Hurricane? What hurricane? With wet — but probably not dangerous — weather on the way, this weekend might not be a total wash after all. Wait. I mean. It might be a wash, but you uh, you get it.

Anyway. Here’s a roundup of what to expect this weekend in and around the Borderstan coverage area:


  • Adams Morgan PorchFest has been rescheduled.
  • 14th and U Farmers Market will be open and selling 20 varieties of apples, eight kinds of eggplants, seasonal squash and apple cider.
  • Meridian Pint Oktoberfest is still on, but it’s been moved indoors. Sorry, moon bounce aficionados.
  • Bentzen Ball continues with events across the city tonight, tomorrow and Sunday.
  • Like the Walking Dead? Well guess what: Actress Emily Kinney performs at U Street Music Hall on Sunday.
  • Funny people will read funny stuff at DC9 tonight.
  • Black Squirrel moved its pumpkin beer festival to next week.

Stuff you should know:

  • If you live in LeDroit Park or Bloomingdale, here’s where to get sandbags.
  • We are under a flood watch.
  • Howard University’s homecoming parade will shut down several roads near the university.
  • Metro’s Red Line will run every 20 minutes. Yellow will run every 24 minutes.
