Getting Up Guide: Salman Rushie, 'Annie'

By Alex Baldinger, Fritz Hahn and Anne Kenderdine

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

Salman Rushdie
The Award-winning writer reads from and discusses his new novel, "Luka and the Fire of Life," in which returns to the same world he imagined in 1990's "Haroun and the Sea of Stories." Rushdie appears at the Sixth and I Synagogue at 7 p.m. in an event co-sponsored by Politics and Prose. Tickets are $12 each, or two free with purchase of the book.

Beaujolais Nouveau
As Wednesday night turns into Thursday morning around the world, millions of bottles of a French wine called Beaujolais nouveau will be uncorked. It's not because this young, fruity vintage is particularly fantastic, but because, according to French law, it cannot be sold before the third Thursday in November. This, mes amis, is a great excuse for a party, full of wine, dancing and Francophile fun.

Stick out your chin and grin: the musical about the optimistic red-headed orphan opens today at Olney Theatre Center. It runs through Jan. 2, so it's perfectly timed for entertaining the kids during holiday vacation time.
