WASHINGTON -- It's probably safe to say that the worst of winter, which wasn't much of a winter at all, is behind us. As temperatures rise, make sure to spend sometime outdoors -- starting with this weekend.

Enjoy the warmer weather by watching a Strongman challenge, D.C. United's home opener or a fashionably hip bike ride along the Potomac.

Or, if your allergies are acting up, stay inside and try out for "America's Next Top Model," enjoy a steaming bowl of pho or watch some journalists rock out. This and more in our weekend guide.

FRIDAY, March 9
1  of  9
Vietnamese pop-up "Pho U" debuted yesterday after being derailed a few weeks ago following the tragic death of its chef, Toki Underground's Thang Le. But, Marvin chefs James Claudio and Brendan L'Etoile are picking up the torch and trying to lighten the mood with a menu featuring items like crispy pork and shrimp spring rolls, garlic chicken, char-grilled pork with vermicelli and beef noodle soup. All proceeds will go to Le's family. The event runs from 7 p.m. to 1 a.m. tonight and tomorrow. 2016 9th St. NW.
