After a chilly week in DC, the temperatures are rising just in time for the weekend! Since you’ve been cooped up all week, we suggest you go out and take advantage of everything the DMV has to offer this pre-holiday weekend. The options are countless, so to make your decision making easier check out the list below.

DJ/producer Dillon Francis brings his massive headlining tour to DC this weekend. By now, dance fans know not to take Francis too seriously. With his cat-riddled photos and social media antics, his fame is as much to his sense of humor as his music. Whether your a fan of him or his beats, you should check out his show this Friday at Echostage.


You Drink. We Drive. | DC Craft Beer Festival

The Angelika pop-up theatre at Union Market is a cool spin on the classic dinner and a movie. While you watch a movie, grab one of the sharable pairings for two, named after films. “The French Connection” will get you a mini bottle of Bordeaux, rosemary-truffle popcorn, and blue cheese-walnut coins for $27. Or customize your own menu from a long list of beer, wine, and snacks.
