Where & When: What to Do Tonight
Vintage music and theater and art that’s gone to the dogs By Laura McKenzie
Comments () | Published November 18, 2010
From the prettiest pooch to the ugliest mutt, dogs of all kinds are immortalized in the exhibit “Every Dog Has Its Day: Celebrating Our Canine Companions” at VSA ARTiculate Gallery. Tonight’s opening reception includes live music, refreshments, and local pet vendors on hand with tips and products. 5:30; free.

Learn to lindy-hop or show off your swing skills with the vintage jazz band Blue Sky 5 at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Kogod Courtyard. The group plays everything from Nat King Cole to Duke Ellington to Fats Waller. 5 to 7; free.

It’s the last week to take part in Thirsty Thursdays at the Scena Theatre (formerly the H Street Playhouse). Catch a stage performance of the Orson Wells radio play The War of the Worlds while enjoying complimentary food, beer, and wine. 8 PM. Purchase tickets ($18 to $25) here.
