Your Weekend Itinerary: Silver Spring Edition

September 13, 2018
Silver Spring: Downtown area of city in Maryland with shopping mall, restaurants and shops

All this is just minutes from your Silver Spring apartment!

Why pay extra to enjoy someone else’s local? Take advantage of cuisine, fitness and entertainment in your own town this September. A well-timed staycation is a great way to unwind and appreciate your home community in a whole new way. Read on for engaging events just steps away from your Silver Spring apartment.

 

Classic Entertainment

Delicious food, drinks all around and dance-worthy music are the foundational components of a good time. And you’ll find all three in abundance this month in Silver Spring. September 14 is BYOcup at the Downtown Silver Spring Beer Garden. Pick up a specially marked cup and get half-price beer at participating restaurants! And, on September 14 and 28, you can attend the TGIF Downtown Street Party from 6:30-8:30 p.m. for sangria and classic rock. Nando’s also hosts its own Saturday Night Concert Series from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Fountain Plaza Stage. You’ll hear top 40 hits, rock and blues on September 15, 22 and 29, respectively.

 

On Stage and Film

The Highwood Theater is hosting a weekly improv comedy night this September. Attend any Friday at 8 p.m. or come by on the 22nd at 7 p.m. to participate in a beer, wine and ice cream tasting, along with the usual laughs. The AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Club has something a little spicier in store. Tickets to their Latin American Film Festival are now on sale. Opening night is a 7:30 p.m. showing of “Birds of Passage” by Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra, and the festival runs through October 3.

 

Get Down

As in downward dog and dancing. You’ll have the opportunity to find your inner guru and your inner party person this month in Silver Spring. Every week until the end of September, there will be a free class at the Fountain Plaza from 7-7:45 p.m. Attend Zumba on Tuesday or yoga by

Grace Studios on Wednesday (or do both!). Can’t get enough stretch? Try out classes at Willow Street Yoga or Sky House Yoga; they’re only a few blocks away.
