Getting Up Guide: Kee Malesky, Washington Horse Show
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Tuesday:
If you're looking for a new member of your weekly pub trivia team, you might want to ask Kee Malesky. The National Public Radio staff librarian lives in the world of the obscure; for example, did you know the average American drank 22.7 gallons of coffee in 2007? And that quantity is only half of what was consumed in the 1940s? Stuff like that can be found in Malesky's "All Facts Considered: The Essential Library of Inessential Knowledge," which she will discuss at 6:30 p.m.
Saddle up for the annual Washington International Horse Show. The Verizon Center hosts six days of jumping, dressage, terrier races and more. Daily sessions begin between 7 and 8 a.m.; evening sessions begin between 6:30 and 7 p.m. Visit www.wihs.org for a complete schedule.
'The Family Jams'
This documentary for the Pitchfork set follows buzzed-about indie rockers Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom and Vetiver on their tour of the country in the summer of 2004. Get your tickets early for this screening at the Corcoran.
