Free and Easy

By Fritz Hahn

Every Monday, the Going Out Gurus suggest ways to enjoy Washington's cultural scene without spending any money. Have an idea for us? Send it to events@washingtonpost.com.

Monday
Letters to Sala at the Russell Senate Office Building
Sala Garncarz saved her collection of letters and diaries while imprisoned in a Nazi labor camp, and a selection of these documents will be on display in the rotunda of the Russell Building for one week only. Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and former Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick are among the speakers at the grand opening ceremony.

Tuesday
Don't Hassle the Hof Brau at Rustico
Drink Oktoberfest beers. Listen to David Hasselhoff's hits. What could be more German?

Wednesday
Aubrey Ghent at the Library of Congress and the Millennium Stage
You have two chances to hear lively sacred music performed by renowned lap steel guitarist Ghent, who has been named a master of folk music by the Smithsonian.

Thursday
Roland Mesnier at Borders Books and Music in Seven Corners
The former White House pastry chef dishes on desserts and signs copies of his new book, "Basic to Beautiful Cakes."

Friday
Howard Homecoming Party with Fabolous at H2O
In a weekend packed with events hosted by Diddy and LL Cool J, there are two reasons this isn't your usual Howard Homecoming affair: It's open to college-age students (18 and over) and it's free, as long as you RSVP and show up early.

Saturday
Farm Days
Get back to nature today by exploring 19 different working farms in Frederick County, or touring 16 farms (and 9 wineries) across Loudoun County. Activities include hayrides, fruit picking, wine tastings and a rodeo.

Sunday
Bethesda Row Arts Festival
The 10th annual outdoor juried art show features nearly 200 artists displaying their drawings, sculptures, ceramics and other works. There will also be food vendors and live music.

Monday
Czech Philharmonic Chamber Orchestra at the Library of Congress
The concert includes Mozart's Violin Concerto in G Major with violinist Barbora Kolárov, and Marcello's Oboe Concerto in D minor, with featured soloist Jana Brozková.
