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
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.

Tuesday
High Heel Race on 17th Street NW
Flamboyantly dressed divas race through Dupont Circle in the High Heel Race, the city's greatest Halloween tradition.

Wednesday
Spank Spooktacular Halloween Bash at MCCXXIII
It's worth getting on the (free) guest list for this party, which features three hours of free drinks, a free late-night soul food buffet and a costume contest with a $500 top prize.

Thursday
'Earl Cunningham's America' at the Smithsonian American Art Museum
This is the last day to catch the museum's massive Cunningham retrospective, which features 50 paintings by one of the premier 20th century folk modernists.

Friday
The Satin Doll Trio at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel
The local jazz group, featuring the vocals of Patrice Ferris, specializes in romantic ballads, including songs by Sarah Vaughan and Julie London.

Saturday
Mid-City Artist Open Studios Around Logan and Dupont Circles
More than 20 artists in the Logan/Dupont area -- sculptors, photographers, painters -- pull back the veil on the artistic process by opening their studios to the public.

Sunday
Edward Hopper Family Weekend at the National Gallery of Art
Hands-on activities, musical and theatrical performances and film screenings celebrate American artist Edward Hopper.

Monday
Flamenco Night at Cafe Citron
Watch traditional Spanish dancers perform in the low-lit club as a guitarist and singer provide stirring music.

Wow, that O'Connor thing was great. Oh, wait. You posted this fifteen minutes before it started so we all missed it. Why bother at that point?

We had some problems with our database on Monday, but since Free and Easy runs from Monday to Monday, we originally posted about the Sandra Day O'Connor event on Monday, Oct. 22, at 1:31 p.m. (http://blog.washingtonpost.com/goingoutgurus/2007/10/free_and_easy_11.html)

Sorry for the delay with this week's column.
