Life After Hours: April 13-15

Enjoy the warm weather and get outside of the AU bubble this weekend

Life After Hours: April 13-15

Catch the Nats game this Friday at Nationals Park to start the weekend off right.

Don’t let the fear of Jason Voorhees keep you inside all weekend! From the last few events of the Cherry Blossom Festival to (hopefully) some home-runs, there’s plenty to do in D.C.

Washington Nationals vs. Colorado Rockies

It should be a good day for baseball with no clouds and temperature in the 70s on Friday; there is no better time to get outside and watch the Nationals take on the Rockies. If you’re feeling superstitious, bring a mit to the game to catch fly balls. Start the season off right by supporting the D.C. home team!

Tickets start at $20.

Where: Nationals Park, 1500 S Capitol St SE

When: April 13, 7:05 p.m.

Metro: Green Line to Navy Yard-Ballpark Station

Newseum Nights: In Bloom

Want to get in the spirit of the season but feel like you have already done every cherry blossom themed event in the district? Head to the Newseum to be immersed in Japanese culture with a local twist. The cherry blossom festival will join in the festivities with attractions such as cherry blossom hair and makeup. Famed Austrian chef Wolfgang Puck presents fine Japanese cuisine complemented by an open bar throughout the night. Make sure to get your own custom haiku before you leave.

This event is 21+.

Where: Newseum, 555 Pennsylvania Ave NW

When: April 13, 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Metro: Red Line to Judiciary Square

Learn about a problem affecting more than 2.4 million Americans, featuring tastefully chosen design, and specially commissioned pieces. This event highlights the challenges of housing that poor people face and the widening gap of income inequality in America.
