This Weekend: Is It Restaurant Week Yet?
Here's a few things to do as you prepare to feast on a budget in Bethesda's restaurants next week.
Welcome to the weekend! No, Bethesda-Chevy Chase Restaurant Week doesn't start until Monday, but here's a few things to do in the meantime.
If you’re a tea fan – this frigid weather might make a hot cup of tea all the more appealing – check out Zen Tara Tea’s first anniversary celebration Friday beginning at 7p.m. and lasting throughout the evening. The popular tea shop is celebrating one year in downtown Bethesda with a winter party and a special live music performance.
There’s an ongoing exhibit happening at the Waverly Street Gallery that you can check out this Saturday between noon and 6p.m. Local artist Eric Harley Schweitzer will have abstract figurative works on display at the gallery through Feb. 5. More information about the artist is available at www.schweitzersart.com.
The “Slices of Life” photography exhibit is still ongoing at the Dennis and Phillip Ratner museum this weekend. So if recent media reports on the unfortunate sculpture thefts made for the first time you’ve heard of the museum, stop by, check it out, and show some support for a local artistic mainstay. The exhibit will be open Sunday from 10a.m. to 4:30p.m.
If you’re heading out and about on the Metro this weekend, a word to the wise – WMATA is advising that Red Line riders should add 20 minutes to their commute time. Trains will be single-tracking between Friendship Heights and Medical Center as crews conduct maintenance repairs and make upgrades to improve cell phone coverage.
So that's the bad news, but the good news is that beginning Monday, you'll get to chow down in some of Bethesda's best restaurants for bargain prices. We want to know where you'll be eating, so email us at email@example.com, tweet us or find us on Facebook.
Don’t forget to upload goings-on this weekend to our events calendar. Stay warm out there.
