OMG It's An Earthquake!

Ok, it was kind of fun waking up at 5 a.m. this morning to the rumblings of a 3.7 earthquake.  (Well, maybe not the 5 a.m. part.)  If you can get over the trauma and sleep deprivation, here are some things happening in the DC area this weekend that might be fun to check out:

  • According to Metromix DC there are not one, but TWO Christmas in July parties this weekend.  The first is at the Eden rooftop at 1715 I Street, NW and the other on Union Street in Alexandria.  If you're looking for something a little less, um, Christmas-y, head over to the Palace of Wonders for the "Best Night of Your $!@# Life"
  • What better way to celebrate our first "big" earthquake in 30 years than with a shake?! The Washingtonian Best Bites Blog rounds up some of the best milkshakes in the area.  I like peppermint.  I'm just sayin'.
  • Still not enough to satisfy your sweet tooth?  Georgetown Cupcake has a treat for you.  In celebration of the premier of their new show on TLC tonight, they are offering free cupcakes all day today! Head on over to grab your cupcake crack and tune in to TLC at 10pm tonight.  (I'm not selling out because I work for a certain media company in Silver Spring, I am fairly reporting DC food news and this is relevant...and I like cupcakes.)
  • Want some great food from a DC landmark followed my an evening of mellow music? (Or the other way around if you want music first then munchies.) Hit up Ben's Chili Bowl then walk down to the 9:30 Club for the Jack Johnson show.  I'm a huge fan of their turkey burger and, of course, chili fries.  Oh- and coming soon, there will be an app for that.
  • If you can't get enough Top Chef mania, head over to We, The Pizza on Capitol Hill.  Show alum, Spike Mendolsohn's new joint offers traditional and cast iron pies as well as wings, subs, salads and Italian sodas.  It's opening was delayed until Monday, however, so you'll have to ride the weekend out.
