Monday: Free Theater!
Starting tonight, the National Theatre is kicking off their fall series of free theater and music concerts, which will take place every Monday night through December. The performances take place twice a night, at 6 and 7:30 PM. Tonight, you can catch the Marine String Quartet. Want more free theater and discounted tickets? Check out our roundup.
Tuesday: These Arms Are Snakes
The big show in town tonight is, duh, U2 hitting FedEx field. But if you're not making the trek out to Landover, you can still catch some great music tonight in a slightly more intimate venue. Imperial China, These Arms Are Snakes, and DD/MM/YY are playing DC9; the three groups have a talent for churning out angular, metallic rock. $12, 8:30 PM.
Wednesday: Happy Hour Pizza
Tonight, enjoy half-price drafts and good deals on the delicious pizzas from upstairs at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown. Want more great happy hours? Make sure to check out our Happy Hour Finder, where you can find the best drink deals all over the city.
Thursday: Eat for Oktoberfest
Chef Art Smith of Capitol Hill’s Art and Soul has planned a $45 three-course, beer-inspired dinner menu that kicks off tonight. Get things started with beer-steamed mussels and a black-pepper buttermilk biscuit, matched with a Penn Weizen brew from Pennsylvania. Next, there’s cider-braised pork shank with black-eyed-pea stew and spicy collard greens paired with an Oktoberfest lager from Delaware.
