Start your weekend with a cultural celebration of Peru on Friday. Then, sleep in on Saturday and stay up late for a brunch and darty-packed afternoon and evening. Round off the weekend by finding your zen with yoga at the National Building Museum.
Kaypi Peru, a festival celebrating the culture and heritage of Peru through art, will take place Friday at the Museum of the American Indian. The festival features music and dance performances, a craft market including ceramics, textiles and metalwork, film showings and Peruvian plates. Kaypi Peru, which means “This is Peru,” is held in coordination with the Embassy of Peru.
Museum of the American Indian, Independence Ave. SW, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Free.
Champagne Brunch and Day Party
Darty, but make it classy. The event-planning company Social Architects planned a mimosa-filled day party and brunch at Barcode D.C. Saturday. The menu includes a lineup of lunch and breakfast options like an omelet station, grits, shrimp, chicken wings and cajun talapia. For the drinkers who don’t want champagne, you can choose from three different mojito flavors, rum punch, sangria and margaritas. If you’re heading over to the party with a significant other and made a reservation ahead of time, you can also receive a free bottle of champagne to sip on outside or on the bar’s outdoor patio.
Barcode, 1101 17th St. NW, 2 to 10 p.m., $40. 21+
