It’s great to finally be back in D.C. for a weekend! This weekend’s going to be PACKED, due to a high volume of awesomeness happening all weekend. Here are your best bets for eating, drinking, and dancing in and around Borderstan this weekend. Enjoy!
Thursday, June 16
1905 just announced a new addition to their “Neighborhood Nights” (which include Taco Tuesday [$3 lamb tacos, $4 Pilsener Ace beer and $6 taco/Pilsener combos] and Burger Wednesday [half-priced burgers]) called Thursday Nights Nines. Every Thursday they’ll offer off-menu, seasonal small plates at the bar for $9 each. They change every week so you won’t get bored!
After dinner, do NOT miss Moombahton Massive IV at U St Music Hall tonight, hosted by Dave Nada and featuring sets from Nadastrom, Sabo, Jen Lasher and more. Come celebrate DC’s OWN Moombahton at it’s best; Nada pretty much created the genre, which is best described as a combination of house, dubstep, and reggaeton, right here in DC so it’s gonna be legit. Here’s a preview of Nada’s latest Moombahton mix, Blow Your Head Vol. 2. The best part is that entry is FREE if you sign up in advance. Doors at 9.
Orrrr, you may have snagged a ticket to the sold out Yeasayer show at 9:30 Club. Lucky duck.

Welcome to Summer: “Hot, Hazy & Humid, With a High of 90”
I know the rapture didn’t happen, but are we sure? It is hot as Hades out there. No records were broken, but it is full on sauna out there. The The Washington Post has a fun poll up where you can vote on how hot you think it will get this summer. Go check it out, remember to hydrate but as WJLA reminds us, do NOT do so with city fire hydrants.
