We're Here for the Plunging Male V-Necks

Mr. Darcy looks at Elizabeth the same way we look at our Chipotle bowl. The Jane Austen Film Festival is back this summer at Dumbarton House (2715 Q St NW). Grab a blanket and enjoy some olden days love stories under the stars in Dumbarton's historic garden. The movie night series kicks off on Wednesday, July 6 with Emma, followed by Sense and Sensibility (7/13), Mansfield Park (7/20), and Pride and Prejudice (7/27). Set during the United Kingdom's Regency period, Jane Austen's stories can be used to better understand life in early DC during that same time - known in the U.S. as the Federal period. Refreshments and concessions - including wine and beer - will be available for purchase, and picnics are encouraged. Purchase your tickets now; the event regularly sells out! 

It's Time to Celebrate Our Independence

That was the punch line. Skip the Mall madness for a fireworks viewing party at the Rosewood Hotel's rooftop bar, CUT Above. Indulge in Chef Andrew Skala's family-style menu and a 375ml bottle of Krug Cuvée Champagne, with prime views overlooking the Kennedy Center and the Potomac River. Menu items include jalapeno cornbread, crab tartlets, slow cooked beef short ribs, lobster mac and cheese, watermelon sorbet, and strawberry rhubarb pie. If you'd prefer to watch the fireworks from the water, reserve a spot with Boating in DC and paddle a guided path from Key Bridge Boathouse or Thompson Boat Center to their designated viewing spot. Single or double kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddleboards are all available. For a more family-friendly daytime activity, join Tudor Place on Saturday, July 2 from 11 am - 1 pm for Stars, Snacks & Stripes. Bring your own picnic and get an Independence Day-inspired mini-lesson and craft bundle. Or stick to the red, white and blue in your wardrobe and head to UpWest (3110 M St NW) and take 25% off your entire purchase through July 5. 

Not Pictured: Small Step Ladder 

You'll have to go to one of the games to find out if the players have feet. This summer marks the 40th year of the Nike Pro-City Jabbo Kenner League, created by the legendary, late Georgetown University basketball coach John Thompson. Local high school, college and professional players come together in the off-season and play in a team-oriented atmosphere - providing fans with a unique chance to see these players in action. Over the years, the Kenner League has featured some of the top local players in the area, including Patrick Ewing, Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Durant. Games begin this Saturday, July 2 at Georgetown University and will be played on weekend afternoons through August 7.

Concerned the Earrings Weigh About 7 Lbs.

Consider it strength training for your lobes. Join Kendra Scott (1249 Wisconsin Ave NW) from 4 pm - 6 pm on Wednesday, July 6 for Kendra Gives Back. That evening, 20% of proceeds will be donated to Friendship Place - a provider of housing services for people experiencing homelessness in the DC region. Shop Kendra Scott's newest summer collection, launching that day, and help support a good cause.
