Weekend Festivals

Thanks to Christian and Nikolas for reminding us that there’s more to life than the anti-war/anti-capitalism/anti-you-name-it-we-hates-it rallies this weekend.

If you’re looking for something to do locally, there’s going to be a Green Festival (a joint project of Co-op America and Global Exchange) at the DC Convention Center with tickets at $15 a day and a metric tonne of exhibitors from DC Yoga to Marantha Nut Butters to the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. Sure, the smell of patchouli may be overwhelming from time to time, but it beats getting gassed by the cops when some anarchists try to break into Citibank.

Of course, if you’re more literary minded, the National Book Festival, put on by the Library of Congress, will be taking over the National Mall for the weekend. This year’s authors will include Buzz Aldrin, David Baldacci, Neil Gaiman, Giada de Laurentiis, R.L. Stine and a whole bushel of other authors across many genres.
