The District of Columbia hosts several events this weekend, as you may have heard. This city of 600,000 will be the location of the Rally to Restore Sanity, the March to Restore Fear, and dozens of counter-protests, spin-off rallies, and after-parties for each.
That’s not all. We have The Marine Corps Marathon, Howard University Homecoming (including the Military Bowl), Washington International Horse Show, Red Bull Soundclash, sports events, and countless Day of the Dead events and Halloween parties (including Zombie Lurches and a drunken mob scene in Georgetown.).
In order to better accommodate the expected weekend millions, the Chain Bridge will be closed, the subway system will undergo repairs, and dozens of streets will be closed.
In short, just another DC weekend.
