Brighten a dreary month by wandering through the National Gallery of Art to admire bright and beautiful pieces. There's over 2000 pieces in the building so it's easy to while away a day.

It's a lovely day that might inspire you to get more creative in your own life.
Have drinks at a jazz club on the U Street Corridor
Previously known as "Black Broadway", the U Street Corridor is a hub of jazz clubs, eclectic dining, and other fun entertainment options. When you're trying to stave off the bitter chill that comes with February in D.C., visiting a few of the jazz clubs for a cocktail and some live music can be the perfect way to spend an evening. JoJo's harkens back to 1920s glamour, and you can snag a seat by the fireplace to stay toasty. Twins is another excellent option, featuring both hot new artists and the older jazz greats, all in an intimate venue where you're sure to have a good view.
