The weekend is about to get real.

Thursday
Billy Reid, Minus 50%
SALE-ING

Billy Reid, Minus 50%

Fortunately for you, summer for the fashion industry doesn’t last as long as actual summer. Which is why Billy Reid’s already knocking up to 50% off polos, khakis, Italian-linen pants and soft cotton henleys.

Patriotic Burlesque on the W Rooftop
CALL OF DUTY

Patriotic Burlesque on the W Rooftop

And now, for some Memorial Day nostalgia. In the form of four highly accomplished disrobing dancers, who will take to the stage for two shows at the W’s rooftop lounge. A portion of the proceeds benefits returning troops. The whole thing benefits you.

Friday
An Asian-Inspired Night Market in SW
MARKET TIMING

An Asian-Inspired Night Market in SW

This Asian-night-market thing is catching on. Here’s one at the Southwest Waterfront. You’ll visit a beer garden. You’ll check out 30 local merchants. You’ll get food from Asian food trucks. You’ll see artists doing live painting. You’ll let a cigar roller... roll a cigar for you.

Every fourth Friday starting May 29, 4-9pm, Market SW, 4th St SW and M St SW, 202-215-6993

A Rooftop with Pork and Scarface Attire
MY LITTLE FRIEND

A Rooftop with Pork and Scarface Attire

Call it a Cochon 555 encore: Del Campo chef Victor Albisu is reprising his performance from the annual porky event on the restaurant’s rarely utilized rooftop. Suggested attire is Scarface casual, so wear your best Tony Montana ruffled shirt. You probably won’t care if you spill pork on it.

Saturday
Going All The River Wild in Maryland
DAM IT

Going All The River Wild in Maryland

This little excursion has you heading up to the Savage River in Western Maryland. You’ll get a life vest, a helmet, a wetsuit and a paddle. Meanwhile, some folks are opening the dam upstream. The result: five miles of continuous Class III to Class IV rapids. And a BBQ cookout after you survive it.
