Virginia Archaeology Month at the Torpedo Factory

Friday
Oktoberfest Reston at Reston Town Center
The annual German celebration comes to Loudoun County, with polka music and traditional German dancing at the town pavilion until 11 p.m.

Saturday
Navy Day at the Washington Navy Yard and U.S. Navy Memorial
Celebrate the Navy's 233rd birthday at the Washington Navy Yard and the U.S. Navy Memorial. Tour the USS Barry, the Cold War Museum and the Naval Art Museum, taste birthday cake and watch the Naval drill team at the Navy Yard, or listen to naval bands, including the Commodores jazz ensemble, and see exhibits and displays at the Navy Memorial.

Sunday
'Perspectives: Y.Z. Kami' at the Freer Gallery of Art
Large-scale works by the Tehran-born painter are meditations on meditation.

Monday
Trivia Night at the Wonderland Ballroom
One of the most crowded and amusing trivia nights in Washington consists of 10 grueling rounds of 10 questions each, which can cover any topic -- D.C. trivia, science fiction, politics, indie rock, or whatever the hosts come up with. Persevere, though, because the winning team gets $100 worth of food and drinks (or, more likely, drinks).

I'm pretty sure Reston and the Reston Town Center are still in Fairfax County, not Loudoun County.
