Weekly Wanderings [04.03.17]

Interested in print making? Well, the Phillips Collection is hosting “Prints & Posters” on April 6th, beginning at 5:00pm. Learn about Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s process and the art of printmaking. You can even try your own hand at print making and bring your creation home with you!

Learn about horticulture while getting your hands dirty! The United States Botaical Garden is hosting “You Can Grow It!”, and event that gives you the starting skills (and seeds) to create your own garden.  It will begin April 3rd, but will run through October 15th.

Bring in Saison season with Right Proper, in Brookland. On April 8th, from 1-5pm, welcome Allagash Brewing Company and vote on your favorite brews.

The National Museum of American History (T’s personal favorite) has several new exhibitions opening in April. One we’re looking most forward to is “Modern Medicine and the Great War”, which delves into the ways new medical technologies and techniques were made for and adapted to the battlefield. Check it out beginning April 7th.

Chicago, the well-known and longest running Broadway play (who knew?) is coming to the Kennedy Center this April 4-16th.  As a fan of the Oscar winning film, this is definitely a show to see!

Anything involving Misty Copeland makes its way onto my radar, as a curator of ‘Ballet Across America‘ will celebrate creativity and diversity in ballet. Running from April 17-23rd, the tickets are relatively reasonable and it will include special guests who are sure to be full of talent.

This coming weekend (April 8th), the DC Wine Fest will take over the downtown area. Dubbed an “elevated tasting experience” which includes food, live music and unsurprisingly vino. All wines will be available to purchase which is a big plus.  Tickets run from $38 for general admission to $65 for VIP. Let us know if you happen to swing by!
