In addition to the Jon Stewart Rally to Restore Sanity, the Marine Corps Marathon, and the Howard Homecoming festivities, this weekend also brings us a slew of street closures and parking restrictions due to the Georgetown Halloween celebration. One more reason to leave the car at home this weekend.

M Street and Wisconsin Avenue NW will probably remain open, but don't count on navigating or parking on the side streets. DDOT officials say revelers and residents are "strongly encouraged to take public transportation" both Saturday and Sunday. That's the refrain of the week. A list of temporary regs from DDOT is after the jump.
