I'm running low on time this morning so can't really investigate and write about the many exciting things going on in Shaw this weekend. In addition to this woefully abbreviated list, I encourage you to speak up in the comments on things people should do this weekend!
1. be: studio54 Tonight - featuring the best music from the notorious disco era and $5 Redbull Vodkas, be bar is the place to be tonight.
1318 9th Street, NW
2. Hit the Bloomingdale Farmers' Market on Sunday - held from 10am to 2pm at 1st and R Streets, NW, this farmers' market is awesome. Grab a drink at the newly opened Big Bear Cafe while you're over there!
3. There's Always This Fun Stuff To Do in Shaw - These regular weekend options are always great: the Liberation Dance Party at DC9, the shows at 9:30 Club, Black Cat, Arena Stage, and Studio Theater, the cultural offerings of the Warehouse Arts Complex, Project 4 Gallery, the Ninth Street Gallery, and the Long View Gallery, and the chance to get your freak on and knock back some drinks at places like Avenue, Be Bar, and Old Dominion Brewhouse.
As always, email me suggestions for weekend shoutouts at slumhistorique at yahoo dot com!
