Free and easy: A Beatles documentary and ArtFest

By Alex Baldinger, David Malitz and Stephanie Merry

Coming back to work after a long weekend can be a drag. Luckily, a screening of the Beatles documentary "Let It Be," latkes at Cork Market, free jazz at National Geographic and a Christmas bazaar with the Swedes can serve as some ideal pick-me-ups.

Monday
Screening of 'Let It Be'
The Library of Congress screens the 1970 documentary about the Beatles, which features the Fab Four's final performance on the roof of their studio. Reservations recommended.

Tuesday
Gay Talese
From the "they don't make 'em like they used to" files, the legendary sports writer and literary journalist reads from "Honor Thy Father, A Writer's Life," which features selections from his storied career.

Wednesday
Happy Hanukkah
Celebrate the first night of the Jewish festival of lights with deep-fried potato, zucchini and leek pancakes and an array of sparkling white wines.

Thursday
'The Rhythm Road: American Music Abroad'
Break out your jazz hands for this free music series, a collaboration between New York's Lincoln Center and the U.S. State Department. Johnny Rodgers Band performs at 6 p.m., and Nasar Abadey and Supernova start jamming at 7:15.

Friday
ArtFest
The Art League presents its annual open house, including exhibits, live music, a holiday ceramic sale and artist demonstrations.

Saturday
House of Sweden Christmas Bazaar
Get into the Scandinavian spirit during this fair that features Swedish arts and crafts, activities for kids, a raffle and, of course, glogg.

Sunday
'Force of Evil'
A free event as part of the Washington Jewish Film Festival, this is a rare screening of a 1948 film noir written and directed by Abraham Polonsky, the son of Russian-American Jewish immigrants who were blacklisted in Hollywood during the McCarthy era.
