Weekend Update: Get to know Eastern Market, Barracks Row
In today's Weekend section, we take a look at the heart of Capitol Hill -- specifically, the intimate bistros and book shops of Eastern Market, and the rapid commercial development that's revitalizing Barracks Row. Click through and walk along with us, or browse photos of the area's can't-miss dishes and spots.
Here's the rest of what you'll find inside Weekend:
• Among our best bets for the days ahead, enjoy free dance lessons, soak up some jazz, have your kids learn about the principles of thermodynamics and mechanical engineering and get your groove on at the National Museum of African Art's first after-hours dance party.
• If the Low Anthem's newest album, "Smart Flesh," sounds lonely, blame the production space: The band took to an abandoned warehouse to record, in search of supreme musical authenticity.
• Living up to its title, "Eye Wonder: Photography From the Bank of America Collection'' is an eye-popping survey of photography by women from 1865 to 2004. See it at the National Museum of Women in the Arts.
• In "Basra Boy," Keegan Theatre's new production, a teen aches to join the army, if only to escape the boredom and sheer claustrophobia of small-town life.
• There's more to the City of Brotherly Love than Philly Cheesesteaks.
• Liam Neeson find himself facing the unlikely career second act of middle-aged action star in "Unknown."
• While jaw-dropping footage of the animals of the African bush is a remarkable aspect of "The Last Lions," more impressive still is the strong narrative thread that runs through the nature documentary.
• "I Am Number Four" could also plausibly be titled, "I Am Worth One Star."
