Weekly Wanderings [08.14.17]

Washington, D.C.’s Summer Restaurant Week kicks off this Monday! Enjoy Prix-Fixe menus for dinner for $35 and brunch & lunch for $22. Many of the restaurants featured are usually much more expensive, so restaurant week is great time to taste-test all of those fancier restaurants you’ve been hearing about. We’re heading to a few this week and will make sure to feature those places on the blog. We’ve been to a few restaurant week’s in the past and it is definitely worth it!

Have you been taken advantage of this surprisingly temperate August? If you’d like to do more to get outside and enjoy it, check out these 10+ Bike Group ridesand see the best of the district that two wheels can offer.

Speaking of the great weather, have you checked out any of Eater’s 17 Beer Gardens to relax in? Some of our favorites made the list (Dacha, Sauf) and a few we want to try before the season is over (Wunder Garten, Takoda).

Jazz in the Garden, the second to last of the season, is this Friday, August 18th. Check out great music, delicious food (see the menu here), and some of the gorgeous statues and sculptures in the garden. Hot tip? Try to get a seat near the fountain if you can to be the heat.

Looking to cool down this weekend? Beginning August 18th, through September 3rd, the National Harbor is hosting the ‘Summer Snow Globe.’ Not only will there be music & craft cocktails, there is also the promise of falling snow.

Dru Hill will be performing at Howard Theater this Friday. The group was founded in Baltimore in the 1990’s and has numerous #1 hits. They are seen as “torchbearers” for R&B. Tickets are still available for $40-$80.

The Juniper Tree and Bastianello are being performed at the Wolf Trap starting on Friday. According to the site they come from the “world of fairy tales and folk tales and touches on the subject of family with warmth, humor, heartbreak and redemption.” Tickets range from $32-$88.
