Free and Easy: BloomBars, free jazz and Beaujolais

By Alex Baldinger, David Malitz and Stephanie Merry

No such thing as a free lunch, sure, but we've got free movies, free plays, free concerts and a free Beaujolais release party on tap for this week.

Monday

Dance History To Go
A panel of dancers, choreographers and experts have hand-selected what they consider significant images as a means to discuss Martha Graham, Marie Taglioni and other visionaries with a connection to the world of dance. RSVP to emilym@danceexchange.org.

Tuesday

Short films at BloomBars
Reggae in Japan? It exists, and it's the topic of one of the short films showing at BloomBars tonight. Discussions with the filmmakers follow the screenings.

Wednesday

Beaujolais Nouveau at Bistrot du Coin
While the French red may not be the tastiest on the market, the countdown celebrations to its uncorking have given the wine a reputation as a harbinger of good times. Bistrot du Coin's annual party features DJs and dancing, plus all the wine you can drink once the clock strikes 12. Arrive early to guarantee admission.

Thursday

'Green Grow the Lilacs'
Before "Oklahoma!" there was this drama by Cherokee dramatist Lynn Riggs about the 1907 land acquisition that created the 46th state. Performed by the U.S. Naval Academy Masqueraders.

Friday

Opening of 'Party Crashers'
Comics and art collide in this two-venue exhibit that features artists who mimic comic art and alternative comic artists working within and very outside their main medium. The exhibit runs through Jan. 16 with the opening reception on Friday.

Saturday

Wadada Leo Smith's Golden Quartet
The free-jazz trumpet visionary performs with pianist Vijay Iyer, bassist John Lindberg and drummer Pheeroan akLaff.

Sunday

Bookworks Show and Tell
Robin Moore, former manager of Bookworks, the Washington Project for the Arts store which specialized in handmade artists' books, will share items from her personal collection. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own items, as well.
