Thanks to the good folks as the Washington Post, I share with some of the activities that will hopefully spare you some cash to hold onto while we wait it out.
Drinks anyone? - Happy Hour specials to drown your sorrows are everywhere. Please see the Going Out Guide
Well if your a Federal Worker and need ideas on what to do with your free time other than clean out that attic and do landscaping, check out Free Time,
Are you missing the Smithsonian, check out alternatives in the metro area, at: Smithsonian Closed?
If you have kids, the Washington Post has covered as well with Fun With Kids Going Out Guide.
Well I hope these suggestions will preserve your sanity if your a Federal employee, contractor, or anyone else in the Metro DC area who has to wait the partisan budget war out…personally I’m starting with my first choice and making my way down the list.
PS: I also hear Z burgers is giving away free burgers everyday as well so check out their website for info. Also make sure to show your Federal ID for discounts.
