Escape from the Hilltop: Bob Saget, a taste of Georgetown, and Arlington culture
Can you imagine a more perfect time for Columbus Day? We’re not only speaking for ourselves when we say that the past two weeks have been tough. That’s why this weekend, it’s time to take a break from Lau, leave campus, and make some discoveries. Here are a few events worth exploring:
D.C.’s finest curbside cuisine
Tantalize your taste buds on the final day of the D.C. Curbside Cook-Off! Starting at noon today, head on down to the Old Washington Convention Center (a.k.a. CityCenterDC). Try to name one thing that’s better than a day filled with free cupcakes, Sweetflow, and empanadas. Seriously, we dare you.
What about Jesse and the Rippers?
Bob Saget is at the Warner Theater tonight at 8 p.m. Need we say more?
Eat to help those in need
If you miss Friday’s Curbside Cook-Off, then starting on Saturday at 11 a.m., you’ll have another shot at getting those free samples. All along Wisconsin Avenue, from M Street to South Street, some of Georgetown’s finest restaurants will show their stuff for “Taste of Georgetown.” The event, sponsored by the Georgetown Ministry Center, will donate proceeds to help the homeless, bringing them food, shelter, and psychiatric care. It’s not quite just desserts, but it’s certainly food for thought.
DC’s Lincoln Center Only Cooler
This weekend marks the opening of Artisphere, Arlington’s newest cultural center. Featuring ballroom dancing, salsa lessons on Tuesdays, Shakespeare plays, and art galleries—with coffee shops and wi-fi included—Artisphere’s got it all.
This Saturday, check out the opening hosted by Bright Young Things. It’ll feature DJs, a balloon artist explosion, an interactive photo wall, and more! Artisphere will also hold open houses on Sunday or Monday, in case you can’t make it over on for the opening party.
