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.
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?!
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!
