Philz is scheduled to have complimentary coffee at Roofers Union’s Jug & Table (2446 18th St. NW) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Sunday, according to an event post on Yelp. The coffeehouse chain is slated to open its first East Coast location at 1827 Adams Mill Road NW next month.

In the Dupont Circle park, Dupont Festival is set to offer free roses to passersby beginning at noon Sunday. The Dupont Circle Hotel has paid for 400 of the flowers for the second annual Valentine’s Day giveaway.

“It was lots of fun last year,” said Aaron DeNu, principal at Dupont Festival. “They go pretty quick.”

DeNu added: “Roses are red, violets are blue and Dupont wants you!”
