Free and Easy
Every Monday, the Going Out Gurus run down free and low-cost events happening over the next seven days, including live music, movies, exhibits or pay-what-you-can theater.
Monday: 'Casablanca' at Screen on the Green
Our favorite outdoor movie festival wraps up its summer run with Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman.
Tuesday: '1812 Overture' at the Washington Monument
The U.S. Army Band performs Tchaikovsky? Interesting. The U.S. Army Band performs Tchaikovsky accompanied by live cannon fire? Don't miss it.
Wednesday: Thomas Jefferson Coin Launch at the Jefferson Memorial
Costumed reenactors will be at the Tidal Basin at 10 a.m. Answer their presidential trivia questions correctly and you win a shiny new Thomas Jefferson dollar coin.
Thursday: Eyeball Skeleton at Fort Reno
Edie Sedgwick and Sentai get top billing at the final concert of Fort Reno's 2007 season, but we like Eyeball Skeleton, a garage-rock band fronted by a pair of elementary-school-aged brothers. You have to love the lyrics to "Eyeball Skeleton": "The boogeyman came and guess what he said? He said the maple lady said you got a pointy head." Genius.
Friday: 'The Wizard of Oz' at Cherry Hill Park
A family-friendly night at the movies in Falls Church.
Saturday: The Bar-Kays at Fort Dupont Park
One of the classic funk bands of the '60s and '70s, the Bar-Kays recorded "Soul Finger" and backed Isaac Hayes on "Hot Buttered Soul."
Sunday: Arlington County Fair
Open from Thursday to Sunday, the fair includes carnival rides and games, racing pigs, a petting zoo and craft competitions.
