Here are some suggestions of things to do during the weekend in Borderstan, really close by or in the city. (Also, check out Borderstan’s “July 4th: A Guide to the Guides, Street Closures.”)

El Paraiso Restaurant, 1916 14th Street, NW, Borderstan

El Paraiso Restaurant at 1916 14th Street NW is always a perfect choice for a lazy weekend. Good cheap food with flavor… not fancy with okay service. If you are into Latin American soccer, this is the place to watch your team play while enjoying a beer and the company of many amigos. Mexican-Salvadoran places in DC are often good substitutes for traditional Greek-owned diners–since we seem to lack as many as other large cities.

City Lights of China at 1731 Connecticut Ave NW. Just north of Dupont Circle, it is an old favorite in the area. If Chinese food is what you are looking for this is a good place to go and have a delicious meal. The menu is divided between specialties from the regional cuisines of Szechuan and Canton.
