Last week I stumbled across an amazing website for the International Club of DC or ICDC (http://www.internationalclubdc.com/). I've been planning to attend some embassy events for a while so I did a Google search and came across the site which lists not only events at various embassies but numerous activities focused on developing relationships with the international population in and around DC.
Some of the upcoming events in June that I found to be of interest are listed below but there are hundreds of events posted on their website.
