What You Should Do in DC This Weekend: Vol. 16

blog-logo-SMALL-300x297

Looking something to get into this weekend? We’ve got you covered!

Friday, May 1st:

Forecast is calling for rain, what’s better than a movie or a show to have fun inside on a rainy day?

For Film Buffs: Fly By Light traces the story of four DC teenagers as they embark on an 8-day journey in West Virginia. The documentary, coming back to town after showing at 12 international film festivals, premieres tonight at National Geographic’s Grosvenor Auditorium. $20, 7 PM.

Go see Dior & I, playing at Landmark E Street Cinema through May 7th. When’s the last time Anna Wintour attended your first big presentation at a new job? That’s the situation Raf Simons faced when he took over for the disgraced John Galliano at Christian Dior. This documentary’s director, Frédéric Tcheng, provides a window into the whirlwind that is turning ideas into garments, lingering on Simons’s otherwise stoic face in moments of triumph and breakdown. It’s a terrifically intimate look at a terrifically intimate process.

For BBQ & Country Music Lovers: Go grab some BBQ at Hill Country and check out If Birds Could Fly. This southwestern Virginia quartet that embraces its Appalachian sound through the warm, soulful tenor of lead singer Brittany Carter and the sweet acoustic melodies of guitarist Andrew Carter. If Birds Could Fly strips country music down to its folk roots, relying on raw power to bring its songs home. Free.

 The weather is supposed to be amazing the rest of the weekend, enjoy it outside with these awesome things to do!

Saturday, May 2nd:

For Lovers of the FUNK:  Grab some friends and hit U Street for the Funk Parade! A daylong collaborative celebration of the spirit of funk, which is alive in the music, art and performance of Washington, DC. It’s a day fair, participatory parade and evening music festival. It honors the city’s musical heritage and brings together its many communities under the spirit of funk, that connects us all. Noon til 10 pm

For Horse Races: Make the trip on a party bus to the VA Plains for a fun day of big hats and horse races at the Virginia Gold Cup!

For Culture: More than forty embassies in Washington—including Brazil, Korea, Morocco, and others—celebrate this year’s “Around the World Embassy Tour.” This free fest includes fashion, food, music, and art. 10 AM to 4 PM.

Sunday, May 3rd:

For Bloody Marys: If you love Bloody Marys and always wanted to try the best in Washington in one place, this event at Blind Whino is for you. Ten bars and restaurants participate in this vodka-soaked party, including Hank’s Oyster Bar, Pearl Dive Oyster Palace, the Source, Del Campo, among others. $50 bucks gets you unlimited Bloody Marys, plus barbecue and live music. 1 PM to 4 PM.

For Folk Music: Go hang out at the Georgetown Waterfront in the beautiful weather then head of to Gypsy Sally’s and check out classic & contemporary folk band Shenandoah Run. Doors: 4:30 pm / Show: 6:00 pm $15 Advance Tickets/ $20 Day of Show

For Water Babies: Get out on the water! Rent a kayak, canoe or stand-up paddle board at the Key Bridge Boathouse. Enjoy the sunshine and beautiful views from while you paddle around on the Potomac!

It’s Our Intern Kelsey’s Last Day! Check Out Her Goodbye Blog Post!

It’s hard to believe today is my last day as the marketing intern at DC Home Buzz; time flies! For the past four months, I’ve been working on many projects here from pitch writing, designing graphics, updating the website, crafting social media posts, sending email campaigns and more. I’ve learned a lot about creativity, promoting events, writing, PR and even a little about the real estate industry. It’s been great seeing the behind-the-scenes work that goes into marketing for a real estate company, and I’ve enjoyed working with the DC Home Buzz team. I will miss interning here!

Now, a little about me. My name is Kelsey and I’m a Minnesota native currently completing my junior year at American University studying Public Communication with minors in Marketing and Sociology. I participate in a few organizations on-campus, especially community service. This has been my fourth internship so far, and I will be interning again in PR/marketing this coming summer here in DC. When I’m not studying, interning or volunteering, I also enjoy traveling the world, scrapbooking, running and cooking.

Thanks again for a great semester, DC Home Buzz!

Confessions of a First Time Homebuyer: Vashti

IMG_0387

Check out what this recent homebuyer, Vashti, had to say about her experience with DC Home Buzz. Congratulations on your new home Vashti!

What was the moment you decided to find a new place?

The second I saw the apartment! I wasn’t looking to buy but I just fell in love with the place.

Why did you choose to live in the neighborhood you chose? 

I’ve been living in DC for almost seven years and have always loved the hustle and bustle of U Street. I travel to NYC for work a lot and being in this neighborhood (sometimes) reminds me of that.

What were some of the complications you encountered during your home search?

No complications! I had my eyes on the prize and DC Home Buzz made it a smooth process.

How did the DC Home Buzz team help you overcome these complications?

My realtor was always by my side; always available to answer questions or walk me through any part of the process I didn’t understand.

Did you purchase a fixer upper? Do you plan to do any renovations?

Not a fixer upper. Just a blank canvas for me to decorate (I’m really enjoying the process).

Anything you wish you knew before you started the process?

I wish I’d learned about this apartment sooner! But the timing was perfect. No complaints.

Anything else you’d like to add?

Meche is the best. *Drops the mic*
