Just the Bottle

One woman's adventure in beer, food, wine and spirits

Upcoming Adventures You Should Join

One reason I love living in the Washington, DC area is there is NEVER a shortage of events.  There are wine tastings, gallery openings, plays, and more.  There's an event for almost everyone of every price point including free.  It's up to you to decide what you find that you think is worth your money and you enjoy.

Some amazing events coming up that I would highly recommend attending are -

Art All Night

Art All Night does not go all night. But guess what?  Who cares?!  It goes until 3am with live music, .live art, interesting performances and more. One year I had my face painted. It takes place 7pm-3am on Saturday, September 26th.


Cinematery has taken place sporadically at Congressional Cemetery.  Congressional Cemetery is a fascinating cemetery with an interesting history.  On Saturday, September 26th they will be showing Alfred Hitchock's Pyscho at 7:30pm (doors open at 6:30pm).

Crafty Bastards

Crafty Bastards is a fun time supporting local people selling jewelry, art, and more. There's plenty of fun options at Union Market while there for drinking and eating.  Of course, there will be several delicious food trucks too.

Cochon Heritage BBQ

Cochon Heritage BBQ is part of the Cochon 555 experience.  It's a spectacular time sampling delicious piggy goodness and supporting a great cause.  You also get to meet local chefs competing against each other and having a great time doing so.

There's also great fun to be had celebrating fall with a corn maze (maybe a Taylor Swift corn maze?), pumpkin patch, apple picking, visiting a winery or hitting up the Maryland Renaissance Festival

Fall and winter are also the perfect time to re discover Washington, DC and all that it has to offer without tourists running into you with strollers.
