Welcome to your daily Hit List featuring the shows, events, gatherings, and so on that will keep your social life slightly above average!
- Honor our latest devastating celebrity loss by watching Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory on the lawn at Crystal City (RIP, Gene Wilder). Bring a bunch of candy and try not to cry.
- Get your fix of pop hits by catching Meghan Trainor and Hailee Steinfeld at Wolf Trap.
- Fill your house or apartment with a bunch of weird stuff that you find at the Mansion on O Street’s indoor yard sale. Hot tip- if you show up in a costume you get 5% off, and that way you’ll look extra good if you decide to head for dinner or drinks afterwards. Also, costume on a Tuesday? That’s a good selling point?
- Throw on your dancing shoes and run on over to The Jam Cellar for a free, beginners swing dance lessons. Then once you’ve learned your steps stick around and use your new moves for 2 hours of open dancing to hits from the 1930’s and 40’s.
- If you’ve ever wondered whether you’d like yoga better if you were guaranteed a beer right afterwards, you can find out tonight at Port City Brewing’s BeerYoga.
- Head over to Suns Cinema tonight for a FRANK OCEAN LISTENING PARTY. Gird your loins. It starts at 8.
- Catch Television, supported by Chris Stamey, at the 9:30 Club.
- If art is more up your alley, then head over to the National Museum of Women in the Arts for a talk by artist Alison Saar followed by time to wander the gallery and take full advantage of the food and drink included in the $25 ticket ($15 for members of the Museum).
