Being Social: the Weekend of 09.30.11

30 Sep

October is upon us! Be sure to wear layers if you go out this weekend: it’s meant to be chilly!  Warm up at any Oktoberfest celebration you choose (more here), and/or attend some of the below events:

Friday

11am-11pm
In a continuing tradition, Truckeroo will again be held at the Navy Yard.  Expect a ton of good food, live music and beer.  Free admission!

7-10pm
Urban Evolutiion is hosting another Sasuke (Ninja Warrior) themed nights.  $25 will let you join in the parkour event madness.
730pm
At Kings Dominion, there will be an attempt to break the world record of ‘Largest Gathering of Vampires’.  It’s a bit early for Hallowe’en, but I won’t complain!  Costumes required, and have to follow strict wardrobe guidelines, but they also provide a discount admission of $19.99.
8pm-3am
Get ready for Naughty School Girl Night at Town Tavern in Adams Morgan! This is their third year of hosting such a saucy event, and it shows so signs of  stopping! Plus there’s an open bar for $10 from 10-11pm if you dress up.  Too bad I already have plans!

Saturday
10am-5pm
Crafty Bastards is being held in Adams Morgan. This is a giant bazaar/festival of crafts and shinies. Bring cash. Lots of cash.  Also the DC ‘state’ fair will be held in conjunction with this event, as Hurricane Irene caused them to delay their festivities.
12-5pm
The Royal Thai Embassy in Georgetown is hosting a free Thai Village Experience.  There will be THAI MASSAGES AND FOOD, as well as music and cultural exhibits. (via The District)
11am-4pm
The Taste of Bethesda will provide even more great deals on awesome food. Tickets are sold in bundles for $5 and are used in various quantities to try said food.
 
6pm
OMG MADDEN12 TOURNAMENT! The Town Tavern is full of awesome this weekend, isn’t it? First schoolgirls, now geek football games? FTW, I say! (via Metromix)
Sunday
10am-5pm
Takoma Park is having a street festival, but it will have to square off with the next entry:
11am-7pm
The Turkish Festival returns to DC, proffering more food, music, vendors and cultural exhibits. 
4pm
Michael Moore will be at comes to Sixth and I Historic Synagogue (600 I Street NW) to discuss his book Here Comes Trouble: Stories from My Life.  Tickets
