Do you love shopping, spring, and free burgers? So does Morton’s Steakhouse, and they’re acting on that love this weekend. If you shop at any participating Georgetown retailer any time this week, (the list can be found here under the “Special Events” tab), you’re invited to a celebration on Morton’s patio this Saturday from 2 to 5 p.m., where you can snack on some free miniature cheeseburgers and drink spring-inspired cocktails in honor of the newly-warm weather. Morton’s is located on 32nd and Prospect, just a short walk from campus.
It Takes Two
The Fridge DC is a relatively new art gallery which aims to expose both established and emerging artists from the D.C. area. This Saturday, the gallery hosts the opening reception for Back in Black, their latest visual art installation. The exhibit is a collaboration between D.C.-based artists Tim Conlon and Mark Jenkins, the latter of which is known for his street installations such as parking meter lollipops, curbside giraffes, and traffic circle merry-go-rounds. Back in Black and includes paintings, prints, and sculptures which fuse the styles of the artists. The Fridge is located at 516 8th Street SE, close to the Eastern Market Metro stop on the Orange or Blue line. Saturday’s opening reception goes from 7 to 11 p.m.
Most people with subscriptions to National Geographic only have them so they can look at the pictures. So save the money and the paper, and go to the National Geographic Museum instead. Through April 12, you can see the National Geographic Image Collection, a compilation of LED screens surrounding the outside of the building. The screens showcase some of the 11.5 million photographs that the magazine has in its archive, some of which have never been published or seen by the public before. The museum is located at 1145 17th Street, and you can get there via the G2 bus from the front gates.
