The next big menswear designer could be right here in the District — surprised? Check out the newest duds from local designer Read Wall, and learn why this socially conscious cutie is a rising style star. (Washingtonian)
It's the weekend, so you've probably got a booze-heavy agenda on tap. But, before you head to your neighborhood watering hole, you might want to make sure it isn't on this list. (Complex)
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)
