At long last, the opportunity to ride a streetcar on H Street NE is here.

Mayor Muriel Bowser and District Department of Transportation Director Leif Dormsjo are set to officially launch streetcar service for the public Saturday morning.

Local businesses are offering specials and prizes in celebration of the District’s newest form of public transit. And if you visit a bar on the H Street corridor, there’s a streetcar-themed drinking game you can play.

For those of you who venture outside this weekend, heavy winter coats shouldn’t be necessary during the day. The temperature is expected to rise to the mid-40s Saturday and upper 5os Sunday, under sunny skies, according to The National Weather Service.
