December 15-16: Stay at Home Edition

December 15-16: Stay at Home Edition

Not as many market postings as last week, but I found two this weekend that are enticing enough to brave the predicted gross RISS (rain/ice/sleet/snow) mix expected. Metro will have their de-icing trains ready to run.

Saturday, Dec. 15

Holiday Booty Market
Noon-6 p.m.
National City Christian Church
Hilda's Giftshop on the lower level
5 Thomas Circle NW

Christmas shopping for Crafty Bastards. For the independent spirit in your Christmas shopping list. Music by Jason Hutto of the Aquarium, snacks, and a children's activity table.

Holiday Health Fair
9 a.m.-5 p.m.
2121 Wisconsin Ave. NW

After a day of shopping and sleet relax with free Pilates classes, massages and personal training sessions at this high-end Georgetown spa/fitness studio.

Yoga and Pilates classes - 9am-3pm
20-minute personal training & 30-minute personal Pilates 2-6pm

Reservations are required for personal training or Pilates sessions: e-mail or call 202-965-2121 to hold your spot.

Sign up for group classes anytime after 8:30 a.m. on Dec. 15.

Seated massages, gift bags of skincare products samples and discounts on other fitness and spa packages. Snacks from Sushi-Ko, Ceviche, Curry Club and Whole Foods.

Sunday, December 16

Fresh Farm Market
1500 block of 20th St.
Between Massachusetts Ave. and Q St.
In the adjacent parking lot of PNC Bank.

Last Sunday to buy Holiday Trees from Little Scrub Ridge at market. Also the last Sunday to get Chris' crab cakes before Christmas!

Whether you want a Holiday Tree for your apartment or house Little Scrub Ridge have the tree for you.

If you haven't tasted Chris' crab cakes you're missing out on the best crab cakes in the District. All you have to do is pop them in the toaster oven and broil for 12-15 minutes and you have lunch or dinner.

Remember all events are free unless otherwise noted.

December 15-16

Last Chance

Freer & Sackler Shops Annual Shops Attic Sale
Arthur M. Sackler Gallery and Freer Gallery of Art
Freer Conference Room
1050 Independence Ave. SW

Merchandise Markdowns up to 80% off. Smithsonian membership cards are excepted for an additional 10% off purchase.

I'll put up what I bought here at a later post.

Stay at Home

For those who want to stay in this weekend stay warm and cozy with the hot chocolate from Kingsbury Chocolates or make Woodland Mushroom Fall Miso Stew with mushrooms from Woodland's Mushrooms at the Dupont Circle Fresh Farm market.
