Five Things for Today: November 2, 2020

Seen on a recent neighborhood walk


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.


4. Something to help ease election/covid/life stress:  25 Feel Good Films. (I also recommend one of our family favorites).


5. We are on the precipice…


PS:  Make a plan to vote if you haven’t already!

    Do you know if the Dia de los Muertos event tonight at 6:30pm at the National Portrait Gallery will be viewable online? If so, where?

      Hi Carrie – As far as I know, it will not be online, but you can try checking the NPG Facebook and IG pages, just in case they go live.
