WHAT YOU MISSED ...

FOOD (... AND DRINKS):

It is not too late to attend the final event on this week's Can't Miss Events. National Harbor celebrates the spring season with a waterfront food and wine festival emphasizing food and wine pairing, artisanal and organic products, and boutique wines. The event includes tastings, cooking demonstrations and educational seminars on culinary and wine trends, sustainability issues, and supporting local farmers and resources. The Food and Wine Festival at National Harbor will present more than 150 International wines, spirits and beers featured along with local and regional favorites.

MUSIC: 

The first weekend of the Coachella Music and Art Festival was one for the books. Guns N' Roses performed with AC/DC's Angus Young, Ice Cube graced the stage with some members of N.W.A, Kesha performed, and none other than the island queen herself, Rihanna, joined Calvin Harris on stage. Although, the performances are an important part of Coachella, the fashion statements made every year are worth being addressed.

POP CULTURE: 

John Legen tweeted on April 7, 2016, " Our new love is here! Luna Simone Stephens, born on Thursday, the 14th. We couldn't be any happier." Chrissy Teigen also made an announcement via instagram stating that her daughter weighed 6 pounds and 11 ounces. "She's here! Luna Simone Stephens, we are so in love with you! And sleepy. Vey sleepy!" The couple did not reveal the sex of their baby until December of 2015, and they specifically picked a girl for their first baby. Tiger said, "Not only am I having a girl, but I picked the girl from her little embryo." For the Instagram picture check out: JOHN LEGEND AND CHRISSY TEIGEN'S DAUGHTER HAS ARRIVED

STYLE:

Millions tuned in to watch the 2016 MTV Awards, held at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California. While the awards show isn't as popular as the VMA's, the MTV Awards still managed to give us a few laughs and a look into what the celebrities wore for the night. Although, some came with the hottest and most extravagent outfits, others just simply didn't get the memo. For more pictures check out: 2016 MTV AWARDS STYLE RECAP

SPORTS:

Behind goalie Holtby's 41 saves, the hometown Washington Capitals were able to beat the Flyers 4-1 in Game 2 Saturday night to take a 2-0 series lead. The Flyers pushed hard right away and generated some good chances in the early minutes. The Capitals went without a shot on goal for the first six minutes of the game. The Flyers outshot the Capitals 42-23 and dominated for much of the game but like always, the Caps were able to provide instant offense. The series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3 on Monday night. For the rest of this past weekend's sports news visit: THIS WEEKEND IN SPORTS

POLITICS:

"It is absurd that in Brooklyn, New York -- where I was born, actually -- tens of thousands of people as I understand it, have been purged from the voting rolls," said Democratic candidate, Bernie Sanders. In his words, Tuesday's voting process was a "disgrace." Over 125,000 were turned away from the rolls in the New York primary. Some voters were removed due to moving out of the borough and others were removed due to bounce back mail. Additionally, 70,000 voters were taken off from the rolls due to not voting in the past two federal elections; thus labeling them inactive. This all came in addition to long lines, understaffing and forcing voters to cast an affidavit. Needless to say Clinton pulled out strong victory in New York behind the shocking support of many African-Americans and women. Trump also pulled out an easy victory. 

TECH: 

Where are all the good jobs these days? Tech companies! According to an article in the Wall Street Journal, by Georgia Wells, "The tech industry, where a dearth of talent is driving up annual salaries well past $100,000, dominates a new list of the top-paying companies in the U.S." The apps at the end of our fingertips are paying some of the highest median salaries annually. These include Google, Facebook and Twitter! For the full article check out: Tech Firms Dominate the Top-Paying Companies in U.S.
