5 Things To Do This Week In D.C.

If you haven't made a stop at Mount Pleasant boutique Nana yet, put it on your to-do list. The shop was recently named one of Washingtonian's "hidden gems," and is filled with sweet finds from up-and-coming designers. Today, they're playing host to local designer Kim Schalk, who will showcase her gorgeous spring collection from 1 to 5 p.m. (Nana)
We're loving the idea behind the Transformer's Collector's View series, in which they showcase the private collections of D.C.'s most avid art fiends for our viewing pleasure. This Thursday, they'll be setting up camp in the Forest Hills home of Cheryl Numark, who owns pieces from the likes of Michael Rovnar and Bernard Frize. We can't think of a better way to get inspired to start our own collection. (Transformer D.C.)
As you may know, we're all about a good DIY. But we'll be honest, our talent is really relegated to bracelets, tees, and the like — when it comes to home DIY, we're a wee bit clueless. Luckily, the bloggers behind Old Town Home are hosting a workshop on Thursday to help with all our home project needs. (Red Barn Mercantile)
Relive the mid-aughts and go see the punk-lite band Bowling For Soup tomorrow. We're pretty sure we still remember all the words to "1985" from our high school years. Tickets are only $15, so you'll get your money's worth even if the only song you only know is their breakout hit. (Jammin Java)
The vintage sellers behind Trash Cat Collective are holding their first pop-up shop of the season at Blind Dog Cafe next Sunday, and you can bring your own stuff to swap — or just browse their selection. Blind Dog will also offer their full menu to shoppers, so you can nosh while you search. (Facebook)
