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.
