THE BIGGEST HOUSE IN DC IS SMALLER THAN THE GARAGE OF THE BIGGEST HOUSE IN THE WORLD

I was at an open house recently for some sprawling Palisades mansion with six or seven or eight bedrooms, and a family room, a living room, a sitting room, and a great room, and as I walked down yet another endless hallway, I thought, “this must be the biggest house in DC.  Also, they should give us Segways for these house tours.”  Turns out, it wasn’t even close to being the biggest house in DC.

YOUR WARM WEATHER WEEKEND HITLIST

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.

Needless to say I immediately regressed back into my dark lair of writer solitude. YOUR WARM WEATHER WEEKEND HITLIST

CHECK OUT THESE 4 NEW EATS NEAR NATIONALS PARK

Baseball season is back in the District. The Washington Nationals kicked off their 2018 quest for the World Series last week and will return home to Nationals Park this Thursday, April 5. For many fans, the best part of the baseball game is the food. Eating at the ballpark is an experience all its own (there’s just something about a hot dog in summer), but it can also be pricey and less creative than other nearby options.

PARADISE IS AT BUNNYLAND THIS EASTER

Bunnyland at Butler’s Orchard in Germantown, Maryland, is a powerful catalyst in helping to propel children into a mad Easter frenzy, the way a visit to Santa’s workshop would be a couple of weeks before Christmas.

This annual attraction, erected on the grounds of the popular area farm, features games and activities perfect for every preschooler (and some elementary schoolers as well).

The $9.50 admission price for children — $7.50 for adults and big kids — covers lots of activities, plus a goody basket. (Food, pony rides and face painting cost extra.)

Getting through the admission gate was painfully slow on the day we went. Small children amused themselves during the wait by trying to eat landscaping rocks and running away from their parents. PARADISE IS AT BUNNYLAND THIS EASTER

WEEKEND HITLIST: SEE SOME ART, SMELL THE FLOWERS & MAKE A DIFFERENCE

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!

Lucky for you — I never give up! And as a result,  I’ve compiled once again, a killer weekend Hit List, just for you. So get out, enjoy some art, smell some beautiful flowers and stand for a change! WEEKEND HITLIST: SEE SOME ART, SMELL THE FLOWERS & MAKE A DIFFERENCE

DC STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: GIRLS’ NIGHT IN

As the nation’s capitol, DC has naturally become a hub for innovation, startups, and businesses with backbone. We’re constantly pushing the conversation, and proud of it. While our scene is full of some of your “typical” startups (side note: can a startup actually be typical?) such as software companies, tech companies, and non-profits, we also continue to have folks push the envelope as entrepreneurs in other, more out-of-the-box areas. One example is a local startup catering exclusively to women: Girls’ Night In. DC STARTUP SPOTLIGHT: GIRLS’ NIGHT IN
