Friday Night in DC: Sculpture, Jazz, and Free Drinks
Readers know that Jazz in the Sculpture Garden is one of my favorite DC summer activities. Every summer Friday from 5-8:30 through September 9th, the National Sculpture Garden plays host to a variety of jazz groups and styles. There is a (mostly) full bar on hand, but there is nothing like a glass of the sangria to ease into the weekend.
This summer, with temps seemingly in the upper 90's to low 100's every weekend, the weather has been much too hot to enjoy this DC summertime tradition. But with today's highs only forecasted to reach the upper 80's, why not give it a try?
Still not convinced? How about a free drink after the event? Head to the Redline in Penn Quarter (a short walk away) after the concert. Simply belly up to the bar, tell the bartender who performed at Jazz in the Garden, and enjoy a complimentary glass of champagne or draft beer.
Let the weekend begin!
