Here’s a roundup of five fun ways you can spend your weekend in the District:
1. Grab some friends and attend Seltzerland
What better way to spend a Saturday than tasting more than 100 hard seltzers at one of D.C.’s hottest bars? Hook Hall will be turning into Seltzerland from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Patrons will have the chance to sip seltzers — including Blue Moon Light Sky, White Claw, and Vizzy — chow down on bar food, and capture the Instagram-worthy experience!

2. Experience the D.C. Dragon Boat Festival
Following a two-year hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic, D.C.’s Dragon Boat Festival is back in-person on Saturday! Now in its 19th year, attendees can witness these magnificent race along the water, followed by a number of cultural activities like the Lion Dance. Learn more here.
3. Don a pop-art-inspired outfit for the Hirshhorn Ball
Art installations, exhibits, live music, and an open bar?! The Hirshhorn Ball is back this Saturday and better than ever! With a pop-art theme, grab your perfect outfit and stroll through the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden and experience it all. Grab your tickets here!
4. Go on a Blind Date with a Book
You’ve heard of having a date with a book — but what about a blind date? If you’re looking for a low-key but still spontaneous way to spend your weekend then Reflume Co. has you covered! With a curated pop-up stand in Eastern Market on the weekends, you can do just that. Each book is wrapped in newspaper, with a paper on the front only revealing the genre, year published, and a short quote from a stranger’s online book review. Are you willing to take the leap?!
5. Take your pup to one of these dog-friendly bars
D.C. is the paw-fect place if you’re a dog-lover looking to have a drink! The District is crawling with beer gardens and bars that are pup friendly. As the weather gets warmer, grab your furry friend and head to one of our favorite dog-friendly bars where you can enjoy it together!
