OK, so shopping outside maaaay not be at the top of your list in this heat. Nonetheless, we would be totally, totally wrong if we didn't tell you about the Bethesda Row Sidewalk Sale this Friday and Saturday.
Bargains do not discriminate when it comes to weather, and shops such as Ginger, Le Creuset and Urban Chic offer big discounts. Urban Chic, for instance, will have $25, $50, $75 and $100 designer denim racks, and an extra 40 percent off all non-denim sale items. Sassanova will have 50 to 80 percent off select items.
Restaurants and sweet treat purveyors will be gettin ginto the act, too, with Georgetown Cupcake, Lebanese Taverna and Redwood on the list.
You can also get into the swing of things from the comfort of your own A/C by entering to win a $200 gift certificate online here. Your computer, however, will not dispense cupcakes.
