Bring On the Meat 

We got game. Georgetown Butcher opened this week at 3210 Grace Street in the former Neopol Savory Smokery space. The butcher shop is specializing in local, humanely raised meats in addition to luxury products such as wagyu and wild game, plus dry-aged meats, fresh seafood, produce, cheese, and more. Butcher Wendell Allsbrook, who has been in the business more than 15 years, will also take special orders. In addition to their own products, Georgetown Butcher has also partnered with Neopol Savory Smokery to continue to sell their smoked seafood and sandwiches, so fear not - that salmon BLT isn't going anywhere.

Skeeballs to the Wall

In uncertain times, take comfort in activities that remind you of childhood. Like frantically trying to hit that 100 hole with one skeeball left, 'cause you're still 4,000 tickets away from a Chuck E. Cheese lava lamp. Simpler times, indeed. Fortunately, now you can blow off some very real adult stress and register for Church Hall's new skeeball league on Wednesdays from 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm, April 8 through May 20. All skill levels are welcome to join (is there more than one skeeball skill level?), and evening specials include a happy hour beer for $1 with the purchase of a burger, liters of Narragansett, and several fruit pulp flavors of Truly. Run by DC Fray, the league accepts free agents, groups, and full teams. Registration closes March 31.

It She  

RBG, as we all want her: Safe in a frame, behind glass. Shop Made in DC is re-opening tonight at 1533 Wisconsin Ave NW with a party from 6 pm - 8 pm to celebrate its new space, and launch the Georgetown collection of the SHE DC show. For the month of March, Shop Made in DC is showcasing artwork from 100 women of various backgrounds, ethnicities, neighborhoods and mediums, with 50 of the pieces in the Georgetown store - including very cool prints of our female heroes. RSVP here! For a behind-the-scenes look at Shop Made in DC, check out our feature on one of the women behind the changing face of retail - founder Stacey Price.

I'm Sorry You Feel That Way

This month, Washington Printmakers Gallery is hosting A Matter of Interpretation - otherwise known as "every marital fight." The show offers visitors a chance to see differing artistic visions in one exhibit, with an entire gallery of “mini-solos” presented by eight artists. Join them March 14 from 4 pm - 6 pm for a special artist reception, and get insight into their ways of interpreting the world through their works, which present a striking breadth of technology as well as visual vocabulary. Some printmakers use tools and methods that are hundreds of years old, while others print using modern tools and materials. Some artists use digital photography and printing techniques only recently available; while one artist creates digital images entirely on a computer. Featured artists include Marie De Amicis, Robert Hunter, Nina Muys, Caroline Pomponio, Marta Sanchez, Deborah Schindler, Helga Thomson, and Sandra Chen Weinstein. Check out their work through March 29.

Stay Tuned for Leg & Foot Reveal 

If this picture is any indication of sunglass trends, several face shapes have a troubling year ahead. For the good, the questionable, and the "never gonna happen on my body," join LiLi the First on Saturday, March 21, from 10 am - 6 pm for a spring fashion preview party. Enjoy bubbles, snacks, music, and fun fashion.

Slide Into Those DM's

We'll start with our own complimentary skin analysis: Your hands are dry as hell from all this sanitation, and you need some moisturizer. For a more detailed overview of your beauty needs, join Kiehl's on March 19 from 5 pm - 8 pm for their Insta Party - a night of fun, light refreshments, a complimentary skin analysis, limited special gift with purchase, and a professional Instagram pic with Mr. Bones.
