Weekend Festivals: Day of the Dog, Bluegrass and Folk, Bonsai, and not one but TWO bonuses...

If your anti-rain dances work, and we get a break from this dreary drizzle...which isn't looking likely, unfortunately...this where I will and wanna be this weekend - with special Monday and Tuesday bonuses to start your week because WINE AND HISTORY and CHARTREUSE.

Saturday: First, FREE community yoga at the Kennedy Center, of course! 10:15-11:15am led by Ellen Devine in the Grand Foyer. Save the Date for June 24 when I will be teaching!
