Are your friends already leaving town to get a jump start on Thanksgiving festivities with family?
Never fear. We have plenty of suggestions for the weekend to keep you busy — with or without your buddies.
If you venture outside Saturday or Sunday, expect daytime temperatures to hover in the upper 40s or lower 50s under sunny skies, according to the National Weather Service. On Saturday night, the temperature is expected to dip to the upper 30s. By Sunday night, the temperature is expected to hit the upper 20s. No nighttime rain — or snow — is predicted.
Here’s your guide for Saturday and Sunday:
- Catch Diarrhea Planet — four guitars, a bass and drums played by six friends who just want to be loud on stage — at Black Cat (1811 14th St. NW) at 9 p.m. Saturday.
- Play some games at the Watha T. Daniel/Shaw Neighborhood Library Saturday at 1 p.m. as part of International Games Day.
- Help make some blankets at Off Road Indoor Cycling (905 U St. NW) on Sunday for babies in need. The knitting and crocheting runs from 4:30 to 6 p.m.
Stuff you should know:
- A speakeasy-style bar on K Street has shut down. But there’s now another speakeasy-style bar in the area.
- A San Francisco-based clothing retailer that sells “absurdly soft” T-shirts, button-downs, sweaters, pants and accessories for men and women has opened on 14th Street NW.
- It’s isn’t too late in D.C. to snag a reservation for a turkey dinner or order the bird, pumpkin pie and other fixings for a feast at home.
- You also still can try a “Catcher in the Rye” with a side of smoked ham, sip a “Love Buzz” while eating a steak sandwich or have other food and drink pairing specials around the Borderstan coverage area as part of the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington’s “DC Cocktail Week.”
- This Saturday and Sunday, Red Line trains will run every 20 minutes, while trains on the Blue and Yellow lines will operate every 24 minutes, according to Metro. All other trains will have their normal weekend schedules.
