Cupcakes, pies, boxing, music and more at H Street Festival this weekend!

hstreetfestivalIf you don’t have plans for Saturday afternoon yet, add this to your calendar:  H Street Festival is back and it sounds like it will be bigger and better than ever!  Among the many many things planned, Curbside Cupcakes (which will soon be delivering in DC) and Dangerously Delicious Pies (which will soon be opening on H Street) will both be debuting their tasty treats.

Other reasons to come:

  • Rock and Roll Hotel has a full line up of bands and a DJ
  • Palace of Wonders is reportedly putting on a family-friendly version of their burlesque show.  Maybe some of their sword swallowers will be walking around too?
  • The Pug is sponsoring a boxing ring with our local Nomis Gym and Babie Doll Productions.
  • The H Street Country Club will have piñatas in the alley next to their restaurant and mini-golf tournament inside.
  • More than 15 Art Cars will be on display
  • While Biergarten Haus (the new beer garden) won’t open for months, the owner is building a German beer garden in front of his under-construction restaurant at 1355 H.

That’s all just a taste of what you’ll find.  Lots of vendors and other entertainment will be filling up H Street NE between 10th and 14th Street.  Free shuttle bus service from Union Station and Chinatown will be available as well as free shuttles from Eastern Market (I’m waiting for more info on this).  There will also be free bike valet service available.  So come on down from noon-6pm!

H Street Festival and Brunch at The Pug

I will unfortunately not be able to go to this because I have to go out of town for yet another wedding, but I wanted to at least help promote it!

The Pug is going to start testing a brunch menu at this weekend’s H Street Festival. Read all about it at Frozen Tropics, and if you happen to make it, please send me your review!

And after brunch, go check out the festival! The annual H Street Festival includes music, performance stages, food, a moon bounce, face painting…and much more.

If you have yet to venture over the Atlas District, bump it up on your to-do list and try to make it there this weekend. While the neighborhood is still a little “rough” around the edges, the bars and restaurants that have opened have quickly become some of my favorites. Dr. Granville Moore’s has been holding a top spot in my list for quite some time now.
