Let’s be real, it’s been a long week and last weekend was a little out of control between DC Mardi Gras and Super Bowl. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t get a little crazy while still having some R&R time. You’ll find the best of both worlds in our top picks for the weekend.

  • Carnival! Phillips After 5

    Art, music, food and Mardi Gras? This is a no-brainer. Plus, the Phillip’s Collection is pairing up with the Embassy of Brazil, so you know it’s gonna be fun.

  • Restaurant Week(end)

    It’s the last weekend to try that place you’ve been dying to go to but don’t want to drop a paycheck on just yet. Quick, pick up your phone though because reservations are a must. Trust us, any hostess will laugh you right out the door with her 2 hour wait if you don’t. You can spot FamousDC at Mintwood and a few others on this list.

    Watch or participate, whatever you’re comfortable with, but it’s not everyday you get to see hundreds of folks running around the Capitol in their underwear (we’re not talking about interns).

    This actually takes place next Saturday, but we wanted to included it as tickets appear to be going fast and rightfully so. Kick it with some of DC’s top notch chefs and drink a few beers along the way. We’ll be putting our culinary skills to the test at Belga Cafe and maybe a few others.
