1. Join the National Portrait Gallery this afternoon and evening for their annual Día de los Muertos event, a celebration of life, memory, identity, and culture. Taking place outside, the public is invited to remember loved ones and victims of COVID-19 — from 2-8pm, altars on the museum steps will give visitors a chance to contribute their own memories via artwork, photos, or other items. At 6:30pm, a two-hour live visual performance by MasPaz and Guache will be projected onto the museum facade. Masks and social distancing required. Admission is free.
2. If the cold, windy day has you seeking indoor places to play, check out recs for places that are especially little kid friendly.
3. Eater DC has a round-up of restaurants offering Election Day freebies and specials.
PS: Make a plan to vote if you haven’t already!
