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
The Fringe at Steve's Bar Room
Ever wonder where the cool kids hang out on a Monday night? They're probably among the packed crowds at Steve's Bar Room until the wee hours, listening to DJ Tru and Dimitris George spin electro and remixes. This time around, local DJ Harry Dixon is the guest.

Tuesday
The Best of Artomatic at Fraser Gallery
Did you miss Artomatic, the month-long celebration of D.C. art and artists? Maybe you just couldn't make your way through all seven floors? Bethesda's Fraser Gallery is showingdozens of works from Artomatic in this retrospective exhibit.

Wednesday
Ladies Night at Bedrock Billiards
Every Wednesday from 7 to midnight, women play pool, shuffleboard and Nintendo Wii games free at the subterranean Adams Morgan pool hall. (Usual rates start at $6 per person per hour; men still pay full price.) Drink specials are offered, too.

Thursday
"Countdown to the Moon Day" at the National Air and Space Museum
It's been 40 years since American astronauts first walked on the moon. To celebrate, the Air and Space Museum is hosting a day of activities: You can see a 3-D model of the lunar landscape, touch rocks from the moon, experiment with robots and learn about rockets.

Friday
Sunset Sessions at Champps Americana of Reston
Local DJs spin house and electronic music on Champps Americana's patio. Get there early for free beer, courtesy of Miller Lite.

Saturday
'Lawrence of Arabia' at the National Archives
Peter O'Toole stars as the controversial British adventurer T.E. Lawrence in this 1962 epic, which won seven Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actor. The noon screening is in conjunction with the ongoing "Big" exhibit.
