BRUUUUUUCE!!!! That will be the cheer ringing throughout Nationals Park this Friday. (Note: This can easily be adapted to BRYYYYYCE, Nats fans. Take it under consideration.) Yes, Bruce Springsteen and his mighty E Street Band are in town and back to tirelessly rock the District, bringing with them an atmosphere that is part block party, part big-tent revival. The show is very much sold out (there are *cough* other ways of procuring tickets *cough*), but we have the essential guide for the thousands of you seeing the show. What’s the best way to get there? What songs will the Boss likely play and which ones would you like to hear him play? What have critics said about past shows? We have all of that and more.
Seeing Springsteen conquer Nationals Park is one of the 16 items on our list of the best things to do in D.C. this weekend. Here are other selected highlights:
The H Street neighborhood has changed quite a bit in its 10-year redevelopment, and its neighborhood festival this weekend is a great way to explore the eclectic restaurants and shops in the area. We have the perfect guide for navigating the festival, with a look at some of the new area eateries, our picks for the best parties and some of the best places for seeing art.
There will be plenty of fashion on H Street, too, as new looks from area designers are going to be on full display during a fashion show. It serves as the unofficial start to D.C. Fashion Week, a chance for D.C. designers and fashionistas to show their funky side.
Happy (almost) weekend, folks!
