We Love Weekends: Apr 4-6

Rachel: Friday night’ll kick-off when I catch up with some friends I haven’t seen in awhile. We’ll be gathering at the first-ever Unplugged 9 Songwriter Series show at Hierarchy Art Gallery in Adams Morgan. Then Saturday is a big day … er … night … since it’ll be my first Nats game of the year! I look forward to hearing the buzz of the crowd and seeing the skyline view of the city from the press box. I’m also really looking forward to breathing in the fresh air and keeping score in real-time. There’s just something so very zen about it all. Then, I’ll wrap the weekend with a softball game on Sunday afternoon in Glover Park. I’ve still got a broken foot but that doesn’t mean I can’t sit on the bench and help motivate my team toward victory!

Rebecca: Whoa nelly this weekend kicks ass. Friday afternoon I’m catching the early (6pm) sold out show  of Kraftwerk at the 9:30 Club. Saturday as part of the National Cherry Blossom Festival, I’ll be doing yoga on the Mall from 10-12 after which I’ll grab some noms at the returning District Flea as I peruse the stalls. Saturday evening I’ll hit The Dunes to check out DC’s very own Furniteur at her first show. Sunday it’s footie in the morning and Elsinore at DC9 at night.

Tom: Like a thirsty man returned from the desert, I will be drinking deeply of the waters of baseball this weekend. The Nationals have a three-game stand against the hated Braves this week, so I will be repping Natstown. Sunday is Screech’s birthday, so look forward to some random Mascot adventures that afternoon. Also this weekend is a neat event from our friends at Feastly which is part of a nationwide series called Salo. It’s a pop-up for Phillipino cooking, and the menu includes halang-halang and Agos-os, which you will have to google, but then will want immediately.

Fedward:  The Social Chair has left for NYC so I’m on my own until Sunday.  One option is to liquor up and riot, with perhaps a DB3 and a stop at Ivy and Coney, or maybe whiskey on tap at the Partisan. Or I could work on my career at Startup Weekend (but if anybody knows the organizers let them know they really need to up their social media game). Practically speaking I’ll probably just head to Annie’s and do some home improvements without the wife around to get nervous (which isn’t to say I won’t reward myself with a Red Apron steak when I’m done). Saturday afternoon also offers the opportunity to “welcome home” some WWII veterans at the Soldiers’ Home (complete with Marine Band). Sunday she’s back home, so we’ll wrap the weekend in our usual brunch-at-the-Passenger style.

Fedward Potz moved into the District in 1999 with a four year plan and never left. He enjoys good food, craft cocktails, photography, music, and long walks on the beach.
