Weekend update: D.C. trivia

By Alex Baldinger

Why, hello there, Grave Digger. (Sarah L Voisin/The Washington Post)

How well do you think you know the city? Find out in today's Weekend section. Try our city smarts quiz on for size and find out whether you're as smart as: A) a tourist, B) a lobbyist, C) a Secret Service agent or D) the 'Mayor for Life.'

Here's the rest of what you can find inside today's paper:

Our best bets for the weekend and beyond, including a monster truck rally (see, uh, above), a radio play about the H-bomb, a swarm of crazy Marylanders bellyflopping into the Chesapeake and the Soundry's outre variety show, Art Carnage.

• A review of Redline GastroLounge and Bar across from the Verizon Center, a spot Fritz Hahn found to be a bit less-than-memorable.

• Reviews of new music by The Radio Dept; The Moondoggies; Sahara Smith; Kristin Hersh; and Laughing Man.

• Looking for a sweet escape from the city? Why, it's Hershey, Pa., home of chocolate and the Calder Cup champion Hershey Bears!

"America I Am" at the National Geographic Museum proves to be a comprehensive survey of the African American experience without being superficial.

Javier Bardem lives up to the Oscar buzz in "Biutiful," while "The Mechanic" has a sputter here and there but otherwise seems to be running just fine. "The Rite", on the other hand, is all sorts of wrong.
