PLAY: There’s fun for the whole family at the Capital Fair at RFK. Enjoy rides, games, food, and more. The event, ending on May 31, opens at 5 PM on weeknights and noon on Saturday and Sunday. $3 entrance fee, plus additional for rides.

COMEDY: Don’t settle for tuning in to Comedy Central for your dose of Amy Schumer. Head to DAR Constitution Hall where the former Last Comic Standing contestant will offer up her unique brand of risqué humor. The Inside Amy Schumer star visits DC for one night only. Tickets are running low and are available on StubHub. 7:30 PM.


DRINK: Thirsty? RFD is ready to remedy that with a beer-tasting that includes at least 12 breweries–DC Brau, 3 Stars Brewing Company, and others. The so-called “Strong Ale Tasting” takes place in the bar’s back room on 7th Street, NW. Not into those beers? Order one of more than 300 bottles offered there. 6 PM, $40.

THEATER: Atlas Theater premieres a new, dark comedy about a woman who prematurely fulfills her role in a suicide pact, leaving her friends to rummage through her belongings. The Welders: happiness (and other reasons to die) stars Melissa Flaim, Elan Zafir, Carlos Saldana, Miyuki Williams, and Graham Pilato. The production runs through June 13. 8 PM, $20.
