1. Scott’s Run Nature Preserve is a great place to hike and spend time outdoors. Located in McLean just a few miles down the road from Great Falls Park, you can walk through the woods or follow a fire road flanked by a creek down to the river, where there is a lovely waterfall and fantastic Potomac views. If it’s crowded by the falls, just head the opposite way down the trail along the water for more secluded spots to hang out and enjoy a picnic.
2. Labyrinth, the game shop on Capitol Hill, is celebrating its 10th anniversary this week with online games, daily deals, and other fun stuff. Read a KFDC write-up about the store from just after it opened.
3. Even more to be excited about on Capitol Hill: The Safeway in southeast, now called the Beckert’s Park Safeway, reopens today! The Hill Rag offers a sneak peek, and a good thing to know is that it will be open 24/7.
4. Have you listened to The Michelle Obama Podcast yet? There are only a few episodes, but so far so good. This second one is a great listen and resonated in many ways. (And there’s a new one out today.)
