Here are just a few of your exciting Shaw-based weekend options.
1. Friday Night Happy Hour at Nellie's - Drink specials, free build-your-own tacos, and great people watching (both inside and from the awesome roof deck). Check out this post for more details.
Nellie's Sports Bar
900 U Street, NW
2. Brunch at Veranda - Veranda is open Saturday AND Sunday for brunch (I *believe* they open at 11:30 each day...). I love brunch and missed out on Veranda last weekend, so hope to give it a try this week.
1100 P Street, NW
3. The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show Saturday and Sunday - The Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show is at the Convention Center this Saturday and Sunday. Check out this post or the show's website for more details.
4. 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.
