Dog Days of August Sidewalk Sale


If you haven't made it to U Street yet this summer, this weekend provides the perfect excuse: the Sixth Annual Dog Days of August Sidewalk Sale. The event features sales and special discounts at a host of home furnishings and accessories stores, including Home Rule, Go Mama Go, Zawadi and Goodwood; deals on clothing at Nana, Carbon and Pop; and discounted cupcakes at Cakelove.

In the past five years since the street fair started, this neighborhood has evolved from slightly sketchy to positively trendy, so there's plenty to explore. Even the weather promises to cooperate with this year's festivities, which begin Saturday (from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.) and end Sunday (11 a.m. to 5 p.m.).

Call me crazy, but from this entry I expected...something happening on the sidewalks, perhaps? Or at least signs? Or maybe...sales? I even thought sales would start at 10? Saturday morning at 10:30 I couldn't even find a store that was open, and once they were, not a lot of sales. On the plus side, Pop's 75%-off-summer-clothes sale rocked my world.
