Kick off the Fall With a Staycation at the New Viceroy, Dining on the Shore, Listening To Divine Voices or Totally Spoiling Your Pooch.

Brandon Hill, co-founder of DC’s No Kings Collective, painted the mural on the exterior of the new Viceroy Washington DC.


It’s all virtual, but it’s all glorious: The Washington Chorus’ 60th anniversary kicks off this month with a Birthday Bash Oct. 3, marking the first season under the guidance of Dr. Eugene Rogers, the only African American to lead a major American symphonic chorus. Highlights include the world premiere of “Cantata for a More Hopeful Tomorrow.”


Logan Circle recently welcomed the boutique Viceroy Washington DC, the first foray for the brand in the region. The 14th Street corridor is the perfect spot for a hotel whose first statement is a massive mural by local artist Brandon Hill, co-founder of No Kings Collective. Guests of the 178-room property will love the year-round outdoor space, featuring seating nooks, fire pits and fare from BPM Coffee & Wine. From $174 per night, 1430 Rhode Island Ave. NW, 202.742.3100,


Dining outdoors has become de rigueur of late, even at resorts. The Inn at Perry Cabin recently converted the property’s greenhouses and gazebos for private dining. Options include The Cove House (a secluded greenhouse on Fogg Cove), The Boat House (a converted greenhouse overlooking the dock) and The Point House (a converted gazebo adjacent to the Miles River). 308 Watkins Lane, St. Michaels, Md., 410.745.2200,


Bark Social opens this month at Pike & Rose; the upscale bar and cafe, situated on 1 acre in North Bethesda, offers a sanctuary of bliss for canines and their owners (wine, cocktails, gourmet bites). We also love the charitable component: A portionof the venue’s proceeds goes toward the Montgomery County Humane Society. 935 Prose St., North Bethesda, Md., 240.253.6060,
