It should be another beautiful weekend in the DC area, and we are very excited! There are a number of fun events going on this weekend including Alexandria’s Food and Wine Festival. Food? Wine? Sunny weather? Pure bliss, in our opinion.
If you decide to take it easy this weekend, we definitely recommend the fresh and unique fruit salad we posted on Monday. It is a delicious dish for any occasion. You can whip up the salad in under 15 minutes and then bring it with you to the park, a friend’s house, or eat it on your porch outside and enjoy.
For fun events happening in the DC area, here are the Womply Team’s recommendations:
Hit up Alexandria’s Food and Wine Festival
This large community event held in Old Town Alexandria features great restaurants and wineries from all over Alexandria and Virginia. There will also be cooking demonstrations, activities for the little ones, and live entertainment. The festival runs from noon to 5pm and is free to attend, although you will need to purchase food and drink tickets if you are interested in any of the tastings. Grab the family and head to John Carlyle Square tomorrow for a fun day of events! For more information about the festival, click here.
Learn how to homebrew at Smith Commons
Tomorrow, the DC Homebrewers Club will be demonstrating how to brew an India Pale Ale (IPA) from start to finish. This event is the second installment of the DC Homebrewers Club’s educational all-grain brewing series. The Club will walk through the step-by-step process of brewing a delicious IPA and also talk about the chemistry behind making a tasty brew. There will be food and drink specials to enjoy as well. The event is from 1-7pm tomorrow and held on the back porch at Smith Commons. For more details about the event, click here.
Check out the great eats around the Washington National’s Stadium
We know, the Nat’s don’t play at home this weekend. However, we couldn’t help but include this list from Dining in DC after we saw it! Dining in DC has listed all of the great places (that don’t include overpriced peanuts and hot dogs) to dine at before and/or after a baseball game. We think they are great recommendations and think you should check out these venues, especially Station 4 and Justin’s Cafe, if you are ever in the area! To view the entire list, click here.
We hope everyone has a great weekend!
