Every week, 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
Organist Richard Pilliner at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall
Here's your chance to sit in the grandeur of the Concert Hall and hear the Kennedy Center's organ played by a pro.

Tuesday
Afghanistan: Hidden Treasures from the National Museum, Kabul
The National Gallery's extensive survey of Afghan art closes in a few weeks; check it out before the crowds come home. There will be a gallery talk at noon today.

Wednesday
Nancy Whitney-Reiter At Olsson's
Want to get out of the rat race? This author will tell you how she did during a reading of her book "Unplugged: How to Disconnect from the Rat Race, Have an Existential Crisis, and Find Meaning and Fulfillment."

Thursday
Goodbye to Summer party at ACKC Alexandria
Sample ice cream and truffles at the chocolate boutique's new Del Ray location.

Friday
'Living Sculpture' at Project 4
Guru Stephanie Merry found herself mesmerized at this exhibition of living, breathing, human sculptures. The next performance is at 7:30 p.m. tonight.

Saturday
Planet Arlington World Music Festival
Get a taste of world music at Arlington's third annual fest, featuring the Celtic sounds of Solas, Lebanese vocalist Tania Saleh and Congolese salsa from Ricardo Lemvo & Makina Loca.

Sunday
Greenbelt Labor Day Festival
This annual family-friendly festival takes place all weekend, but we think it's most worth the trip on Sunday, when R&B pioneers The Legendary Orioles perform.

Monday
Page-to-Stage
Preview the upcoming theater season during this annual event. Today, Signature Theater presents a showcase of three new musicals at Millennium Stage.

Tuesday
'Gawu' at the National Museum of African Art
Today's your last chance to catch this beautifully complex exhibition of El Anatsui's metal sculpture. Some of the works on view were made from discarded bottle caps and aluminum bands that once graced liquor bottles.
