Brittany: The weather is finally scheduled to drop down to “sweater” – and, accordingly, the busy autumn social calendar is getting into full swing. Friday night you will find me poolside (hopefully chilly!) for the “Rebirth of Cool” party hosted by art-star Kehinde Wiley, in association with the amazing 30 Americans exhibit. Saturday is Crafty Bastards, an annual must-shop and then the night eventually takes me to U Hall for Clicks & Whistles. Sunday I think I will do some more quality-assurance on the beer, bourbon, and tofu (yay!) at Smoke & Barrel.

Tom: Finally! A weekend without work! Just in time for the marvelous Crafty Bastards fair, where my friend Art will be plying a delicious art project involving maple syrup and a whiskey barrel. This weekend is also a friend’s blood drive, so I might be getting my donate on in Falls Church on Saturday from 8 to 12:30p with the Masons. With no baseball but the playoffs this weekend, it’s finally time to get my search on for a good 49ers bar to watch this weekend’s game in. Anyone got a good lead for me?

Huzzard: I might be breaking some rules by providing no links to what I will be doing this weekend, but I don’t have any pictures of the inside of my condo online. It is going to be a great and wonderful weekend filled with the relaxing silence of nothing. I have no plans and for the first time in what seems like forever I have no plans. There is nothing like a nice relaxing weekend of being bored after an entire summer of travel and baseball. Of course that isn’t saying I won’t get a text message from someone wanting to watch the MLB playoffs or the Redskins game at a bar somewhere, but for now I am planning on enjoying every minute of my long lost boredom in isolation.

Moses: this weekend I’ll be enjoying activities un-Boston, in celebration of the Red Sox collapse! Friday night, I hope to pull a late-nighter to catch some live World Cup Rugby action, perhaps at Sollys.  Saturday is college football action, which means watching SEC stalwarts Alabama and Florida at Meridian Pint or joining the Alabama crazies at Old Dominion Brewhouse.  Sunday I’ll virtually jet to Byzantium at the Turkish Festival on Penn Ave from 11-7, purposefully failing to rein in my taste buds with lots of yummy Turkish delights (though I don’t like the Turkish Delight dessert).

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
