Just because the season is winding down; however, it doesn’t mean our social lives are. We’re taking advantage of what’s left of warm weather events all week in Washington. At least we have a long Labor Day weekend to ease our end-of-summer pain. See where we’re savoring its last moments of the summer this week below.
