1. Are you ready to celebrate the Year of the Dragon? A bunch of Lunar New Year events will be happening in DC over the next few weeks. A few to keep on your radar: The Lunar New Year Family Festival at the National Museum of Asian Art this Saturday (2/3), the Lunar New Year Family Festival at the National Postal Museum next Saturday (2/10), and the Lunar New Year Family Celebration at the American Art Museum also next Saturday. And a can’t-miss is the annual Chinese New Year Parade next Sunday (2/11).
2. If you’re looking for a unique show to see with teens, or something fun for a date night or evening out with friends, I highly recommend Mindplay at Arena Stage.
3. Levi and I just dined at the newly opened Pastis, and it was fantastic!
4. For anyone else in the throes of college apps and decisions right now (or anticipating it in the near future), this New York Magazine article will be an interesting read.
