It was a beautiful Saturday morning as more than 40 local vendors from DC Craft Mafia’s Spring Thing set up their tents with housewares, baby goods, jewelry, silk-screen T-shirts, hula hoops, art, photography and more for their Second Annual Spring Thing event. The vendors were set up in the parking lot of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church at 15th and P Streets NW. Lucky Dog Animal Rescue was there for furry fun and adoptions, and there was also live music by Dave Tieff early on in the show.
If your vision of the quintessential Borderstan Saturday includes handmade crafts, art, live music and dogs, then you’re in luck. Because this weekend (May 19) the DC Craft Mafia is returning to the neighborhood with its Second Annual Spring Thing.
The Spring Thing will take place in the St. Luke’s Episcopal Church Parking Lot at 1514 15th Street NW.
From 11 am to 5:30 pm, more than 40 local vendors will convene to display and sell their creative masterpieces, including DIY housewares, baby goods, jewelry, silk-screen t-shirts, hula hoops, art, photography and more.
Dave Tieff will supply the live music and local charity, Lucky Dog Rescue, will be on-hand for furry fun and adoptions.

With just two days to go until the rapture/end of the world on Saturday, I really have high hopes for this weekend. Lots going on throughout the city and locally in Borderstan. Here are my top picks for where you should be eating, drinking, shopping, and dancing this weekend:
Thursday, May 19
The Capitol Deal is hosting a happy hour at Current Sushi (1215 Connecticut Avenue NW) from 5 to 6:30 pm featuring FREE Peroni and Svedka cocktails in addition to Current’s usual happy hour specials, including $4 sushi, from 5 to 7 pm. Run, don’t walk.
After you’ve happy hour-ed, walk across the street and check out the recently-opened Shake Shack at 1216 18th Street NW. Rumor has it the lines are still long, but everything I’m reading has my mouth watering. Check out some good coverage on Eater DC here.
