The following are some suggestions of things to do in and around our great neighborhood this weekend:
1. Artist Reception at Long View Gallery - An artist reception commemorating the new Matt Hollis exhibition will be held tonight from 6 to 8 pm at the gallery. I am in love with this show and look forward to meeting the artist tonight. If you can't make the reception, swing by the Gallery some time this weekend; it's open daily from 11 am to 7 pm.

2. Food, Drink and Merriment at Old Dominion Brewhouse - This will be O.D.'s first full weekend in business following its grand opening last Saturday. See why this place will be a great neighborhood hangout and destination by grabbing a bite to eat, enjoying your first O.D. draft beer, watching a game, or playing photo hunt.

3. Check Your Resolutions - How are you doing on your neighborhood improvement oriented resolutions? Use the weekend to play catch-up on or to figure out what you're going to do to implement your resolution. I myself am buying a broom-y pick-up trash thing and have to make up for lost time (despite the weekend's frigid forecast, I plan to pick up a lot of trash; I haven't done so in 2 weeks).
4. The Usual Cool Stuff in and Around Shaw - There's so much to do it's hard to list, like the Liberation Dance Party at DC9, the shows at 9:30 Club, Black Cat, Arena Stage, and Studio Theater, and the chance to get your freak on and knock back some drinks at places like Avenue and Be Bar.
