Weekend Buzz: Late-Night Bars, Technology Detox, & Nerd Chic

1
We've been talking up the inauguration for quite some time (what will Michelle wear?), but here's the best development yet: Starting on Monday, over 150 District bars will be open until 4 a.m. for the festivities, so you can fit in all your late-night reveling, at your leisure. (Complex)
If you're having trouble getting into the inaugural spirit, maybe you just need to step into the mind — or at least the palate — of a former prez. With Dine Like A President Week, you can take complimentary tours of all the Georgetown haunts favored by first families of years past. (Georgetown BID)

Thanks to what we're guessing is a slightly hectic lifestyle, it can be easy to find yourself glued to technology — iPhone, iPad, laptop, whatever. But it doesn't have to be that way. One crazed reporter recently decided to find out what happened when he took a full day off from the Internet and the result was...totally amazing. #digitaldetox, anyone? (Washingtonian)
We've always had a thing for nerd chic, so plaid is right up our alley. But this amazing coat is anything but stuffy, and now we've got a serious style crush. (District Dress Up)
Plans are in motion to transform an underground space in Dupont Circle into an awesome center for art and design. And in the meantime, you can check out this ultra-creepy video tour of the lair. (Curbed)
