Five Things for Today: August 8, 2020

Scene from a recent neighborhood walk


1. DC Dog Days, an annual sidewalk sale usually along the 14th & U corridors, has moved online and expanded this year. All weekend, you can shop and support retailers and restaurants all around the city. See which businesses are participating and access their websites to shop and order.

2. There will be all kinds of opportunities for sloppy fun at Mess Fest, an event running today and tomorrow at the Maryland Science Center, which is open again with extra safety measures. Hours at the MSC right now are Thursday – Sunday 10am – 5pm, and this weekend’s event runs 12-4pm both days. If you’re not up for going there, you can enjoy a virtual Mess Fest at home for free. Read more about the Baltimore locale in this KFDC post from past, pre-COVID times.

3. A KFDC reader let me know about a family-friendly place to savor some vino, let the kids run around outside, and enjoy the lovely scenery of Cordova, MD. Triple Creek Winery is open Saturday/Sunday 2-8pm and Thursday/Friday/Monday 4-8pm (Tuesday/Wednesday by appointment only). They have also been hosting drive-in movies and concerts on weekends, so check their events to see when they’re happening!

4. Doom scrolling and how to break the habit.
