Being Social: the Weekend of 08.19.11

18 Aug
This weekend signifies the end of DC Restaurant Week and the beginning of Alexandria Restaurant Week! Keep trying new venues, and let me know what you find!
Bikers will be back in town to honor 9/11 victims.  Of course, that means that there will be road closures Friday afternoon.  Check WTOP for the latest and try to avoid (or watch) the 15 mile stretch of hog movement.

To continue DC Beer week, Rhode Island’s Trinity Brewhouse will be featured at the Capitol Longue.
Um.  How about a Balsamic vinegar tasting party? You must pre-register and pay $25 but who knows.  It sounds pretty crazy. (via WaPo)
Finally, the time of Hop Fu is upon us!  It’s free, and at the SI Freer Gallery.

Want Zombies? Survive Alexandria is back.  It’s a massive tag game, involving survival kits, parkour and, of course, the undead. (Apparently this year’s virus was spawned by Justin Bieber.)  It’s $25 and attendance does have a cap, so check it out now if you want to participate!* (via Metromix)
There will be a Cambodian Day festival at Ben Brenman park in Alexandria.  To be honest, I have no idea what Cambodia is all about, so it might be fun to get some exposure there.
Not that I like hip-hop, but the U Street corridor has had a lot of development, and a bar crawl down U Street may be the best way to find new haunts.  Admission is only $5 for a pass for six bar entries and food and drink specials.
Also, heads up! The MLK memorial is set to be dedicated next weekend, so the tourists will be en masse once again!  Events start Monday, and a full schedule can be found on dedicatethedream.org.

*If you want a longer race type of zombie encounter, I am toying with participating in Run For Your Lives, an obstacle race with zombies on October 22nd outside of Baltimore.  Let me know if youd like to go too!
