Weekend Scene: Spring Break Edition
Enjoy a week full of art, music and drinks of your choice -- even if you aren’t on a tropical spring break trip.
If you weren’t lucky enough to get invited to a fraternity’s spring break filled with American flag bikinis, shot glasses attached to beaded necklaces and monotonous Top-40 hits drowning out the calming sound of a nearby ocean – have no fear, because there’s plenty to do in D.C. Enjoy a week full of art, music and praying for my safety right here in the district.
