Well hello there, Borderstanis. Yet another week has flown by and the weekend is nearly upon us. Lots going on locally this weekend:
Thursday. Ever since an unseasonably warm start to the week, I’ve had sundresses on my mind. If you’re also itching to put away your sweaters and break out the spring wardrobe, start your weekend off at ReadysetDC’s fashion:district Spring/Summer 2011 show this Thursday, April 14, 2011 at the Longview Gallery (1234 9th Street NW).
The event includes a full-length runway show and pop-up shops featuring local influential and innovative designers including; ARTAYA, Clockwise Clothing, Derringer Friday, Durkl, Ginger Root Design, Hugh & Crye and SAINTCHiC. Doors open at 7 pm, the show begins at 9 pm, and tickets are still available for purchase here. Proceeds from ticket sales also benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. What a tres chic way to support local business and a good cause.
March Madness Final Four! Opening Day! Cricket World Cup! Like it or not, sporting events are everywhere you turn this weekend. So do it right, and head to your favorite local sports bar to catch a game. My pick is Touchdown at 1334 U Street NW, a relative newcomer that’s already made a splash through their unique take on the classic sports bar concept, complete with local art and international flair. You can read my review of their soft opening party here.
In and around your March Madness schedule (if you still care), it’s worth it to wake up early on Saturday morning to head over to Touchdown for their Cricket World Cup viewing party as Sri Lanka and India face off in the final. Touchdown’s doors open at 6 am on Saturday in time for the game, and they’ll be offering a special breakfast menu until midnight. Alcoholic beverage service begins at 8 am and don’t worry, you are definitely allowed to disco nap after this one.
