Saturday

UD - A Crash Course in DC Punk at a Library
HARDCORE

A Crash Course in DC Punk at a Library

Hanging out in a library: not very punk. Hanging out in a library with an exhibit devoted to the DC hardcore scene in the ’70s and ’80s: slightly more punk. You can breeze through fliers, posters and photos of bands like Fugazi and Minor Threat. The Man has no chance in here.

UD - Sci-Fi Burlesque and Vodka
COSMO

Sci-Fi Burlesque and Vodka

This just in: today is the 51st anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first human spaceflight. If you forgot to take the day off, no worries. Just head to Artisphere on Saturday for sci-fi-themed burlesque, live music, retro-futuristic art installations... and plenty of vodka. It’s what Yuri would have wanted.

411:

Apr 14, 8pm-2am, $25 ($30 at door), Artisphere, 1101 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA, 202-321-2878, tickets here 

Sunday

UD - A Treasure Trove of Summer Shirts
GETTING YOUR GOAT

A Treasure Trove of Summer Shirts

The local designer behind Wolf vs Goat is at it again, this time with a new website stocked with overdyed oxfords and tattersalls and short-sleeve “picnic” shirts. For your next boating trip, they’re rolling out a “sno-cone” shirt in pink and blue. Works well with ice cream, too.

New site launches Apr 15, Wolf vs Goat

UD - Power Lunching, Now with More Meatballs
ADOUR-ABLE

Power Lunching with More Meatballs

You can never have enough downtown lunch options. Especially ones that have a four-star chef coming up with things like ham-and-ricotta tarts, ceviche with popcorn and lamb meatballs. Your deals are always sealed over meatballs.
