It really is exhausting always rooting for the anti-hero. Taylor Swift dropped her stadium tour schedule, and D.C. is not on the list (Philly, here we come?).

Best believe we’re still bejeweled. We can still make the whole weekend shimmer — especially with all this warm weather, ideal for checking out the fall foliage.

Still haunted by Halloween dreams? Laurel House of Horrors and Cox Farms’ Fields of Fear are still running through Saturday.

And although Día de los Muertos has passed, it’s still worth checking out the ofrenda at The Mexican Cultural Institute on 16th Street NW or this special menu at Richard Sandoval’s dLeña Wood-Fire Mexican Cocina in Mount Vernon Triangle.

But for anyone already hitting play on Mariah Carey, there are options for wintry fun, including Reston’s ice rink and a Christmas market.

Here’s what else to do this weekend.

Things to Do in Washington, D.C.

Big Build (Saturday, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., National Building Museum): Let’s play with tools (safely) National Building Museum. This all-ages, free event features everything from engineering projects to VR experiences to construction equipment you can climb in.

DC Beer Fest (Saturday, Nationals Park): Sample a few of the 80 beers on tap at Nationals Park, and you’ll be running to check out the dueling piano bar. Two sessions are available. You can go GA for $50 or VIP for $90.

Mindful Drinking Festival (Saturday, 2-6 p.m., Craft Beer Cellar DC at 301 H Street NE): Want to try zero- and low-proof alcohol without committing to buying a whole bottle? For $20, you can sample 20 beverages and watch cocktail demonstrations.
