Tuesday, May 27

POOL PARTY: Assuming the rain holds off, it’s a beautiful day to sit by the pool (hopefully you’re not pooled out after this weekend). Head to the Penthouse Pool Lounge on top of Vida Fitness in U Street for the first Twilight Tuesday of the year. There’ll be food, music, and a fully stocked bar. For a limited time, entry is free with RSVP. 7:30 PM.

Wednesday, May 28

FILM: NoMa’s free outdoor movie nights start this week, too (isn’t summer wonderful?). Head to L Street between Second and Third streets, Northeast, for a screening of the original Back to the Future, which turns 30(!) next year. TaKorean, Big Cheese, Red Hook Lobster, and a few other food trucks will be around, and there’ll be music, giveaways, and Frisbee before the movie starts at dusk. Free. 7 PM.

Thursday, May 29

COMEDY: Science Club hosts After Class, a comedy night that might help you actually learn something. Local comedians will take to the stage and present, TED Talk-style, about a topic of their choosing. It’ll be wacky, the facts might be made up, but hey, they’ll probably be some of the best PowerPoint presentations you’ve ever seen. Free. 8:30 PM.
