Going Out Guide: 7 things to do in the D.C. area on the weekend of March 21-23

Friday-Sunday: After its opening was postponed by more than three months, the new Dolcezza Gelato Factory and Coffee Lab will finally open near Union Market. The 4,000-square-foot Northeast warehouse is the production hub for the rapidly expanding business, which now includes four retail storefronts, plus restaurants serving Dolcezza sweets. As of Friday, it’s also a walk-in gelato and coffee shop, where you’ll be able to taste freshly churned gelatos and sorbets, served in porcelain or glass with real silverware; or drink a coffee or espresso from Stumptown. Friday through Sunday, the shop will offer tours at 2 and 4 p.m. daily; pints (usually $10.50) will be half-price. The shop, at 550 Penn St. NE (202-333-4646), opens at noon Friday.
