Here are #mytop5 things to do over this (recovery) weekend.

2. Fun with the Folk(s): The Smithsonian Folklife Festival continues through July 11, so be sure to check it out if you didn’t last weekend. And if you did, go for even more food, concerts, cooking classes, dance lessons and fine people. Among the intriguing events are Tango lessons at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Saturday and a “Just Desserts” seminar at 5 p.m. on Sunday. More sugar!

3. Try to be “Normal”: Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Next to Normal is back in town this weekend. I’ve heard nothing but raving good things about it, so even if you’re not much of a musical person, this might be a good one to try out. Oh, and it has rock music. Does that help?

5. So long, Shuttle: The final space shuttle launch is still scheduled for Friday, in spite of weather concerns, but don’t just watch it on TV for two minutes. Go to the Air and Space Museum, where you can spend hours upon hours learning about space exploration. Also, be sure to see the special exhibit of NASA-inspired art. By the end, you’ll probably be desperate to go to Space Camp.

So what are you doing this weekend? Leave us a comment below and share your plans.
