Weekly Wanderings [05.01.17]

It’s May (Hi Justin Timberlake) – and that means it is Passport DC Month! What is Passport DC? Well, it’s basically a month-long journey around the world highlighting DC’s thriving international diplomatic community and its lively and varied culture. So, remember to stop by each week this May to hear the latest events for each week.

Another seasonal favorite kicks off this week – Truckeroo! You can find it in the Bullpen at Nat’s Stadium. 15+ of DC’s best and most popular foodtrucks gather into a food-bonaza. But, it isn’t just food!  Truckeroo also features live music, cold drinks, games, and even more. The first Truckeroo of the year is May 5th.

The Flower Mart is also this upcoming weekend-  check it out May 5th & 6th at the National Cathedral! Not only does it offer the best of DC flora & fauna, you can also get a free tote bag, take a photography class, gift vendors, free entertainment, and great food. Flower Mart is a Washington, D.C. mainstay event, and this will be its 78th year.

Opening on Wednesday, May 3rd, the American Visionary: John F. Kennedy’s Life and Times is arriving at the American Art museum. Kennedy, the most photographed politician of that time. These photos were used to create a new vision of America. This exhibit brings together seventy seven images curated from the JFK Presidential Library, Getty images, private collections among other archives.

Since Cinco de Mayo is fast approaching (yay) we wanted to point out a few places having specials, events, or fun things going on. If you want to make a whole day out of it, you can purchase tickets for Cinco DC Mayo happening Friday and Saturday across the district.

Since most of our activities or interests some how end up revolving around food, which is not a bad thing in our opinion, we love to know about the new (and old) restaurants opening and closing in DC. We’ve seen the Mason Dixie biscuit place popping up all over Insta and can’t wait to give it a try (because bread). Abunai Poke is right down the street from E’s office so we will make sure to report back once we’ve tried it. We haven’t been to the two that are closing but our hearts always break a little for failed restaurants.
