Weekly Wanderings [10.17.2017]

This Week…

What’s happening in the District this week!

  • Murder House Party! A Renwick Gallery Opening, October 20. Murder Is Her Hobby: Frances Glessner Lee and The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death explores the surprising intersection between craft and forensic science. It also tells the story of how a woman co-opted traditionally feminine crafts to advance the male-dominated field of police investigation and to establish herself as one of its leading voices. Not to mention, it is insanely cool (get a sneak peek).
  • The Wharf isn’t done introducing new stores, restaurants, and concepts!  Kith and Kin will feature Chef Onwuachi’s bold Afro-Caribbean takes on goat, oxtail & seafood in a posh, modern dining room. Opening October 19th.
  • That bar you’ve seen instas of left and right is called Future of Sports and it is up and running. Check it out here.
  • Catch a DC classic, Boo at the Zoo, from October 20-22nd. More details.
  • Hirshhorn has been on a roll these past few months and they are opening a new exhibition, What Absence is Made Of, October 18th.
  • Second City is bringing “When Life Gives You Clemens” to the District from October 19th & 20th. Tickets ad more info here.
