I am meeting up with two girlfriends from high school in DC this weekend and I am trying to think of "things to do". I lived in DC for three years, after grad school and go back often, so I know the area and the available museums, galleries, parks, etc. pretty well. What I am looking for is is there anything particular we should know is happening this weekend? Keep in mind that we are 46, not that that means we have one foot in the grave. There will be drinking involved. I have poked around various websites with little success, except to find what is happening the the art galleries (I would love it... them....not so much) and that there may be some cherry blossoms getting started.
We are getting in early afternoon Friday and leaving early afternoon Sunday. I plan to spend the morning Friday furniture shopping in the modern stores in Georgetown and then lunch with a grad school friend at Bistro Francais, for old times sake.
Are there any new restaurants, bars that a couple of middle aged women should check out? Any new galleries. Keep in mind that we are not really big shoppers, so please don't mention the newest mall....I can shop here. Any good music in town? A great show etc.? What new things have popped up in the last couple years, or is coming to town this weekend....other than frat boys and green beer????/
We are staying in Crystal City (sad to say) as one of my friends husband's has an apartment there. But, hey, we are right on a metro line so we can go anywhere.
So, suggest away. What don't I know about????????????????
