You have no shortage of spirit when it comes to the 'Skins. Which is exactly why you'll want to go behind the scenes at the final round of cheerleader auditions. Tonight, the finalists for the 2010-11 Redskins cheer squad will compete in the areas of appearance, dance performance and "photogenic ability." Which happens to be one of your areas of expertise.
Things to do for April 01, 2010
Pillow Fights, Cheerleaders and... Jerky
The weekend is in full bloom.
$10 Bar Deals at Art and Soul
In exchange for one Hamilton, the Capitol Hill hangout will provide you with one of seven small plates paired with an appropriate libation. Think pork rinds with a flight of three beers, ham-and-cheese biscuit with chardonnay or house-cured jerky with a Manhattan. Which go together like Joe Biden and the F-bomb.
It's supposed to hit 80 degrees on Saturday. You know what that means. Yep, it's pillow fighting season. You'll square off against the nearly 2,000 people expected on the west side of the Washington Monument, but the white-linen brawling may just spread near the World War II Memorial. We can't guarantee that medals will be awarded, but expect feats of valor.
Final Four Games Go 3-D
If you've ever wanted to see a 20-foot image of Coach K's head coming right at you (and who hasn't), now's your chance—you can catch both of Saturday's games in 3-D at this Fairfax theater. Be warned: there's no beer, but then again, if you can smuggle in your own Raisinets...
Power Breakfast at Blue Duck Tavern
Your power breakfasting gets a new venue, as the farm-to-table temple at the Park Hyatt begins serving morning feasts like crabmeat omelets and brioche French toast with sour cherry butter. Ask for a table on the outdoor patio—crabmeat omelets really should be enjoyed alfresco.
