Come Friday, it’s time to close your laptop for a week and enjoy a week of relaxation.
Kick off your spring break with a weekend of “Harry Potter,” vagina poetry and a day trip to Annapolis, Maryland, to enjoy beer and some fresh oysters.
‘Harry Potter’ at The Bullpen
Head to The Bullpen in Navy Yard this Friday to enjoy a socially distanced movie showing of “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” You and four to six friends will be seated at a picnic table with a view of the movie screen. Complimentary popcorn is served and drink specials are available for purchase. And if you’re feeling particularly magical, you can participate in a wizard-themed costume contest.

The Vagina Festival
What better way to celebrate Women’s History Month than by empowering yourself and other women at the Vagina Festival. The virtual evening aims to celebrate “vulva diversity, vagina honesty and body empowerment” through mediums, like storytelling and visual arts and poetry. All of the proceeds from the event will be donated to The Eve Appeal, an England-based gynecological cancer research center, and MRKH Connect, a foundation dedicated to helping women diagnosed with Mayer Rokitansky Kuster Hauser Syndrome, a reproductive-related syndrome.
Virtual. 1:30 p.m. EST. General Admission tickets are $5. Find more information here.

Nineteen local restaurants are participating in the festival as vendors to feature various oyster dishes and pairings. Each vendor will offer some variation of an oyster dish and beer.
