MOVIE: Marijuana Mondays is the Black Cat’s weekly weed-themed film series. On Monday, they’re showing Method Man and Redman’s greatest theatrical oeuvre How High plus raffling off a packet of marijuana seeds. Free, 8 PM.


YOGA: There’s no doubt we’re all still getting over the intense cabin fever that comes along with being trapped inside all weekend. WithLoveDC’s Morning Yoga and Recess at Penn Social is the perfect opportunity to unwind while also getting out that pent-up energy before reentering the real, working world again. $7.32, 6AM.

MOVIE Can’t get enough of Bruce Lee flicks and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon? Then Songbyrd’s monthly classic martial arts film screening Can I Kick It? needs to be on your calendar. This month is Ip Man, the semi-biographical story of Yip Man, who taught Bruce Lee as well as the rest of the world the martial art Wing Chun. Free, 6PM.


DISCUSSION: AP Washington correspondent and writer Jesse Holland discusses his book The Invisibles: Slavery Inside The White House and How It Helped Shape America at Busboys and Poets on 14th and V. Holland delves into the lives of the White House’s least-talked about residents: the slaves brought into the mansion by 10 of the first 12 presidents. Free, 6:30 PM.

ART: Get in touch with your inner artist with the help of some professionals. Your ticket for Art Jamz’s intro to painting class at their Brookland studio gets you a canvas, an easel, a smock and two hours of help from a motivating instructor who will go over basic painting techniques. Drinks will be available for purchase as well, if it takes a little alcohol to get your creative juices flowing. $35-$38, 7 PM.
