Do This: Valentine’s Day or Not to Valentine’s Day

Valentine Party

Ahh, Valentine’s Day. Some people like to go all in with their significant other, others tend to avoid this quasi-holiday.

I’m in the camp that it’s nothing special, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to do in DC, no matter your relationship status.

Some ideas to fit any mood.

Must Do Party
Beer

For the Love of Lambic @ The Sovereign

Aslin Beer tap takeover and FREE bluegrass @ Union Stage
