Wintertime can be a time of hibernation and many complain, "There isn't anything to do" unless it involves being outside and cold. We compiled a list the must do events for any socialite in the D.C. area that are boredom busters, learning new skills or just plain adventurous. Yes, you can be adventurous without being cold.
- Escape Room. These are popping up all over the Washington, D.C. area and with good reason. Originating in Budapest, these live action games have come across the Atlantic to the East Coast (as well as West Coast), with two themes. The team of people (at least two) have a specific amount of time to escape from a locked room.
- Private Karaoke Room. In Annandale, there is one location called Cafe Muse (among others) where you can rent a private karaoke room by the hour. Enjoy a 60,000 song database along with food delivered- this is a great night out with friends.
- Muse Paintbar. Located in Annapolis, Gaithersburg, National Harbor in Maryland and as well as Gainesville, Fairfax in Virginia; this is a great idea which combines painting with a restaurant and bar experience.
- Comedy Clubs. People have a tendency to forget that Washington D.C. and Arlington have a lot of major comedian names that come through this area as a stop on their tours. Check out the D.C. Improv or the Arlington Drafthouse. Often times, they host special events such as happy hour trivia, murder mysteries, and classic movies.
- Phillips After 5. At the Phillips Collection, first Thursday of each month has a special after 5 event that features an artistic theme with live music, bar and food with entertainment.
- DC Drag Brunch. Who doesn't love music and a gorgeous queen? Every Saturday from 11 am-2 pm, there is an all you can eat brunch with live entertainment and mimosas served.
- Sangria Making. It may come across as a little pricey; however, it is worth the cost- as La Tasca (located in Alexandria, Chinatown and Arlington) offers a sangria making class including full tapas and open sangria bar.
- Rock Climbing. Earth Treks Inc. offers climbing classes (yes, novices welcome) in Virginia and Maryland. They can show you the foundation of safety skills and courses available for indoor climbing.
- Located in Loudoun, as seen on Little Women of L.A., come enjoy indoor skydiving. This creates the experience of a "simulation of true freefall conditions in a vertical wind tunnel."
