Looking at my calendar for this weekend, I am shocked at how packed it is with things to do for free or for cheap in the DC area…
Choralis’ Summer Festival Concert at The Falls Church, featuring the Bach Magnificat, and the Mozart Requiem. Concert starts at 8 and is the culmonation of the weeklong festival series that helps youth get involved in choral music. Tickets start at $20.
Farmer’s Market in Courthouse: I have basil in my garden, I must get tomatoes and cheese for some excellent caprese, and since it’s going to be hot, some sorbet.
The DC Flickr Gallery Showing at El Tamarindo in Northwest will feature photographer by local photographers showing their works as part of a neat show. 7pm to 1am at El Tamarindo on Georgia Ave.
Folk Life Festival on the Mall. I’ve done photo books from the last few years’ festivals, and I hope this year will be just as photogenic. None of the last few years have been half as good as the Silk Road was the year it was here. That was a truly amazing sight to behold.
Barbeque Battle on Penn Ave. That’s right, the National Pork Championship is on the line this weekend at the Barbecue Battle. Last year’s winner, Smoked Encounters of the Third Swine, has a title to defend, after all. I’m all for grilled meat in public places, man, this is just my kind of thing. Tickets are $10, and proceeds benefit the Metropolitan Police Boys and Girls clubs.
What are you doing this weekend? Whatever it is, please remember to drink lots of water, because it’s gonna be HOT!
