Friday Round Up
Awesome events: Lace up your Keds – it’s 90s night at Nats Park as the Nationals take on the San Fran Giants; Rosé your way to the Summer Soirée today at the Ritz Carlton; A bubble race?! You have to see it to bub-lieve it – tomorrow at RFK; 3 Stars Brewing Company is celebrating 5 years tomorrow with a Monster Bash; The deals at Alexandria’s summer Sidewalk Sale might be hotter than summer itself; Singleling Saturdays is a thing – at least this weekend – at the Black Cat; And in case you don’t have enough on your plate, Summer Restaurant Week starts Monday!; The Roots are taking a break from The Tonight Show to give us some Quest Love at MGM National Harbor on Sunday.
Whoever has time for six dates in one night, should have enough time to plan not getting caught; DC just got rid of the last phone booth in town; An app that will fight our parking tickets?! There is a god!; This is the most affordable neighborhood in DC; Library cards aren’t just for books anymore; Aziz Ansari might actually be a master of life; Because why wouldn’t you design a shirt with Mitch McConnell’s face on it?; Will you watch Facebook’s new video service?; Bruce Springsteen is about to show Broadway who’s boss; Science says there’s an addiction to Trump.
The Dos and Don’ts of August Networking are brought to you by someone who has made every mistake in the book and lived to pass along the knowledge to you. Besides, what else are you going to do during recess?
If it’s not online, it doesn’t exit. (That could also be a bad thing, but not here.) This is where we show you the stuff we’re glad exists – like this video of Managing Editor Kathryn Lyons not crushing a test on TV. We cannot confirm that Kathryn is excited about this as we are.
