And just like that, it’s Memorial Day. Time flies when you’re drinking mimosas every weekend. There’s no time to waste–start enjoying sprummer (read: wacky spring and summer weather) in D.C. with our round-up of fun events this week.
Reminder: Tickets are going fast to Dine ‘n’ Dash on June 7! It’s the best way to experience the hottest restaurants in D.C. all in one night. We’ll be there ready to eat, drink, and dash! Check out our roundup of the best restaurants on the 14th Street stretch and Penn Quarter favorites. To purchase tickets, click here.
Join the fun for the 3rd Annual EdibleDC Magazine Eat/Drink Local! Your all-inclusive ticket gets you 15+ divine drinks and 15+ fabulous foods from the best bartenders and chefs across the DMV.

Grab happy hour at B Too tonight before you take in a show at Studio Theatre. The restaurant has a new, early happy hour deal: half-priced small plates, draft beer, wine, and specialty cocktails from 2:30-6:30 p.m. every weekday! We love their brunch and the famous Doffle, a Belgian doughnut waffle. So, ditch work early and head to 14th Street for carbs and cocktails. 1320 14th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Take in a show at Studio Theatre! Tonight’s show is The Father. It follows André, who is 80 years old and a man of his own mind. But things are getting strange: His trusted watch goes missing, reappears, and is lost again. His daughter’s stories don’t quite add up. His furniture is disappearing and there are strangers at his table. Purchase your tickets here. 1501 14th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Make your hump days even happier at Cyclone Anaya’s. Happy hour lasts from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. We are big fans of the bite sized appetizers such as the brisket quesadilla. We recommend the guiltless elderflower mojito–best mojito we’ve ever had! 2911 District Ave., Fairfax VA
Rooftop season is officially here and sipping a glass of rosé on a rooftop is one of the best ways to spend a Thursday evening in D.C. Come for the sunset over Georgetown at The Graham and stay through the night as you kickoff the season. Drinks will be flowing at the bar and tables are available for reservation. 1075 Thomas Jefferson St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Spend your late night with Logan Tavern for their bonus happy hour! From 9 p.m. until close from Sunday to Thursday, enjoy $6 small plates and drinks on 14th Street. We have our eyes on the grilled cheese, Brussels sprouts, and a glass of Rioja. Cheers! 1423 P St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Need a hostess gifts for Memorial Day weekend? We’ve got you covered. Head to Olivia Macaron and get your paws on their exclusive seasonal flavors. Try the mimosa which features a champagne-infused white chocolate ganache and orange zest. They also have a Mexican chocolate macaron, which has a bit of a kick. 3222 M St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Return to a simpler time of music, dancing, tasty treats, and savory libations. A chance to step back to the end of the First World War. Sprawled out before the magnificent towers of The National Cathedral, return to an older era of flapper dresses, boater hats, and the big band scores of the 1910s, 1920s, and 1930s. Two 11 piece orchestras will warm up your feet, dance performances, lessons, and contests by the Fidgety Feet, lawn games, two dance floors, photo sets, food and beverages–specialty alcoholic Prohibition cocktail bars, and much more await! Period attire strongly encouraged. 3101 Wisconsin Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Before brunch, head to MADabolic Arlington in Clarendon! Take advantage of their amazing $10 for ten consecutive days of class deal for new members only. It’s perfect to kick your body into hyper drive before a big event or bikini season. This high-intensity workout in the heart of Clarendon is perfect for the busy Bitch on the go who needs an efficient and kick ass workout before or after brunch. (We love these Virginia brunch spots: Fyve, Ambar, Mussel Bar, Palette 22, and Cheesetique.) Try out any of the morning classes before you hit brunch hard. 3100 Clarendon Blvd., Arlington, VA.
Join JBC Events for D.C.’s Hottest Memorial Day Eve party with the best views of D.C. from the rooftop of the W Hotel. Officially kick of Summer 2017 in style with music, live entertainment, and more. The theme is pink and white, so dress accordingly. 515 15th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
