Where & When: What to Do This Weekend
Comments () | Published July 16, 2009
Sunday, July 19: For those shopaholics feeling the credit crunch, the Capital Fringe Festival is here for you. Gather any clothes, books, and music you no longer need and head to the Trading Post (1013 Seventh St., NW) for the Free Store. At this community project dedicated to promoting recycling and reuse, you can trade your undesirables for anything you find more appealing. Think of it as a clothing swap among a vastly extended circle of friends. Open July 9 to 26, Wednesday through Friday 5 to 8, Saturday and Sunday 2 to 8. All clothing must be washed and in fair condition. E-mail with questions.

Hungry Cubs and Nats fans will want to head to the Bullpen (N and Half sts., SE, across from the main entrance to Nationals Park) before today’s big game. The park is featuring a Bud Light beer garden for the 21-and-over crowd, game tents for the little ones, live music, hot dogs and sausages on the grill, and food from local vendors such as Surfside, Rocklands, and Colonial Kettle Corn. Get in on the fun two hours before the 1:35 game time. For more information, click here.

Think you got moves in the pool? Head to the Capitol Skyline Hotel pool at 6 PM on Sunday to watch one of Washington’s only synchronized-swimming competitions. Afterward, head down to the lounge to watch experimental videos presented by Conner Contemporary Art. Admission is free.
