Where & When: This Week in Washington Nightlife

What to do for fun this week.

Monday: Santaland Diaries
Dave Sedaris’s 1992 piece about his experience working as an elf at a Macy’s department store has been adapted for the stage by City Artistic Partnerships with Joe Brack playing Sedaris. The play is at the Warehouse Theater. Tickets ($15) can be purchased here. 8 PM.

Tuesday: Robots and Vampires
Need a break from the holidays already? Check out the Washington Psychotronic Film Society’s screening of Robo Vampire, a 1988 B-film about zombie vampires, a robot cop, and ninjas. The screening, which is also at the Warehouse Theater, is free, but a $2 donation is suggested. 8 PM.

Wednesday: “Messiah” Sing-along
