Take a Ride on the Hippie Bus

Summer of Love, springtime of shopping, whatever

Where is the love? We never thought we'd be saying this, but it seems like it's at Macy's. (Go ahead, accuse us of being too materialistic to live. We'll wait.) Anyway, the Metro Center location -- 1201 G St. NW -- is hosting a Summer of Love party at 5:30 p.m. today. Cast off the bonds of your corporate and government jobs, people, and get all hippie-dippy right in the middle of downtown.

An in-store gallery features work by students at the Corcoran College of Art + Design, and updated hippie wear will adorn members of the Corcoran's 1869 Society. (Um, maybe they should be called the 1969 Society for tonight?)

Make a $100 purchase and you'll be handsomely rewarded with the opp to dress up in vintage '60s clothes and get your pic taken in whatever they mean when they say "our hippie photo booth." Our recommendation: When you're in there, don't inhale.
