From Wegmans:

“Our Japanese Seafood and Sushi Festival is returning for the first time since 2019, this time at our Wisconsin Avenue store in Washington D.C. located at the City Ridge complex in Tenleytown.

Wegmans has a long-standing relationship with Japan’s top fishmonger and retailer, Uoriki. Working closely with these partners in Tokyo, we have continued to expand our world-class sushi offerings and we have gained access to the famous Toyosu Fish Market (formerly Tsukiji.)

The Japanese Seafood and Sushi Festival will feature fresh seafood brought in directly from the Toyosu Market. Expert fishmongers from Japan will be flying in to work alongside us, honing seafood knife skills and preparing fish in advance of the festival.

On September 15 and 16,

our combined team of Wegmans and Uoriki will put on a spectacle unlike any other as Japanese seafood takes center stage in the front of the store. Our customers will experience beautiful fresh fish that rarely leave Japan – Kinmedai, Maaji, Sanma, Madai, Ayu, Shimaaji, Kinki, Akamutsu, and more! Our Sushi department will create unique, limited-time offerings using fish from Toyosu Market and the store will feature Japanese whisky and sake tastings, Japanese A5 Wagyu Beef, and a variety of fresh Orchids.

Not to be missed, our fishmongers will present two tuna cutting ceremonies each day at 1 p.m. and 4 p.m., featuring large tunas cut with traditional long knives (Maguro no Kaitai) and a discussion about the fish and the cutting techniques. Plenty of audience participation makes this a fun and memorable experience for all!

WHAT: Customers are invited to visit Wegmans D.C. Wisconsin Ave. location on September 15 and 16 to purchase fresh seafood from the Uoriki market. The event will feature tuna cutting ceremonies at 1 and 4 p.m. each day as well as the following stations:

We’re about a month out from summer. That means you’ve still got time for spring cleaning!

Lexi Grant, an operations manager at Well-Paid Maids, shared her go-to spring cleaning tips with WTOP News. Step one? Declutter. Get rid of items you don’t use, find space for items that need a home and organize those areas.

Then, it’s time to dust. Lexi starts with high-touch surface areas (think: refrigerator, dishwasher, counters, microwave). One area she sees often neglected is the bedroom — and it makes sense. Heavy furniture is difficult to move around, but it’s important to really get in there so dust doesn’t affect your sleep.
