WEEKEND HITLIST: FRIDAY 13TH EDITION

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

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

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

FEEL THE WIND BENEATH YOUR WINGS AT THE KITE FESTIVAL

Remember the kite-eating tree from the Peanuts comic strip? Every time Charlie Brown tried to fly his kite, the tree would snatch it from the sky and chew it up. Sometimes the string would be wrapped around the tree, sometimes it would be wrapped around Charlie Brown, leaving him to dangle upside-down from the branches helplessly like a meal for a spider.
