Here are just a few suggestions of things to do in and around Shaw this weekend:
1. Dine on U - We're lucky to be so close to all of the great nightlife and dining options on U Street. On suggested culinary treat from the vibrant corridor comes from this week's edition of Five Bites at the newly revamped Metrocurean: Mushrooms sautéed in truffle oil and topped with Manchego cheese at Creme. I've had them and am a believer... they're delicious.
2. Check out the New Show at Long View - Attend tomorrow night's opening or just stop by to see the awesome works by 6 artists of Weber Fine Art at Shaw's very own Long View Gallery.
3. These Regular 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, the chance to get your freak on and knock back some drinks at places like Avenue, Be Bar, Nellie's Sports Bar, and Old Dominion Brewhouse, and great meals at Vegetate, Etete, or Queen of Sheba.
