Washington DC: DC Weekend Preview: The May Flowers Better Be Worth It Edition

This post was submitted by John "Jolly" Bavoso

Event Details: DC Weekend Preview: The May Flowers Better Be Worth It Edition - :

Happy not-quite-the-weekend-yet, DC-based TNG readers! I like to joke that “spring” in the District is that one week of mild weather between being buried under a blizzard and melting in swamp-levels of humidity. Well, it looks like next week might be that week, as the weather people are calling for rain pretty much from this weekend onward. I know rain is necessary for us to survive and yada yada, but, honestly I hate it. I don’t find rain romantic or delightfully melacholy, I find it inconvenient and annoying (related: I enjoy chasing teenagers off my lawn by shaking my cane at them). Anyway, below is a list of a few events that would be good options for getting out of the rain this weekend.

As always, if you know of an event coming up that you think your fellow TNG readers might enjoy, send the details to events@thenewgay.net and/or leave them in the comments below and we’ll get them on the calendar ASAP. Also, you can always find out about all kinds of DC-related events and stories by following the TNGDC Twitter feed.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so
    people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

    grasp so much about this, like you wrote the e-book in it or

    however instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll certainly be back.
