 Now onto this week:

MOVIES!

Outdoor movie season is almost over and it makes us very sad! There’s only one this week! One! That’s not enough! Luckily there are some quality choices inside, for free, at the National Gallery of Art.

  • Sunday, September 8th – When Harry Met Sally @ Lake Anne Plaza Summer Film Festival – If you’ve ever needed a reason to go to Reston, here it is. One of the best modern romantic comedies proves, once and for all, that true love conquers all. And that it’s totally acceptable for an OK looking guy to end up with an amazing looking Meg Ryan who happens to be 13-years his junior. It-Only-Took-Three-Months-Twelve-Years-and-Three-Months-when-harry-met-sally-23211606-500-278
  • PLUS: Keep an eye on our film section for ongoing MOVIE TICKET AND PREVIEW GIVEAWAYS. We do one or two a week on average.

FOOD:

CULTURE:

  • Saturday, September 7th – The DC MEETMarket, an event that sounds like a cattle call for all singles that hear can hear the ringing of a dinner bell, is actually an excellent event that includes 40 local vendors selling their local wares, is dog friendly and features a performance by the local kids band Metal Panda. You should go just because there’s a kids band with the name Metal Panda.
  • Check our agenda for a plethora of art exhibitions open throughout the month!
