by Lanna Nguyen on Aug 30, 2016 in Roundups

The official end of summer in DC is right around the corner and we’ve got endless reasons to stay in the city and celebrate. Say goodbye to summer with disco brunch, bottomless mimosas, crab feasts, and Potomac Cruises.

(5 Cameron St., Alexandria; 703-739-6090)

The pop-up crab house is winding down its time at the former Crane & Turtle space in Petworth, with Labor Day Weekend being its last hurrah. Stop by before the doors officially close and enjoy all the seafood your heart desires: blue crabs, steamed clams, peel and eat shrimp, po’ boys, crab cakes and more. Pair your crustaceans with ice cold Natty Boh’s or Orange Crushes. (828 Upshur St., NW; 202-702-2628)
