There are some great events going on this weekend, around U street and beyond. Check them out:

  • Did you make it out to ReadySetDC’s Activation 2719 in Columbia Heights over the winter? Well if you did or did not, they’re hosting another pop-up gallery, this time in the Shaw neighborhood, titled Activation 440 (at 440 Rhode Island Ave). They will have opening nights tonight (which is sold out!) and tomorrow. The event is free but you need to RSVP to attend. There will be a ton of artists showing, as well as DJs and a cash bar. If you can’t make it out this weekend, the exhibit will be open through the end of the month.
  • Nocturnal Vibe will be hosting its first Capitol Skyline Hotel Saturday afternoon pool parties. Nocturnal Vibe is the brainchild of Doug Van Sant, who writes about and takes photos on DC nightlife on a U Street Girl favorite blog, Urban Marinade. It will be $15 at the door and will include $8 drink specials and $5 beers all day long, including a Liquid Lounge cocktail for $5. Sounds like a good time!
