“Tonight is a special event at the Cafe Saint-Ex trivia. Jeopardy! contestant coordinators are in town this week doing some auditions, and a couple of them (including a senior producer) have decided to drop into the Cafe Saint-Ex trivia night to give players the down low on how to get into the contestant process and meet some of the DMV’s Jeopardy! fans. They’ll be doing some swag giveaways and special Jeopardy! themed prizes on top of the usual bar tabs that go to the top two teams.” (more…)

“May is mental health awareness month, but most of us aren’t aware just how many of us struggles. Hearing that 1 in 5 of us has a mental health challenge isn’t as meaningful as hearing the humans facing those challenges.

That’s the point of All The Feels, a mental health variety show, that is next Wednesday, May 29th at Union Stage. Ten local performers will tell stories, do stand up comedy, share poetry and sing about their experiences with challenges from depression and bipolar, to substance abuse and suicide. (more…)

“How lame is it that the keynote speaker to this year’s White House Correspondents’ dinner is boring old historian Ron Chernow?? Wouldn’t you rather see a sharp-tongued and super woke comedian like, say, Haywood Turnipseed Jr. whose performed at the Kennedy Center take the stage? Wouldn’t it be fun if The Donald himself made an appearance??

Forget the Nerd Prom the night before, The Unofficial Correspondents’ Dinner is a first-of-its-kind Political Roast show that will feature a constituency of DC’s best comedians, in character, for a bipartisan bashing of epic proportions. (more…)

Crab, chickens, and pizza.

MONDAY, AUGUST 27

FEELIN’ CRABBY…Yeah, crab is good, but crab on a MLB baseball field? That’s even better. Come eat a crab dinner on Nats Park complete with Old Bay-steamed Maryland blue crabs, garlic potatoes, an Eastern Shore corn salad, cupcakes, and all-you-can-drink Budweiser. Oh, you also get a Nats crab mallet and pint glass to take home, too.

LOCAL PLAYERS…Celebrate local artists at tonight’s Night of New Works event. Republic Restoratives will host DC playwrights, actors, and directors who will perform six new 10-minute plays. This year’s theme is (fittingly) temperature. Come early for a cocktail hour, or stay after for a post-show reception.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 24

CRANK IT UP…Come rock out at a punk rock-themed karaoke get-together at Black Cat. Belt out some Ramones tunes and lose your voice without fear, because it all benefits Girls Rock! D.C. The group sends girls and trans and non-binary kids to rock music camp, where they practice their skills with experienced teachers and learn to be true rockstars.

JAM ON…Are you excited for Outessa? It’s a female-forward music festival geared toward the outdoors, and it’ll be hosted next month. In the meantime, join the hosts REI at their spot for a music preview by DJ Damn Kham, cocktails from Lyon Distilling Company, and some snacks. Bonus: They’ll be giving away tickets to the festival!

CRAZY RICH ASIANS…Have you seen Crazy Rich Asians yet? The film follows Rachel Chu as she travels to Singapore to meet her boyfriend’s family…and it turns out they’re rich. Like, crazy rich. You can catch the blockbuster hit tonight at the National Museum of American History, but they’ll be showing it with subtitles, a great addition for those with hearing problems or who are learning English.

What to Do This Week in D.C. (8/20 – 8/23)

Israeli cooking, Shakespeare, and burgers.

MONDAY, AUGUST 20

HISTORY, SIDE OF BEER…Come out and enjoy a beer made from a recipe stored in the National Museum of American History. This blend is made with New York, Oregon, and Bavarian hops, and it hasn’t been produced in 78 years. Try it yourself at Right Proper while a panel of historians, authors, and beer specialists talk about historical brewing. There will also be food via another recipe stored in the museum’s archives.

LEARN 2 COOK…Learn the basics of Israeli cooking at a Sixth & I class. A chef and food writer will lead you through the steps of making latkes, ceviche, date and honey cake, and plenty more. After, you’ll sit down to a buffet dinner to reward yourself for all your hard work (and everything served is kosher).
