Getting Up Guide: (Vitamin) Water colors, free Shakespeare

By Alex Baldinger

What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening on Wednesday:

Liquid Soul

This Vitamin Water-sponsored performance at The Fridge is as strange a promotional event as you are likely to see: the artists of AM Radio will be creating live art pieces mixing actual Vitamin Water into their paints. Complimentary Vitamin Water will also be available, of course, beginning at 7 p.m.

Grill Night at the Occidental

On Wednesday nights, chef Rodney Scruggs presents a special patio menu at the Pennsylvania Avenue institution, featuring sizzling cuisine prepared on the restaurant's oversize grills, weather permitting. The menu typically includes includes lobster bisque soup, grilled duck sausage, Virginia bison burgers, yellow fin tuna, jumbo prawns and New York strip steak. The live grilling will be accompanied by live music.

Shakespeare Free for All

It's the final week for the Shakespeare Theatre's free production of "Twelfth Night," so if you've been waiting out the crowds over the past few weeks, the time to strike might be tonight's 7:30 p.m. performance. Rather than waiting in line for hours in the heat (with the very real possibility of not scoring a ticket), there is an online lottery system this year for up to two tickets. Here's how it works: For evening shows, visit the STC Web site before 1 p.m. and submit information for the lottery; hopeful theater-goers will be notified of their luck via email.
