Weekend Roundup, March 10 – 13
By March 10, 2022 0 357•
Though spring hasn’t fully sprung and we’re setting our clocks back Sunday, this weekend still promises loads of delights. Check out a traditional German ritual at DC Brau, Tudor Place is reopened, ARTECHOUSE has a new digital exhibit and you can help Ukrainian refugees at a pop-up Saturday and Sunday.
Join DC Brau for Some Traditional German Bier-Machen
This Friday, beer lovers are invited to DC Brau for a traditional German ritual with Brewmaster Jeff Hancock. A hot poking stick (straight from a fire) is stuck into a pint of beer, caramelizing it and giving it a bit of a smoky taste. The event is free, begins at sunset and includes free tastings of the caramelized beer. Prost! More information here.
Come Back to Tudor Place Historic House and Garden
Tudor Place Historic House and Garden has reopened post-pandemic! They’re open Thursday through Sunday and advance registration is suggested for timed-entry tickets. Docent-led tours start every hour with the last one at 3 p.m. The garden is also open now (it looks like Sunday will be the better day for that!) There are 18,000+ objects to explore, including the biggest Washington Collection outside of Mount Vernon. More on Tudor Place can be found here.
Jump into Immersive Digital Art at ARTECHOUSE
Beginning tomorrow, “PIXELBLOOM” at ARTECHOUSE on Maryland Ave. SW opens. The event uses digital art to have visitors explore a virtual world of cherry blossoms brought to life. The digital and physical worlds are combined for a swirling, colorful and unique experience. See cherry blossoms in peak bloom as you’ve never taken them in before — in an 18-channel, 270-degree floor-to-wall surround projection boosted by a 22.5-channel spatialized audio system. More information on the exhibit can be found here.
Help Ukrainians with the Belly Full Pop-Up this Weekend
This Saturday and Sunday from 4-9 pm, a two-day charitable pizza party will be at 804 V St. NW in support of Ukrainian refugees. D.C’s top James Beard and Michelin star chefs are helping out in the effort, including Matt Adler (Caruso’s Grocery), Tiffany MacIsaac (Buttercream Bakeshop), John Sybert (Tail Up Goat and Reveler’s Hour) and more. For the whole list of chefs and more information, click here.
Enjoy Mozart’s Famous Romantic Comedy at the Kennedy Center
Opening this weekend, a cast of opera’s rising celebrities and international stars get together to perform Mozart’s “Cosî fan tutte.” The singers will be backed by the Washington National Opera Orchestra. Opening night is Saturday at 7 p.m. More information on the performances can be found here.
Shamrock Fest 2022 is this Weekend

American TV Personality Ross Mathews is in Town for a Drag Brunch
Ross Mathews, who appeared as “Ross the Intern” on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, is in D.C. Sunday for a “Dragtastic Bubbly Brunch” at the DC Improv. Mathews started hosting drag brunches around the country because he felt it’s exactly what the world needed, a reason to “come together and smile for a few hours.” Mathews has also appeared on Celebrity Fit Club, The Insider, Celebrity Big Brother and as a weekly panelist on Chelsea Lately.
