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