I'm feeling inspired again this week to touch on some of the many exciting things Shaw offers to make your weekend amazing... Take a look and enjoy our awesome neighborhood:
1. Brunch is BACK at Vegetate on Saturdays - Oh happy day -- Starting this weekend, Vegetate is again serving brunch! This go-round, brunch is on Saturdays (which I personally prefer over Sundays) starting at noon. They will offer items from their regular menu along with brunch specials weekly and, I assume, their delicious Bloody Marys!
2. Beautiful Weather = Perfect Time to Hang Out on Nellie's Sports Bar's or The Space's Roof Deck - Nellie's Sports Bar at 9th and U Streets, NW and The Space is at 903 N Street both have great roof decks for taking in the lovely spring weather.
3. Celebrate with the Queen on Sunday - from 5 to 7 pm on Sunday (April 27), Queen of Sheba Restaurant (1503 9th Street, NW) will express their gratitude for the community's support of their liquor license application and celebrate the Ethiopian Easter during a reception this weekend with free food and tastings of Ethiopian beers and wines.
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.
