It’s DC Pride Weekend so break out the beads and get ready to dance. Plus on top of that we’ve got a run down that will make you proud to live in this city so be prepared to have some fun over the next three days.

Nothing says get this party started like a three day weekend. For those of you staying in town, we’ve got a stacked weekend of very DC things to do. And bonus, a majority of it is free because that’s how DC summer rolls.

Happy Hours! And so much more.

Gold Cup that is. But if you’re not feeling the printed sundress and mandatory ray-bans, no worries. You can slip into something classy instead for Ball on the Mall that night or just spend the entire weekend sipping margaritas because it’s Cinco de Mayo. Whatever floats your boat, we’ve got a little bit of everything for you this weekend. Shake it, DC.

Hopefully this will be the last coldish weekend and we can enjoy the end of April without the rain. With that in mind, we’ve laid out an excellent weekend for you to get the most out of our amazing city.

It’s time for a slow, easy-going weekend. That said, DC is never really slow so we’ve pulled out some great events that cause low stress levels. See you there.

Yes, you read that title right. We chose it because who doesn’t love all three? Even more so, who doesn’t love a weekend packed with all three? We’ve got a great, diverse lineup ready for you so get ready, set, weekend!

Something is happening this weekend where the food and local culture decided to explode. From new brunch spots to DC art to local musicians, we’ve got a line up that’s sure to give you a heavy helping of the best of DC this weekend.

Instead of shelling out your cash at the usual watering hole, considering welcoming Spring at the gorgeous Yards Park this Saturday to support local business, local music, and a great cause. Local favorites The B-Side Shuffle will once again be treating the District to their super funky mix of original tracks and covers this Saturday at Taste of DC’s Drink The District wine event at Yards Park. After a Living Social ad, the $30 all-you-can-drink tickets are nearly sold out for the 5pm to 9pm slot (12pm tickets are long gone), however you can still purchase one of the remaining few while supporting a worthy cause.

It’s that time of year: Cherry Blossoms, patios and Easter. Ok, so maybe patios are a few weeks off but that doesn’t mean we all can’t have a good weekend anyway before March ends. Even if one or two of the days might require gloves…

Well not really, but in honor of the first weekend in spring we put together a good line up of events that will still keep you warm. Let’s jump right in.

Well it’s finally here folks, St. Patrick’s Day – another bead-throwing, day-drinking, semi-made up holiday that we’re perfectly ok with. But that’s not the only thing happening this weekend – take a look below for all events green and gold with a few extras thrown in.

Can anyone else sense just the lightest tinge of Spring in the air? Maybe it’s just me, but with DST this weekend and the Noquester behind us, it’s prime time to get out of the house and have a great weekend.

With spring starting to tease us, office brackets causing fights, St. Patrick’s Day in a few weeks and sequestration about to hit, it’s time to just pop bottles and hold on for the long haul because this month isn’t gonna slow down. So let’s say goodbye to February and hello to March with a weekend lineup sure to set the tone.

Five years ago a group of friends who shared a common interest in soul music decided they were going to put a mix together and summon all their friends into one space to dance, sweat, and have a good time. Turns out this group of over-achievers couldn’t stop at that. Since their humble beginnings at Dahlak (1771 U St. NW), what started as a small and somewhat unknown dance party has grown into the epic monthly throwdown of funk, soul, R&B, and hip-hop that is FatbackDC. I am sad to report that this Saturday will mark the final party at Liv/Bohemian Caverns/Tap & Parlour (Corner of 11th & U NW).
