Hello PoP fans! It’s Amy from Free in DC happy to be guest posting here for the third week. Hope you all have been enjoying this new feature. I’m psyched to share with you low cost and free things happening in DC each Thursday for this eve through the weekend. Lots of great things going on tonight and this weekend is also looking pretty good. Hope you enjoy some  Here are some things for you to choose from this eve and this weekend!

Tonight, so much to choose from! Happy Hour at ChurcKey on 14th St hosted by Going Out Gurus, 5:00pm – 7:00pm, free food, drink specials and prizes, be sure to see post for special details. Smith Farm hosts a free Talk on the Connection between Smell, Emotions and Health from 6:30pm – 8:30pm. Free Ballroom Dance Class at Ebenezer’s near Union Station from 7:00pm – 9:30pm. Film Screening of 10 Shorts from Quebec at Letelier in Georgetown, 7:00pm, not free but reasonable. My personal pick for tonight is Synetic Theater’s Pay-What-You-Can performance of Kafka’s Metamorphosis at 8:00pm. These guys are pretty spectacular, if you haven’t seen them before this would be a great chance to experience Synetic’s surreal style of physical theater. I suggest getting there early to be sure you get in.

During the day this weekend, you can learn more about the wonderful, free financial programs that CAAB offers DC residents at their Annual Free Financial Fair this Saturday from 10:00am – 2:00pm at the Reeves Center, 14th & U St.  You can also check out the National Cherry Blossom Parade on Saturday from 10:00am – Noon and the Street Festival from 11:00am – 6:00pm.
