Being Social: The Weekend of Friday the 13th of May

12 May

I absolutely love Friday the 13th.  As a kid, I’d have slumber parties and watch horror movies with my friends.  Now, I just like to find a fun place to party.  Of course, I am having bad luck finding -any- Friday the 13th parties in DC this month, so if you know of any, please let me know!  Otherwise, here’s what’s going on this weekend in the District:

Weekends Starting May 7 through June 5th
10am – 5 pm
The Virginia Renaissance Faire! This started last weekend, and my apologies for not posting an update then. Tickets are $9 and it is hosted at a winery, so much imbibing should be had!
May 14th &15th
1pm both days
4th Annual Wine & Food Festival at the National Harbor, which will have over 150 different wines, beers, and spirits, as well as live music.  Tickets start at $35 per day; $65 for both days. Designated driver tickets are also available for just $25. You can buy tickets online here.
12 p.m. – 4 p.m on the 15th
The D.C. Taco Experiment, an amateur cook-off involving D.C.’s finest home chefs. Dishes will range from savory to sweet and will highlight the glory that is the taco. Best of all, anyone can compete and/or attend this event being held at The Rock and Roll Hotel! Tickets are $10 in advance, $15 at the door.
5pm Sundays and 8pm Mondays
Wii Nights at The Front Page – Ballston‘s back bar.  It’s free, but it’s on a first-come, first-served basis!  Unfortunately, it’s just the simple sports pack of  Wii bowling, golf, tennis and baseball.

    Thanks! Wasn’t aware of the food and wine part. I’ll have to add that to our list.

      You’re quite welcome. I’ll have to add your site to my blogroll… gotta flesh that page out soon.
