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
Eric Hutchinson at the Kennedy Center
Local soul singer Eric Hutchinson, who became a sensation on iTunes after favorable mentions by blogger Perez Hilton, performs on the Millennium Stage.

Tuesday
Winter Silhouette Bonsai/Penjing Exhibit at the U.S. National Arboretum
With the weather perking up, take a long lunch hour to admire the beauty of these Japanese trees.

Wednesday
Downtown Holiday Market
Not having much luck finding interesting gifts at the mall? Stop by the crafty little fair outside the American Art Museum, where dozens of vendors are selling ornaments, jewelry, pottery, photographs and other items. Live music and warming food and drinks should keep you in the holiday spirit.

Thursday
Jenna Bush at Borders Books & Music
The president's daughter signs her book "Ana's Story: A Journey of Hope," but she probably won't be making any more phone calls home.

Friday
Merry Tuba Christmas at the Kennedy Center
In the area's weirdest, coolest holiday tradition, tuba, sousaphone and euphonium players team up to play traditional Christmas music. You've never, ever heard anything like it.

Saturday
Santamania!
Got a spare Santa suit lying around? Looking to get out and blow off some holiday steam with your friends? Choose between the day-long Running of the Santas bar crawl downtown or the annual Santa Stumble happy hour and bar crawl in Georgetown.

Sunday
High Groove Steelers at the Kennedy Center
Celebrate "Caribbean Christmas" with the students of Easton High School's Steel Drum Orchestra.

Monday
'Elvis: That's the Way It Is' at the Library of Congress
You'll have a blue Christmas without seeing this 1970 documentary, which follows Elvis Presley and his band as they rehearse for a return to the Las Vegas stage.
