This Week in DC: June 5-11

Who can believe it’s already June?! Time flies when you’re sipping mimosas and kicking butt at MADabolic. Check out this week’s lineup of Bitch-approved fun in the District.


Here’s your chance to share in the passion for food and hospitality that Chef Todd Gray and Ellen Kassoff Gray created when they opened Equinox in 1999, making an exciting addition to Washington D.C.’s vibrant culinary community. Discover where Todd practiced his skills early on and the local chefs that he has shared his talent with before opening his own restaurant. Find out about the challenges of the early years, and how he and Ellen manage to stay current. Plus, get a chance for you to ask questions. Purchase tickets here. 818 Connecticut Ave N.W., Washington, D.C.


Stroll, sip, and sample your way through one of D.C.’s most vibrant neighborhoods tonight at the 5th Annual Taste of Adams Morgan, benefiting Mary’s Center. Bring your appetites because dozens of D.C.’s best restaurants are opening their doors and serving samples of their chef’s signature dishes. And it’s all for a good cause! Purchase tickets here. Adams Morgan 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.


It’s FINALLY time for Dine ‘n’ Dash! 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 of the night and our Penn Quarter favorites. To purchase tickets, click here.


Ice Cream Jubilee is welcoming summer with six new flavors for summer! Join them for an advance tasting of these flavors before they’re revealed to the general public. They’re shutting down the store for this private party.

Rochelle–a favorite group fitness and personal training instructor from SoulCycle and Kangoo Jumps, is taking the workout outside to teach a forty-five minute boot camp-style class. Meet at the The Loft at Lululemon in Georgetown to drop your bag, head out into Georgetown for an intense workout, then cool off back at the store with a crisp glass of rosé on the patio. RSVP here for this free class. 3265 M St. N.W., Washington, D.C.

Crack open a crisp Italian Peroni beer and let the sunshine in as you dance to rooftop views. The Rooftop at The Embassy Row Hotel will not keep calm this District summer.

Enjoy an authentic Italian dinner at Via Umbria tonight. This week’s menu features an Umbrian twist on authentic Roman cuisine.

The food and experience will transport your tastebuds to this sprawling, cosmopolitan city in Italy. 1525 Wisconsin Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.

The free Capitol Riverfront Friday Night Concert Series is back for its 7th season, this year back on the Yards Park boardwalk!

It’s time to rise and shine! Urbana is ready and waiting to ring in Pride. Perfectly situated at the start of the Capital Pride parade route, Urbana is hosting “Pride & Shine,” an all-day Pride party from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Brunch starts as soon as the doors open at 10 a.m. and Executive Chef Ethan McKee will make sure Pride celebrators maintain their stamina with an omelet station, charcuterie station, and pizza station. Passed apps will vary from smoked salmon flatbreads to spicy deviled eggs to sweet bite-sized French toast. Bartenders will have handcrafted cocktails, rainbow Jello shots, and Pride-themed Bellinis made specially for the day.


Head to brunch with a view today. We recommend Fiola Mare, Whaley’s, and POV.

Before brunch, head to MADabolic Arlington in Clarendon!
