Happy Daylight Savings everyone! I hope you’re all coping with the lost hour of sleep. I have always been happy to compromise a few zombie-like days for more daylight in the evenings. It seems DC has decided to celebrate the time change with our first real snow of the season.
I would normally complain about snow in mid March, but I actually kind of hope it happens. I mean, if it’s going to be this cold it might as well be snowy and pretty (as long as it doesn’t ruin the cherry blossoms). While we wait and see, here are a few things to take your mind off the weather this week.
Galley Foods Gives Back
To recognize the 6-year anniversary of the Syria conflict, Galley Foods will be sharing dishes inspired by traditional Syrian recipes — and encouraging customers to help feed Syrian families in need. You can show your support just by ordering from Galley and eating one of two delicious Syrian recipes – chicken Kabsa and vegetarian Mujadara. The D.C. area start-up will also be encouraging its customers to donate to WFP USA to help support the World Food Programme’s mission of feeding more than 5 million Syrians each month. Just $75 can feed a family of four for an entire month. The special dishes will be available all week, March 13th through 17th.
Whaley’s New Rosé Garden
Channel your inner Lisa Vanderpump (and warmer days ahead) and get excited about Whaley’s new Rosé Garden coming in April. The outdoor bar in Yards Park will offer river views, 10 different rosés, plus frozen drinks, high balls and ice-cold beer. The space will be designed by the geniuses behind Edit Lab at Streetsense, so you know it’s going to be dope. Expect tropical plants, deco white metal tables and pink striped umbrellas.
Cherry Blossom Festival
Despite the probable snowpocalypse, the Cherry Blossom Festival is slated to begin this Wednesday, March 15th. Check out the full lineup of events and cross your fingers that the snow doesn’t ruin everything.
