It’s the same thing every weekend: movie in a friend’s basement on Friday, then napping all-day Saturday. Finally, driving around with nothing to do on Saturday night, and then the weekend’s over and it’s time to start the homework. You don’t need to get new friends, but you need something different to do. Not to worry, Lasso Online has got you covered. This upcoming weekend, April 5-7 could be the first of many exciting ones.
Located on 14th Street NW, D.C., three blocks from the U Street/ Cardozo Metro Station is the dive concert venue, The Black Cat. This tiny venue is the spot to find underground indie artists playing in D.C. Many concert tickets are less than 20 dollars, making it cheaper than 9:30 Club tickets. Also, many of the shows are for all ages, unlike the State Theater in Falls Church. The artists and bands may not be as well known, but that does not mean the shows won’t be good.
This Friday, April 5, Darwin Deez with Caged Animals and Me and This is Army is playing. Never heard of them? Make a Friday night more exciting by going out on a limb and checking them out, doors open at 9 p.m. Or, have a bumping 90’s evening on Saturday, April 6 and go to the Moon/Bounce Dancing Affair. Groove to house, 90’s pop, and hip-hop with your friends. This event starts at 10 p.m, make sure to plan accordingly around your curfew.
If the club and concert scene isn’t what you’re into, what better to do than act like a tourist for the day and explore? The National Cherry Blossom Festival is in full swing, peak bloom is this weekend April 3-6. Stroll the edges of the Tidal Basin with your significant other or friends and gaze up at the beautiful blossoms. The weather this Saturday and Sunday is expected to be in the upper 50s and low 60s and sunny. So grab that Metro ticket and camera, and take a trip to see the Cherry Blossoms. They won’t be around for much longer.
On Saturday afternoon try the many tastes of India at Haandi’s lunch buffet. The buffet is set up with different curries and other dishes to sample and experiment with flavor. Located in the Falls Plaza on Broad Street is this little cozy restaurant. Gorge yourself with delicious Indian cuisine and naan bread while enjoying the company of friends and family. Many of the entrees are less than 20 dollars, so this delicious food is relatively cheap and easily accessible.
Use these Lasso tips to make this weekend something special and exciting by trying new things, but without breaking the bank.
