Being Social: the Weekend of 12.30.11

30 Dec
Are you ready for 2012?  I’m definitely not, but I know that I won’t be as busy next year as I am currently.
I shouldn’t even have to mention that nearly every bar and restaurant will be having New Year’s parties and specials this week.  I’ll go over my favourites in this weekend’s review.  Also! Don’t be stupid enough to drink and drive.  Especially since DC offers free cab rides home on New Year’s Eve! 

No DD required!

 SoberRide is a free taxi ride program provided by the Washington Regional Alcohol Program (WRAP). Taxi rides are free, up to a $30 fare. The SoberRide  Number is (800) 200-TAXI (8294).

It’s your last chance this weekend to see the National Geographic Society’s exhibit on Animal Grossology.  If you need an excuse to stop eating holiday goodies, checking this out may be your best bet. (WaPo)

Apparently a type of dance music called Moombahton was invented in Washington, DC two years ago.  U Street Music Hall will host this Moombahton Massive X with its inventor Dave Nada and other star DJs. Tickets are $15. (TheDistrict)

Watch some sport! The Redskins and Wizards will both be in town, trying to eke out a win.

I hope it snows!!

January 2
The NHL Winter Classic will be on!  The game’s in Philly this year, and will host the Fliers and NY Rangers.
Also, the Washington Shakespeare Company ‘Avant Bard’ will be having another Gala night in Klingon in March at the Artisphere.  “Klingon II: The Wrath of (Michael) Kahn,” raises crucial funds to keep the theater going. I havent been able to find a date, nor tickets, but they do sell out fast. If you find them, please let me know!  (Rosslyn BID)
