside, all I want to do is go to the movies. Something about sitting in an incredibly dark and cold room with a diet coke (or perhaps one of those yummy cherry frosty things) in my hand just makes it all better. For about 2 hours at least.
So, when I heard about DC’s first Buddhist film festival this weekend I thought, now this is really something, 4 days out of the heat – I am so in.
BuddhaFest is a four-day event being held June 17-20 at American University’s Katzen Art Center. BuddhaFest presents 12 films, including a world premiere, talks by leading American Buddhist teachers, meditations, and a Picnic for Peace.
Most tickets are $9.95 and festival passes are available starting at $47.75.
Now all you need is that delicious cherry frosty…

Hey! The coolest people in DC all have plans on Wednesday night, July 1st. They’ll all be hanging out at the Science Club, celebrating the first birthday of this here blog. And you’ll be there, right? Of course you will, cause you’re a mighty cool kid!
In addition to some cheap libations, you’ll get to pose in our hawt photo booth, donate to Bread in the City, and scarf the unofficial food of We Love DC, the veggie burger. You’ll also get to meet our super cool authors (most of whom will be rocking a color variation of this tee shirt so you can find us in the crowd) and chat with us about anything you want. More than anything, though, you’ll get to celebrate your love of our fine District.
So sharpie that onto your calendar. 7 p.m., one week from today. Make it happen!
