Going Out Gurus: September 24, 2006 - September 30, 2006

Light (on the Wallet) Entertainment

We all know the plight. The rent check's been written, the bills have been paid and that leaves low funds for the fun jar. If you've already consumed Julia's list of free things to do in and around the District,...

Let Free-dom Ring

"What's your favorite free or cheap thing to do in D.C.? I'm trying to save $$." That's one of the questions we didn't get to in yesterday's Got Plans? As resident art junkie, I think it's probably pretty obvious that...

Looking Ahead to the Cinema Season

So far, the fall movie season hasn't exactly blown me away. "All the King's Men"? Big disappointment. "School for Scoundrels"? Well, let's just say it's no "Bad Santa." But I still have hope that some compelling films are just around...

It's Elementary at PS 7's

PS 7's is named for chef Peter Smith and the restaurant's address (777 I St.), but it also feels very much like a nod to elementary school. Be it at the bar or a table in the dining room, obsequious...

Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

Rollie Fingers. Tom Selleck. Friedrich Nietzsche. Salvador Dali. Freddie Mercury. Teddy Roosevelt. What do these great men have in common? Mustaches. Bushy, waxy, attention-getting mustaches. We'd wager Magnum P.I. would do pretty well for himself at McFadden's Friday, where the...

Make It Work

Tonic is perhaps the most unlikely place in the District to have become the place to go for "Project Runway" viewing parties, but sometimes things get a little crazy in this mixed-up world. Tonight, the King of Beers is setting...

Beers as Big as Your Head

Oompah bands and lederhosen are nice, but nothing says Oktoberfest like a huge glass mug of beer. Known as a mass (short for a mass krug) or a seidel, these weighty vessels hold one liter of beer -- that's almost...

'Souris with a Smile

The newest meat market in Washington isn't a singles bar, but a Dupont-area French bistro with a menu that'll make any red meat-lover content. Montsouris, from the owners of Montmartre, opened in the former Johnny's Half Shell space on P...

Unleashing Your Inner Kit Kat

"Cabaret" at Arena Stage is a political musical about receding civil liberties in Weimar-era Berlin, but the most striking feature of the show is the brazen sex appeal of the nightclub set and its saucy performers. As I watched the...
