If you’re an American history buff, there’s nothing better than DC on George Washington’s birthday. Celebrate the first American president in true 18th Century style at the Gadsby’s Tavern Museum’s 1799 Birthnight Banquet and Ball. The function will feature English country dancing, live music, games, and a dessert spread. For the uninitiated, the Tavern, which was home to two of George Washington’s birthday celebrations back in the 18th century, will offer ballroom dancing classes in preparation for the highly popular event. Pack your costume, ready your stagecoach, and get ready for this classically Washingtonian event.
