In this week's blog, we'll be listing out a few activities to look forward to this weekend and throughout the month November, including a Christmas Bazaar starting on the 10th!
Veteran's Day is November 11th
Washington.org put together an amazing piece of everything you can do to honor the Veteran's. Check out the list of events, and how local restaurants will honor those on November 11th and 12th this year.

Third Annual Dog Adoption Event + Fundraiser
If you're an animal lover like I am, you'll be interested in the third annual dog adoption event hosted by City Dogs Rescue and SR/A La Collection. In this unique adoption event and fundraiser at the SR/A La Collection art & antique gallery in Bethesda, you'll be able to meet adorable, loving, adoptable dogs, and participate in a silent auction and bake sale. 100% of the proceeds benefit City Dogs Rescue. This is an event for all ages! Join them on November 3rd from 12 to 2 pm at 7020 Wisconsin Ave in Chevy Chase!
Do you have a little one who's interested in learning more about creatures of the night? On Saturday, November 3rd, by clicking here you can register for a time to head out to Locust Grove Nature Center at 7777 Democracy Boulevard to learn all about our nocturnal neighbors! The night starts off with a live animal presentation and concludes with roasted marshmallows. Be prepared for a small night hike and other awesome activities at the nature center. Please remember to register in advance! This is to keep you and the animals safe during the live animal presentation.
I mentioned it to start out the blog but it's official ... the Annual Danish Christmas Bazaar is back at Saint Elizabeth's Church on Montrose Road this November 10th from 11 am to 3 pm! Sponsored by the Royal Danish Embassy, this annual bazaar is one of the largest and most sought after bazaars in the DC metro area. With tables sponsored by LEGO for the kids, and featuring booths with cooking demonstrations, jewelry, deli, restaurants, embroidery, and much, much more, there's something for the entire family.
