Penn Quarter is officially becoming a shopping destination all its own. This weekend, a new two-story J.Crew store opens, and they've got a great opening-weekend promo, natch. (Penn Quarter Living)
Remember that freak summer storm a while back? Well, it seems something good has come of it. Port City Brewing Company is now brewing brand-new suds, modeled after the lager-turned-California-common beer that resulted from the ensuing power outage. The name? Derecho Common, of course. (DCist)
Crack open your piggy bank, because it's time to get your shop on: Tax-free weekend is here! Head to your fave Virginia shops, where all clothing and shoes under $100 can be purchased minus sales tax. If you're sticking to the District, then hit up Mid City Dog Days for a similar on-the-cheap experience. (Washingtonian)
