Being Social: the Weekend of 12.09.11

9 Dec

Last weekend, the Dr. Seuss’s “Secrets of the Deep” Art Exhibition opened in Georgetown.  It’s free, and shows a bunch of Seuss’ personal art.  If you dig his stuff, check it out;it’ll be open until Christmas Eve!  Also this week, the National Zoo is getting glitzed up with lights!  There’s also ice skating and “Panda Claws”, a furry Santa!  Admission is free and the lights will be up until New Year’s.   And finally the Downtown Holiday Market at the Portrait Gallery is open!  It’s lined with awesome tent shops, and you can drop in to the Portrait Gallery or Spy Museum (or Gordon Biersh) while you’re there!
