Where & When: What to Do This Weekend
Comments () | Published March 18, 2009
Sunday, March 22: Chicks with Chips is a girls-only Texas Hold ’Em tournament at Restaurant 3. A short tutorial will be given in advance, and cocktails will be available courtesy of some of the area’s best female bartenders, including Gina Chersevani, Chantal Tseng, and Ria Freydberg. Tickets are $65 per player, with proceeds benefiting New Endeavors, a charity helping homeless women. For more information, call 703-524-4440.

African-American opera singer Marian Anderson was honored in January during the Inaugural concert held at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Now, Let Freedom Sing: The Story of Marian Anderson, an opera put together by the Washington Performing Arts Society and the Washington National Opera, is onstage at the Atlas Performing Arts Center. Showtimes are 2 and 7; free, but tickets must be requested in advance at

Former Top Chef contestant and Good Stuff Eatery owner Spike Mendelsohn will be at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue to share tips, recipes, and demonstrate matzo’s many uses. Tickets are $9. Wonder if he’ll have any comments on the spanking that Good Stuff Eatery received by Elevation Burger in our Burger Brackets.

Think you can top our rendition of Offspring’s “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)”? (No, seriously, we really did sing that song at Sticky Rice last night.) You’ll probably need some practice. The Dupont Circle gay bar Cobalt has karaoke starting at 9. For more bars with karaoke, check out our guide.
