field day art scouts!

You’ve got nothing to lose.

Field Day Happy Hour
Participate in three-legged races, human wheelbarrow, and other games while sipping drinks in celebration of the current Art Scouts exhibition. 
Why: Six cutting-edge local artists, including Mary Early and Zoe Charlton, invite genius up-and-comers (Jerry Kaba, Madeline Stillwell) to display their own standout paintings, drawings, and more.

Inside the Fridge of a DailyCandy Editor
Inspired by a San Fran exhibit, we decided to reveal the contents of our refrigerators. It’s like looking into our souls, er, stomachs.
Why: After mocking ours, please post a picture of yours.
When: Now.
Where: Online at facebook.com.

Gel Manicures
Nail it with CND’s new, formaldehyde-free Shellac polish/gel hybrid. It won’t chip, doesn’t require filling, dries instantly, and looks awesome.
Why: Because Twitter follower @IAmYolanda asked us to find the best gel mani that wasn’t miles outside the city. And we’re cool like that.

Where: For locations across the city, go to twitter.com/lobstertruckdc.

Patio Spit Roast
Get your fill of eats ($15-$18) like lamb, pork shoulder, turkey, or whatever’s fresh from the market that day, plus mashed or roasted potatoes.
