FILM AND BEER: The Embassy of the Czech Republic presents Czech director, actor, and screenwriter Martin Frič’s romantic comedy Christian at Bistro Bohem. Be sure to order some Czech beer while you’re there to really get a feel for the culture. 7 PM. 

THEATRE: Director Mark Ramont’s unique take on the heartbreaking Tennessee Williams play The Glass Menagerie runs at Ford’s Theatre until February 21. Williams coined this specific piece of work a “memory play,” saying in his notes that, “the scene is memory and is therefore non-realistic.” $25-$50 7:30 PM. 


EAT AND LEARN: Hellbender Brewing Company is hosting a delicious and informative evening of local meat, cheese, and beer on Wednesday. Hellbender pairs its beer with cheese from PA Bowen Farmstead in Brandywine, Maryland and charcuterie from the Landover, Maryland-area Meatcrafters. Additionally, a panel and Q&A featuring the head brewer of Hellbender, head cheesemaker of PA Bowen Farmstead, and founder of Meatcrafters will give further insight into the culinary and drink-making processes. $32.64, 6:30 PM.

MUSIC: Unknown Mortal Orchestra, the fuzzy-funky-psych-garage-indie-R&B amalgamation that’s nearly impossible to define but so easy to groove to, comes to the 9:30 Club. The group first received notoriety with the track “Ffunny Ffrends,” which frontman Ruban Nielson posted to his Bandcamp profile unprompted. $25, 7PM.
