The Kite Festival, The Hunger Games, and Juicy Burgers: Weekend Picks in DC (March 30 – April 1st)

by · March 30, 2012

Burger from Black and Orange

This weekend will be an exciting one. The Final Four games for March Madness will be played, the National Cherry Blossom Festival will still be in full swing, and we’ve got some delicious food recommendations. We hope you get to explore some fun events and spend some quality time with friends and family.

Here are our weekend recommendations:

Grab a burger at Black and Orange

Black and Orange (a Womply merchant might we add!) won “Best Burger” in Washington City Paper’s Best of DC 2012 beating Five Guys Burgers & Fries and Ray’s Hell Burger. We’d like to give a big congrats to Black and Orange and encourage you to head over there and try one of its delicious burgers. Also, it wouldn’t hurt to enroll in Black and Orange’s loyalty cloud and get rewarded for eating those tasty burgers (hint hint).

Go to the National Cherry Blossom Festival’s Kite Festival

“Let’s go fly a kite” just like Mary Poppins would want us to. Join kite makers and skilled kite flyers from all over the United States at this event on Saturday. There will also  be demonstrations and competitions such as a Kite Maker Competition (for adults and youth) as well as a Hot Tricks Showdown. You can also bring your own kites and fly them with your family. The event will be held at the grounds of the Washington Monument from 10:30am to 4:30pm tomorrow. For the full schedule and description of events, click here.

Watch The Hunger Games

If you are a die-hard Hunger Games fan, we’re sure you went to see the movie  when it came out last Friday. However, for those who haven’t seen the movie yet, the lines have slightly died down and the movie is still just as great. Head to the theaters and check out one of the most talked about movies of the month. To watch the trailer, click here.

Honorable Mention

Attend the Taste of the Nation Washington DC event

Although this event isn’t technically happening during the weekend, we definitely want to share the details with you. On Monday, April 2nd, Washington’s top chefs will unite at this culinary benefit to end world hunger. This event is at the National Building Museum and will feature over 80 restaurants, chefs, and mixologists. Sample delicious dishes and cocktails for a wonderful cause. VIP tickets are $150 and general admission tickets are $95. This event has sold out for the last three years so hurry and get your tickets. For more information or to buy tickets, click here.
