First, they gave us “Miracle on 7th” this past Winter, and then they introduced us to Spring with “Cherry Blossoms”. But who exactly is the mastermind behind these carefully designed and well executed pop-up bars that have sent social media users into a picture sharing frenzy? Well, we know… and they are called Drink Company. PERSON OF INTEREST: PAUL TAYLOR, DRINK COMPANY

This is that art exhibit that you bring your friends who aren’t all that into art to. This is the gateway drug to the art world. That’s right — schmooze ’em  up with a little line like “Oh my goshhhhhh you love hip hop and graffiti? SO DO I!!!!” — and BAM! They’ll never know what hit ’em. Art fiends for life…

ATTENTION ALL MEN: YOU’RE DOING IT WRONG. LESSONS FROM AN ART EXHIBIT

Just when you thought I couldn’t talk about the Yayoi Kusama exhibit anymore — some jerk went and did the absolute most mega adorable gesture on the planet and — surprise! We’re back!

DC’S FINEST FOODS: 2017 JAMES BEARD AWARDS FINALISTS

James Beard. If you’re any sort of foodie at all, the name probably rings a few bells. James Beard Awards are, more or less, the Oscars of the food industry. It’s a universal pat on the back for chefs everywhere that means (again, I’m paraphrasing here): “Your recipes are delicious. Make more.” The awards are held on the first weekend in May and honor everyone from chefs to restaurant owners, wine professionals, food journalists, cookbook authors, and restaurant designers, among other food professionals.

SPRING FESTIVALS = FAMILY FUN

It’s spring, and that means spring break, and that means kids home from school. You may fear you’ll quickly run out of activities to do with the little ones, the Play-Doh will turn hard, and they’ll finally tire of watching Frozen.

What to do? Sure, you can go to the Smithsonian and watch To Fly! again, but when it’s over, try out one of the area’s spring festivals. SPRING FESTIVALS = FAMILY FUN
