The time has come people – October, the best month ever, at least in my mind – is coming to an end. You’ve got just one last chance to make the month count this weekend so get out there and enjoy it! Election Day is looming so for those not on the campaign trail, I’ve got a great weekend lineup for you! Bonus: Halloween is just a few days away and I have some ideas for where you can do your last minute shopping and where you can throw down!

  • Dinosaur, Jr.

    I’ve never seen this band live but you can never go wrong with a show at the Black Cat. It’s a sold out show but I’m sure there will be scalpers. Check it out!

  • Day of the Dead

    Head down to Little Miss Whiskey‘s Golden Dollar and check out this Day of the Dead party featuring US Royalty DJs. No cover but costumes encouraged.

  • Halloween shopping

    If you are at all like me, you take your Halloween costumes seriously. And, when I’m in a bind – ie, slacking on the shopping – I always hit Backstage for last minute costume finds; Target for cheap Halloween accessories; and Michael’s for fun DIY ideas.


    More Info
  • Yonder Mountain String Band (and Zombie Walk)

    Always a great time, these guys will be performing at the Fillmore in Silver Spring. The show promises lots of bluegrass grooves. Be sure to don a costume! OR, go early and check out the 8pm Zombie Walk in Silver Spring.

  • Halloween Zombie Fest

    If you’d rather stay local for your zombie fun, check out this event at the Fairgrounds. 6pm; $20.


    More Info
  • Marine Corps Marathon

    you may not be signed up for the annual race (if you are, kudos and good luck!), but that doesn’t mean you can’t join in on the fun. Cheer on a friend or just head down to the race to check out the booths. But, make you sure you grab a coffee because it starts early!

  • Pig Roast/NFL Viewing

    Head down to Biergarten Haus for the Redskins vs. Steelers game and get your fill of pig! Yum – there’s nothing like football and swine. Enjoy!
