Weekday Round Up, Intern & Capital Pride Edition

This week: Interns Rock! wristbands are available, DC gets extra gay, and museums let you drink in or around them.

PS – So posting’s light around here, but that doesn’t mean we’re not furiously bringing you up-to-date FoBo info. Check us out on the twitters @FoBoBlo!


  • The Smithsonian is hosting a Victorian garden party tonight, from 6-9 pm, at the Castle. Tickets are $40 (!!) for non-members, but they do graciously include on drink. [Details]
  • In the Golden Triangle, Sin Miedo, a salsa band, plays from 5:30-7:30 pm. Free! [Details]
  • Taste of Pride is happening now — participating restaurants will donate when you eat there.
  • Pick up your Interns Rock! wristband and get discounts for ‘Intern Appreciation Week.’ Try not to wear flipflops or a miniskirt to work that week, too. Discounts go from the 10th to the 19th. [Details]


  • The Textile Museum & the Pink Line Project are teaming up to host an Urban Picnic. Your editor will be there so be on the lookout for someone taking unflattering photos of strangers. And LAWN GAMES, y’all. [Details]
  • If you’d prefer your nature in-doors, check out the Freer Sackler’s Japanese flower arrangement class. $14.50. [Details]
  • Hudson Restaurant & Lounge is hosting their monthly networking event out on the patio. Complimentary hors┬ád’oeuvres


  • For Capital Pride weekend, Brightest Young Things is throwing another bash at the Newseum. I know the first couple events there weren’t too great, but the last one they hosted was pretty amazing — no crushing lines, but definitely epic DJing and dancing. And now it’s going to be extra gay!

  • Westend Bistro has cheap and delicious sounding BBQ, pulled pork, pretzels, etc. for their pop-up BBQ Friday lunches.
