Free and Easy Events
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ecuadorian Festival at Barcroft Park
The 17th annual festival features live music from singer Roberto Zumba and the band Sentimiento Andino, traditional dance performances, crafts and food.
"Rebel Without a Cause" on the Mall
The final movie to be shown at Screen on the Green this year is the 1955 James Dean classic, a favorite of restless teenagers everywhere.
Tabi Bonney at the Library
Known for his work with Raheem DeVaughn and Wale, this rising hip-hop star performs as part of the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities' Art Unplugged series.
Sensual Wednesdays at Eyebar
Congrats: The week is half over. Celebrate at Eyebar, where there's no cover, women drink free from 10 to 11, and copious drink specials include $2 shots and $3 Coronas. DJ Geometrix spins mash-ups and hip-hop on the main floor, while DJ Chris spins salsa and Latin hits upstairs.
Going Out Guide Happy Hour at Clarendon Ballroom
Join The Washington Post's Going Out Gurus (and a few hundred of their friends) at a party with a chill roof deck, free food and a chance to win a getaway to Rehoboth Beach, Del., or gift certificates to Georgetown Cupcake.
Uncle Q at Bourbon
Uncle Q spins a hip-hop history lesson every Friday night on the upstairs dance floor. You'll hear tunes from the old-school, Golden Age and Native Tongues eras to Jay-Z, Kanye and current standard-bearers.
"In Honor of the President: Mr. Lincoln's Music" at the Surratt House Museum
Listen to the music of the 1860s -- particularly, songs that were favorites of our 16th president and songs written for him -- in a tavern once owned by Mary Surratt, the woman hanged for being a conspirator in his assassination.
