WASHINGTON - Looking for a fun way to spend the day in Washington without breaking the bank? You are in luck!
Laura Hayes of Thrillist shared ten of her favorite fun, inexpensive activities to do in the city with fox5dc.com. Here they are:
1. Be very impressed by a man with a sword
Stop by the The St. Regis Washington, DC lobby at 6pm to take in their nightly champagne saber ritual. The stakes are high -- bottles can explode and send glass flying. Don’t try it home unless you like Jason Pierre-Paul’s new look.
2. Score a bourbon flight for $8
Dark liquor lovers rejoice: during The Pig’s happy hour (Monday-Thursday from 4-7pm), you can try a flight of four weekly-rotating bourbons for just $8.
3. Explore the incredible new Renwick
Fresh out of a mega-renovation, meet the (only) museum boasting a sign that says, “Pictures encouraged.” From enormous nests ripe for posing to a hot pink room covered in bugs so beautiful you’ll forget they’re bugs, this free museum has upped its game in a big way.
4. Rent a pair of wheels
5. Score a free salsa lesson
6. Catch an al fresco flick
Eventually, warmer weather will mean free outdoor movies in almost every neighborhood. You'll thank us in May for planting this seed.
7. Take a novelty shot
The $6 ice cream luge has not gone out of style at Pop’s SeaBar. Let a bartender pour amaro down the side of a mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwich because you deserve decadence like that.
8. Learn something new for free, thanks to Knowledge Commons
They offer free workshops in everything from 3D printing to photographing planes at Gravelly Point.
9. Do down dog without stretching your wallet
10. Laugh harder because the comedy is free
