Misty weather and myriad delays didn’t deter visitors to the opening of the Wharf yesterday, which drew huge crowds to the Southwest waterfront. Visitors enjoyed drinks by the fire pit outside Mike Isabella’s Requin and took in the free show from Kevin Bacon and brother Michael’s band The Bacon Brothers on the District Pier. As three long lines of concert-goers snaked along the waterfront, waiting for the sold-out Foo Fighters show at The Anthem, sunset fireworks took off over the Potomac.
