Okay, so it’s Friday the 13th and by all accounts this should be a questionable weekend to say the least, right? WRONG! This weekend is literally going to be jam packed full of insanity and I literally almost can’t take it.
I mean honestly, I blog about events for a living but I’m a total observer/introvert at heart and so I very rarely find events that are intriguing enough to get me out of bed on weekend morning… … WEEKEND HITLIST: FRIDAY 13TH EDITION
While it is hard believe after we all watched on in horror as flurries of white fell gracefully from the sky this past week, the calendar doesn’t lie: spring is here. Soon, Old Man Winter will give up on terrorizing us with blustery winds and cold fronts, and warm weather will swoop in to save our souls. Or at least, that’s the kind of hope I’ve been clinging to as I cocoon under every blanket I own night after night. Spring brings more than sunshine, blooms, open-toed shoes, and wheezing, though. It also brings one of the cities best food options out of hibernation. Yes, that’s right, with warmer weather, the cities’ wheels start turning, delicious smells start wafting through 70-degree air, and food trucks are back in season. … DC FOOD TRUCKS WORTH TRACKING DOWN
Okay, so maybe it’s not necessarily summer as of yet — but a girl can dream can’t she!? Plus that GIF of Stewie from Family Guy just made me chuckle so I had to choose it for this despite it’s fairly loose relevence.
Trust me, you’re happy. You know you like it!
Alas — I digress, the spring/summer hybrid is officially in full swing. I know this because I put on my parka to go outside to walk my dog and was met with a bunch of hipsters dressed in shorts, boat shoes and Raybans.
If I’m being honest, I would admit to you that I’m a firm believer that birdhouses are having a major real estate crisis. I find that there are less and less folks willing to give up their picture-perfect tree limbs to house a monstrosity that is more or less a wonky, anti-chic decoration that’s meant to attract the very creatures that some have nightmares about (and yeah, by “some,” I mean me). Birds have been a source of discomfort for me ever since I a first popped open a bag of Lays at the beach and found that every seagull that has ever lived also shares my lust for salt (or any food, really) –– and they aren’t the least bit bashful about it.… BIRDHOUSE ARCHITECTURE: ART BY DOUGLAS BARNHARD
Okay, is it just me or does it feel like finding a bunch of killer events this weekend is like pulling teeth!?! I mean, seriously I really tried to compile my own independent information but I was struggling to put together a list that I was very proud of.
You see, I only recommend events that I could see either myself, my friends or family members attending because I’m trying to give you guys a good time. But it almost seems like all of DC is so wrapped up in the Cherry Blossom Festival that there has been a little bit of slack this weekend with the fun tickets!
Well lasses and laddies if it isn’t the weekend we’ve all been waiting for AKA St. Patty’s Edition, where the rivers run green and the beers taste exactly the same except they always put that weird green dye in them like #nothankyou.
