Five Things for Today: March 8, 2021



1. Happy International Women’s Day! There are some great ways to celebrate today — and everyday, for that matter. Visit the just reopened National Museum of Women in the Arts, go to a park named for a woman history-maker, tour old fire call boxes commemorating notable women, shop female-owned businesses, or enjoy food from women-owned restaurants,


2. Frying Pan Farm Park in Herndon, VA, is always a hit with little ones.  They can visit animals, play on kid-sized tractors and playgrounds, and much more as they get a glimpse of 20th century farm life. The park is open daily from dawn to dusk, the farm is open 9am – 5pm. Admission is free, though there may be a fee for some activities. (PS: Find more places to hang outside on this nice day!)


3. Want to savor exclusive dishes from some of DC’s best restaurants while helping support them?  The  Summerlong Supper Club is a 100% charitable dinner program designed to do one — make sure our favorite restaurants are still here come summer. It works like this:  From April 6 to May 13, you receive one dinner per week from a different restaurant every week, for a total of six dinners over six weeks. Each dinner is priced at $60 for a 3-course meal and feeds one person (app, main, dessert) – tip included, sales tax not included.  You can purchase all meals up front, or pay for them on a weekly basis (though you must commit to all six weeks), and there is a $7 delivery charge.  Memberships are open for purchase until April 4.


4.  In case you missed it last night, here is a recap of the big interview.


5.  This is so great. (I hope Owen is paying attention! 😉)
