Weekend update: New trends for 2011

By Anne Kenderdine

FotoWeekDC, here at the Corcoran, will morph into a series of year-round exhibitions called FotoDC. (Denny Henry)

In today's Weekend section, we're looking ahead to a new year and how D.C. takes on new energy in fashion, nightlife, dining and the arts. Read about the trends we're predicting will continue into 2011 and take our poll about the ones you hope catch on.

New Year's Eve events dominate the calendar today, but there's plenty to do in the first days of January, too: see our picks for the best events this weekend.

Long before Lea Michele and Jane Lynch brought "Glee" to so many a cappella fans, there was the Yale Glee Club. Hear the group that launched the talent of Cole Porter when Yale University's 150-year-old chorus performs at Strathmore on Jan. 7.

In a city crowded with Neapolitan pizza options,
Pupatella is among the best. The Ballston restaurant, which started from a food cart, also serves homemade tiramisu and locally made gelato.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra gives tradition a whirl with "Salute to Vienna," a New Year's Day performance where waltzes take the spotlight.

Day-tripping types might only know Front Royal, Va., as the gateway to Skyline Drive. But before you hit the mountain next time, go antiquing in the quaint downtown.
