Being Social: the Weekend of 05.20.11

20 May

May 21


The National Asian Heritage Festival – Fiesta Asia is a street fair celebrating all things Asia with food, vendors, music and demonstrations.  I’m sure there will be cosplay there, too, as there was a ton of cosplay at the Sakura Festival last month!


DC101 Chili Cook-Off 2011 at RFK Stadium.  If you can pony up the $35.00+ to get in, there will be tons of chili and bands (including Weezer and Papa Roach).


The Preakness is on Saturday!  I’m sure there are a few parties to choose from, but I only found one. If you know of any, please let me know!
DC Lottery’s Race 2 Riches Preakness Watch Party pick will be at the Redline in Penn Quarter (707 G St. NW). And for bonus party action, fancy hats mean cheap beer for you!  (I still need to get me a fancy hat @@)
And because some believe that the end of the world is Saturday at 6pm, there is a Rapture, why not party at Church and State from 9pm-2am and starting at 10pm there’s a $1 we-missed-the-Rapture party at 2213 14th St. NW (on the corner of 14th and Florida Ave.)
May 21-22
The 10th Annual Washington DC Dragon Boat Festival will be a massive dragon-fest at the Thompson Boat Center in Georgetown. Dragons are canceled due to high water 😦
May 22
In my backyard, the Taste of Arlington will be going on outside the Ballston Mall.  It’s free to get in, but you have to pay for food and drink tickets to partake.
Tickets=8 for $25
Cost=where (1Ticket EQ Food AND 2Tickets EQ Drink) ; ok, very rusty at IDL programming
