Happy (almost) Thanksgiving! Though plenty of people have left the D.C. area for Thanksgiving, there are plenty more spending the holiday right here. Those of us still in the Capitol Hill area will get a longer and quieter weekend than normal. IN what is perhaps a gift to those who stick around for the holiday weekend, Metro has no track work planned this weekend.
Temperatures on Thanksgiving Day are expected to be in the high 50s with partly cloudy skies. The weather will be a little warmer on Friday, but a cold front on Saturday will bring cloudy skies, rain showers and highs in the 50s for the weekend.
We’ll be off until Monday or when the leftovers run out, whichever comes first. In the meantime, here’s everything you need to know to make the most of the next four days on Capitol Hill:
- Trash usually collected on Thursday will be collected Friday and Friday collection will be pushed to Saturday
- Recreation Centers and other Department of Parks and Recreation facilities will be closed Thursday and Friday
- Parking meters will not be enforced
- Parking restrictions along the H Street NE streetcar will still be enforced
- Metro trains will operate on Sunday schedules Thursday and resume normal service Friday
- Maketto on H Street NE will hold a black Friday sale with everything 50% off from 6-9 a.m.
- DC Harvest on H Street NE will open for brunch on black Friday at 11 a.m.
Small Business Saturday
- Locally owned stores from H Street NE to Barracks Row will open for customers looking to support small businesses on Small Business Saturday
