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
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.

Tuesday
'Renee Stout: Journal, Book One' at Hemphill Fine Arts
Renee Stout's engaging "Journal, Book One" uses paintings, drawings and photographs to artfully explore the life of her alter ego. Hurry up and visit: The exhibit closes Oct. 27.

Wednesday
Sierra Leone's Refugee All-Stars (Film) at American University
Shown as part of American University's Human Rights Film Series, this documentary follows a group of West African musicians who began creating dance music in refugee camps in Guinea.

Thursday
Roland Mesnier at Olsson's Books and Records
The former White House pastry chef talks about cakes and desserts that even novice bakers can prepare, and offers samples. (Yes, Valerie Plame is also talking about her new book tonight, but will she have cake? I don't think so.)

Friday
Opening Reception for 'Resident Artists Living and Working in Dupont Circle' at the Washington Studio School
Sondra N. Arkin, Anne Marchand, Marc Monteleone, Minna Newman Nathanson and Nicolas F. Shi rep their hood at this new show.

Saturday
Air and Scare at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center
Learn about the secrets of flight and how they pertain to ghosts and witches; watch classic cartoons in the IMAX theater; listen to spooky stories and meet "Star Wars" characters.

Sunday
'Rocky Horror Picture Show' at Tallula
The cult musical horror movie is the featured film at Tallula's ongoing Sunday night series. Ask your server nicely for extra rice and a couple of pieces of toast.

Monday
Sandra Day O'Connor at the National Portrait Gallery
America's first female Supreme Court justice discusses her rise from a humble Arizona ranch to the marble halls of the nation's highest court. Arrive early: Tickets are first-come, first-served.
