Thirsty Tuesday times three [Events Roundup]

It's a pretty quiet week, except for three events all squished together on a Tuesday. Decisions, decisions, decisions.

This week, we recommend you go check out the Smithsonian National Museum of American History’s new Innovation Wing, especially if you have kids. The grand opening will feature the making of a record-breaking U.S. flag made of Legos. And to prepare yourself for the July 4th festivities, be sure to check out three D.C. tech events all happening on a Tuesday: a rooftop party organized by Digital District; the Vinetta Showcase, featuring four women-led startups; and the Women Startup Challenge’s grand finale.
