Things to Do

Where & When: This Week in Washington Nightlife

Monday: FotoWeek DC
All things photography continue this week with FotoWeek DC. Our pick for tonight? Head to the National Geographic Grosvenor Auditorium for "When Sights and Sounds Converge: Storytelling in the Digital World." Folks from NPR and National Geographic will discuss the evolution of photography, and how the internet has changed the ways in which we tell stories visually. 6:30 PM; free. RSVP to

Tuesday: European Films
Can't get enough of all things European? We imagine we'll find you up at AFI over the next few weeks, as their European Union Film Showcase continues through November 24. Tonight, you can check out the Danish film Applaus, which tells the story of an alcoholic actress trying to determine if motherhood is a role that suits her. 7 PM. $10.

Wednesday: Veterans Day
Washington is hosting several events to celebrate the service of military men and women all over the world. Most monuments are hosting a wreath-laying ceremony. You can also head to the Navy Memorial for a book signing and Q&A with David Sears, author of At War With The Wind, a book that details the closing months of World War II and the US Navy's operations dealing with kamikaze pilots. Noon.

Thursday: Museum Shop Around 
Want to get a jump start on your holiday shopping? Head tonight to the Strathmore Mansion for their annual Museum Shop Around. Fifteen local museums will be offering up some of their best museum gifts. Admission is $8, and doors open at 10 AM.
