1. Olga, the mastermind behind Mango Tomato, will be demonstrating at CHOP market tomorrow, Friday, afternoon.
She will be making a Curry Butternut Squash soup , which I think will be a very good addition to the stock pile of cold weather recipes. So you better stop on by to have a taste and grab a copy for yourself.
2. Saturday is Crafty Bastards and this is one of my favorite events of the entire year! Local and some out of town crafters will be setting up shop in Adams Morgan to sell their wares from unique clothing and jewelry, kids' toys, accessories for your home, etc. It is a very cool craft fair and you should definitely come check it out between 10 am-5 pm.
Here is a link to the site if you would like to learn more about it: http://www.washingtoncitypaper.com/craftybastards/about/
3. Oktoberfest!!! We cannot forget about that, and it all month so you have plenty of time. Who cares if you're not German, everyone is allowed and should celebrate. It's just like Cinco De Mayo, even if you are not Mexican you know you will be drinking a very large margarita that night, so let's not pretend otherwise. So whip out your lederhosen and get your Prost on! There are way too many events and local places to name but I did do a fun little search for you that you can check out for ideas: http://www.washingtonpost.com/gog/search/oktoberfest%20.html
4. I just found this Youtube video and it seriously just made my evening and I hope it will bring a smile to your day as well.
Have a great weekend!!!
