Five Things To Do in Columbia Heights This Weekend

Looking for something to do this weekend in Columbia Heights? We have you covered!

The Artemis (3605 14th Street NW)

Don’t Stop Believin’…that karaoke night is back at the Artemis! Starting on Saturday, June 19th at 9:00pm, get ready to belt out some of your favorite tunes while enjoying local craft beers, wines, and cocktails. Singing not your style? The Artemis also hosts live comedy for free every Sunday at 8:00pm.

Thip Khao (3462 14th Street NW)

For over 15 months now, a portion of Thip Khao‘s dining room has remained empty and served as storage during the pandemic. With COVID-19 restrictions now loosened, however, the restaurant has set up every table again to serve their delicious family-style Laotian meals. With all of the funk, spice, and herbs from Chef Seng and Chef Boby’s home country, Thip Khao showcases what makes Lao cuisine and culture amazing.

GALA Hispanic Theatre (3333 14th Street NW)

Return to the joy of live theatre with the GALA Hispanic Theatre‘s performance of Ella es tango, an original music revue that highlights the contribution of women composers and singers to the beloved, but traditionally male-dominated genre. Presented in Spanish with English subtitles, view spectacular dancing from artists from Argentina and the U.S. on Saturday, June 19th at 8:00pm or Sunday, June 20th at 2:00pm.

Dragon’s Breath Yoga (3423 14th Street NW)

Find your inner peace this weekend with Dragon’s Breath Yoga‘s guest teacher Charlie Speller. Speller’s limited-time residency mixes her experiences as a Forrest Yoga guardian and a Poppy Perinatal teacher by bringing both play and curiosity into the classroom. Join her Forrest Yoga class for all levels, held on Saturday, June 19th at 10:30am, and learn how to carry a transformative experience off the mat and into your daily life.

Mi Cuba Café (1424 Park Road NW)

With their pan con lechon recently featured in The Washington Post’s article ‘The 25 best sandwiches in the D.C. area,’ Mi Cuba Café is one of the tastiest Cuban restaurants around. Offering authentic Cuban dishes and drinks, visit the café for some delicious sandwiches or try the weekend specials: aporreado de pollo on Saturday and vegetales salteados on Sunday.
