Free and easy events

By Stephanie Merry

Bid farewell to summer on the Donovan House rooftop, check out the latest entry into the expanding list of after-hours museum parties and pay a visit to the annual arts smorgasbord known as Crafty Bastards.

Monday
Drift Mondays
With the arrival of fall, Donovan House's weekly rooftop party is coming to a close. The yacht-themed soiree features drink discounts and DJs, as well as priority admission to those who RSVP through the event's Facebook page.

The final Drift Monday party of the year has been postponed until next Monday due to rain.

Tuesday
Kim O'Donnel
The former Washington Post food columnist has a new book, "The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook," and will have a sampling of vegetarian dishes for this event.

Wednesday
Vibra Peru
The sounds of bossa nova, Cuban son, jazz, flamenco and rumba blend with Peruvian folk music in the sonic melange that is Vibra Peru, the brainchild of Peruvian producer Jean Paul Strauss and Veronica Görbitz.

Thursday
VSA: Playwright Discovery Evening
VSA, the organization dedicated to spotlighting artists with disabilities, highlights the recipients of the 2010 Playwright Discovery Award. This year's showcase includes two short plays -- "The Marionette Effect" by 17-year-old Laura Hogikyan and the one-man show "Jack From Above," starring Tony-winning director Jack Hofsiss. To get your free tickets, email EFKey@vsarts.org.

Friday
Portraits After 5
The National Portrait Gallery is the latest museum to offer an after-hours event, featuring video projections, a pop-up photo booth studio and a DJ.

Saturday
Crafty Bastards
Do you love owning cool, one-of-a-kind knickknacks and decorations that will make your friends jealous? From punk-rock baby clothes to iPhone covers and rebellious screen prints, Crafty Bastards is the place to get them. The event, presented by the Washington City Paper, combines the do-it-yourself spirit of Etsy with underground artists from the D.C. community.

Sunday
Washington Wizards Fan Fest
Meet former players, work on your game in the skills and drills area, and watch the team close out training camp with an open scrimmage beginning at 12:30 p.m.

-- Alex Baldinger, David Malitz and Stephanie Merry
