Weekend Shoutouts

Happy Thanksgiving! The following are some long-weekend suggestions in and around Shaw to make the most of what is my favorite holiday.

1. Eat, Don't Cook, Tomorrow - There are several local restaurants serving up Thanksgiving meals for the culinary-challenged. Most require reservations, so give them a call first. Here are few establishments I know are serving on this thankful holiday: Vegetate, Morrison and Clark Inn, and Viridian.

2. TAINTsgiving this Thursday at DC9 - Taint, a "monthly electro-rock indie dance night with an assortment of queer performance and video art thrown in for good measure," is this Thursday, November 22nd at DC9.

3. Go to Town - Friday night is the first-ever weekly "Downtown" event, and Saturday's the second-ever weekly "Uptown" dance event.

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 The Space, Avenue, Be Bar, Nellie's Sports Bar, and Old Dominion Brewhouse, and great meals at Vegetate, Etete, or Queen of Sheba.

Have a suggestion for a weekend activity? Leave it in the comments or email me at slumhistorique at yahoo dot com.

We went to Veranda last Saturday night with friends. Good food with attentive wait staff. Only complaint was it was very a little on the noisy side but in their defense, it was Saturday night! We will also be going back for sure. Check Veranda out your next night out!
