Let’s be honest—for the past several months, the 1400 block of R Street has been a mess. The high-traffic area popular for diners, drinkers and music-lovers was a cramped maze of cars and pedestrians during its facelift. The result? A much-smoother street, wider sidewalks and a block party. Celebrate R Street’s new look (and increased functionality) with a day of food, fun vendors and music by an impressive local lineup that includes La Noche Oskura, The Philharmonik and Rituals of Mine. 1409 R Street, facebook.com/Rstreetcorridor.
