Free and Easy

By Fritz Hahn

Every Monday, the Going Out Gurus suggest ways to spend time in Washington without spending any money. Have an idea for us? Send it to events@washingtonpost.com.

Monday
Redskins Cheerleaders at Mister Days
The First Ladies of Football bring some of that FedEx Field flavor to Clarendon for a key Monday Night Football matchup. Performances take place before the game and again at halftime.

Tuesday
Oktoberfest at Gordon Biersch
The Rockville Branch of Gordon Biersch unveils its seasonal Festbier at a party with free food and beer samples.

Wednesday
'Sanjuro' at the Japanese Embassy
The sequel to Akira Kurosawa's classic samurai film "Yojimbo" finds Toshiro Mifune reprising his role of wandering warrior Sanjuro Tsubaki. Make sure you stay until the end.

Thursday
Dave Barry at Politics and Prose
Comic columnist Barry reads from his new book, "Dave Barry's History of the Millennium (So Far)."

Friday
'Hello Yasothorn' at the Freer Gallery of Art
The Smithsonian's "New Films From Southeast Asia" series continues at 7 p.m. with this hit musical comedy from Thailand. The Smithsonian's press release pushes all the right buttons: "zany," "over-the-top" and "a cast clad in retro-1960s outfits and hairdos."

Saturday
Greek Festival at Saints Constantine and Helen Greek Orthodox Church
The church's annual festival features live music, dance performances and homemade Greek dishes like mousaka and baklava.

Sunday
'La Boheme' on the Mall
You can spend at least $100 to get a seat for the Washington National Opera's performance of Puccini's "La Boheme" at the Kennedy Center, or you can watch a free simulcast on a large screen on the National Mall. Only one of these options allows you to bring a picnic.
