Being Social: the Weekend of 3.9.12

10 Mar

Through May, the National Geographic Society will be hosting an exhibit that features all the stories they wrote that weren’t published!  See what most can’t, and learn about stuff like “Happy Hour at the Ochroma Tree.”. [wusa9]

Also, March 6 – April 15, Arlington Arts’ Signature Theatre is hosting a show called ‘Brother Russia: A World Premiere Rock Musical’.  Sounds awesome to me. Russian folk turned rock? Tickets are $70 and up, from what I could find.

Don't you want to cosplay as...a...meatball?

Happy MEATBALL DAY! Have specials:

Casa Nonna (1250 Connecticut Avenue NW) will give you all the pasta and meatballs you can eat along with a carafe of wine for $35.

Sonoma Wine Bar (223 Pennsylvania Avenue SE) has meatball specials all day.

Parties of six or more at Carmines (425 Seventh Street NW) will receive six free, grapefruit-sized meatballs just for showing up. HOT! [DCist]

Time to bike like a hipster again...



The Dandies & Quaintrelles are at it again, this time riding their old school victorian and/or steampunk bikes along the river Potomac to the “Crystal City Diamond Derby” event.  This time around, the dress is “urban — functional, contemporary and edgy”; meet up at 12th Street and Jefferson Drive SW.  It’s free this time, but I bet they still want you to register at their website.

Nerd Nite DC this month will discuss “Oscar Wilde, Science in the Wild, and the Stressed Brain” at DC9.  More information about the lectures can be found at their website, and tickets are $10.



DC is hosting their St. Patrick’s day parade!  This is always a good one – more joviality is expressed for St. Paddy’s than any petty national holiday. Check it out on Constitution Avenue – 7th to 17th Streets NW. []

Geek Look Ahead:

  • Video Games Live at Strathmore April 7: A live Orchestra performs geek music FTW!
  • T-mode, an anime and gaming convention, will be April 20-22.
