Here’s what’s going on in the area this week! I found a few events that I thought I would share with all of you. Happy hours, dance performances and so much more.
Here’s what’s going on this week in the DMV:
D.C. Arts Center Decathlon
Now through February 5
D.C. Arts Center
Instead of the javelin throw and long jumps, the D.C. Arts Center is hosting an art competition featuring local artists it has cleverly named the “Decathlon”. To make it even better, all of the finalists have turned out to be women! Yes, there are four women using 10 media, including textiles, photography, collage, sound, among others, to compete for the gold medal. And just when you thought it couldn’t get any better…it does! This event is absolutely FREE.
Capital Wine Festival: Frog’s Leap Winery
Wednesday February 1
At the Fairfax Hotel at Embassy Row, you can get a four-course dinner and have it matched with hand picked wines chosen specifically to make the most of your meal. A little on the pricier side ($125 per person), it’s always good to treat yourself and on this Hump Day Wednesday, why not? You only live once right…the Motto, you know?
And something for the entire family…
Baby Happy Hour
Wednesday February 1
The Wonderland Ballroom
I found this event to be so adorable. Moms and dads get the chance to get out of the house, but this time the kids are also invited. No need to search for a babysitter because The Wonderland Ballroom in NW, DC offers a family friendly happy hour this Wednesday from 5 – 8 pm.
Friday February 3
Shakespeare Theater Company- Harman Hall
This dance company pays homage to black American culture through performance this upcoming week in Chinatown. Audiences will be entertained with song and dance as the dancers put on a show filled with stepping, dancing and highlighting traditional African American spiritual songs. And you never know, you might learn something new about the origins and influence of black dance on American pop culture.
Don’t forget to tell them Free sent you. Make the most out of your week!
