August is the cruelest month. At least in DC, where 95% humidity is the norm. Fret not. We’ve pulled together a few activities that are either indoors or close to H2O so you can avoid turning into human jerky this week.

Tuesday August 11

Green Drinks at Gazuza (1629 Connecticut Ave.), 6:30-9:30. We recommend arriving early so you can hunker down at the indoor bar. In addition to the usual eco-minded mingling, Live Green will be selling their last round of raffle tickets and Dan Morrison, Executive Director of 1Well — an organization that partners socially and environmentally conscious individuals with small but critical projects for a community in need — is the guest speaker.

Thursday August 13

After 5 at the Phillips Collection. This week, enjoy jazz, art, and a “tasting of summer” courtesy of FRESHFARM markets.

All week

No swimming pool in the back yard? Then head to one of the District’s public pools for a free dip. Since this week is expected to be extra toasty, the DPR is extending hours at 13 outdoor swimming pools from 11 am to 9 pm, Mon-Wed. Visit the DC Department of Parks and Recreation for hours and locations.
