Friday Round Up
We’ll be at Dock5 at Union Market from 10a-6p getting our #FamousMerch on for the Junior League of Washington’s 59th Annual Holiday Shops benefiting local non-profits here in the District!
Awesome events: There’s a new museum in town – The Museum of the Bible opens today!; Oyster Riot might be the rowdiest oyster event yet at Old Ebbitt. Shuck responsibly; Look, we don’t need a week dedicated to cocktails to feel better about drinking one too many, but it helps. It’s the last weekend to sip on DC Cocktail Week!; Remember David Arquette? Remember Sherlock Holmes? Well they’re one in the same this weekend through Nov 22nd at Warner Theatre; Is ice skating while drinking a good idea? Find out at the Top of the Gate winter ice skating rink; Marlon Wayans will be at MGM National Harbor to make you giggle on Saturday; Learn to make a Thanksgiving dinner that has a touch of spice with Chef Victor Albisu!
Introducing our first Morning Commute – a series where we pick up professionals in DC and take them to work. The catch? You won’t know where they work until we drop them off – unless you already know in which case, no one likes a show-off.
Drinking and ice skating doesn’t sound so bad compared to drinking and throwing axes; Miracle on 7th Street is back to get you in the holiday spirit; Could DC be the location to house the next Amazon HQ?; GET OUT WHILE YOU CAN AND DON’T LOOK BACK; Progressive millennials raise your hand – there’s a new hospitality brand comin’ for ya; Blake Shelton is thankful for all the support from everyone who agrees that he is not the sexiest man alive.
The busiest travel day of the year is upon us so how do you deal? Well we hope you have wine on hand. Good luck out there.
Our online store comes to life tomorrow 10am at Dock 5 at Union Market!
