It’s a long standing tradition and has been one of our constitutional rights for decades. Or at least, should’ve been. After a brief repose in 2012, our God-given right as Americans was given back to us – Seersucker Thursdays. Memorial Day weekend might mark the beginning of summer for everyone else, but National

Weather:  Prepare yourself for the monsoon that is about to hit the district. 100% chance of downpours all day Saturday and Sunday with temperatures in the 60’s. That rain gear is getting put to good use this spring. Awesome events you can attend this weekend: It’s all about the beer. Hit up

FAMOUS FORECAST Overcast. Rain. 70’s. You know the drill. FRIDAY JAM Brought to you by Taz Jones of Bryant Row. Here’s a challenge for you: spend the next 7 hours absolutely crushing life. It’ll make the reward of this weekend all the better. And while you’re at it, crank our Friday jam from

Ignore the disagreeable rainy weather in D.C., for rooftop drinking season is here at last. Finding the perfect elevated watering hole is serious business that requires thorough research, which is why we did the hard part for you. All that’s left to do is enjoy the bevs and the views. Whether you

How’s your hangover? Ours is still kicking and we’re confident it will see us through the rest of the week. This past Saturday was the 2016 White House Correspondents’ Dinner, but the partying started well before the weekend and Sunday hangovers were nursed with more booze and brunch.
