With autumn officially upon us, we celebrated with our Fall Brunch Fest at Long View Gallery in partnership with Heirloom catering. It was a beautiful day of all things fall, with spiked apple cider cocktails, seasonal frittata, gilded pumpkins, live country tunes, and fall fashions. We’re so sad it’s over but looking to the week ahead and a packed Washington social agenda.
Sweater weather gets started with a send-out rooftop party, a last-minute luau, a monumental music festival, and more. Pencil in your plans with the details below.
Additionally, in case you’ve been living under a rock, the Pope is coming. The beloved religious leader is bringing excitement, addressing Congress on global warming (!), and causing a lot of road closures.
We suggest working remotely and pre-ordering your grocery deliveries, cases of rosé, and/or JRINK juicery, our favorite breakfast and snack treat, which happens to deliver.
Here’s your agenda.
Cure your case of the Mondays with a sneak peek of Fare Well from the owners of Sticky Fingers Sweets & Eats.
