  • Don your best 90s attire for a 90’s themed party at the Heurich House (also known as the Brewmaster’s Castle) in DuPont on Saturday (1-4PM) to celebrate its 125th birthday. OMG it sounds so kute, read this blurb from their site: “We’ll have 90’s party favors, a birthday cake, and beer, and without a doubt we’ll be listening to the 1994 Top 40 on our boombox. We highly encourage you to dig out your 90’s threads – bring a lawn chair and a few friends.”  Find tickets here.
  • Catch a free outdoor movie at the National Harbor on Sunday— this weekend’s movie is Air Bud: World Cup (6PM).
  • Sunbathe and make some friends Sunday at the DNV Rooftop Pool Party at 14th St. ($10 cover gets you a canned bev).  Discounted entry if you register through Eventbrite, here.
