Tuesday, July 14: Running of the French Maids
To celebrate Bastille Day, L’Enfant Cafe is hosting a French-maid relay race. Gather at this Adams Morgan bar at 8 to witness more than 30 people decked out in sexy French-maid costumes. We suggest arriving early to take advantage of food and drink specials. The party is hosted by King Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette—or at least a couple of folks dressed up like them—so everyone’s eating (free) cake! For more Bastille Day fun, check out our guide.
Wednesday, July 15: Headscarf and the Angry Bitch
Part of this year's Fringe Festival, Zehra Fazal's twist on Hedwig and the Angry Inch, takes a look at what growing up Muslim in America is like. The show (which is not recommended for kids, FYI) is onstage at the Warehouse Theatre. 6 PM. To purchase tickets, click here.
