Washington, DC is one of those unique towns that can give perspective to the past, present and future. This weekend is no different. Take a look at our picks for things to do this weekend.

There’s no shortage of entertainment this weekend as it begins with the DC Beer Festival at the Nationals Park, where craft beers and baseball lovers unite. Closer to the heart of the city is a weekend filled with culinary entertainment and education at the MetroCooking DC’s Metropolitan Cooking and Entertaining Show in the Washington Convention Center. Get some inspiration for your holiday menus and spark some conversation with celebrities like Guy Fieri and Bobby Flay. Then work off all that food and drink at the Veterans Day 10k and Walk at West Potomac Park. The weather reports indicate a gorgeous autumn day for Sunday! And for those looking ahead into next week, The Concert of Valor at the National Mall is a must-see event whether on the couch or live on the grounds.
