The upstairs lounge at Blackbyrd, 2005 14th Street NW, will become a flea market on the next two Sundays, March 18 and March 25. The pop-up vintage fashion event, DC Flea, is being organized by Philissa Williams and Dafna Steinberg — who hope to bring a little bit more than just the browsing to the shopping. Williams and Steinberg said music and drinks will be available at the bar. Hours are noon to 6 pm on both Sundays.
“March will be our first month and we are hoping for it to be a success,” says Steinberg.
Men’s and women’s vintage clothes and accessories (plus some other goodies) will be on display. There will be a number of different sellers there, so stop by for some great fashion finds!
Words cannot describe now excited I am for le weekend. Two days to breathe, hang out, do whatever you want. Admittedly, my weekend is going to be as hermit-like and low-key as possible as I recover from a whirlwind week and prepare for DC Beer Week and DC Summer Restaurant Week next week, but there’s still tons going on.
This is what I plan on leaving the house for… Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Friday, August 12
New Borderstan hotspot, Blackbyrd (2005 U Street NW), a raw bar and drinks spot brought to you by the folks behind Marvin and American Ice Co. etc., is a great place to start your night. I went last week after the GiltCityDC Yeasayer at 9:30 Club show and am now a huge fan. Think: Marvin’s classy older sister with lots of booths, high-top tables and a good wine list. Great cozy spot for a nightcap after a night out on U Street OR catch their $1 oysters at happy hour through 7 pm as you’re just getting your night started.
