- It’s the last night of Josh Gosling’s river-based exhibition, “Printed Art: The Potomac,” a series that “illustrates the ‘Nation’s River,’ past and present.” Unwind with some art, you’ve had a long day.

- There’s some FREE short films, part of the Our City Festival, that deal with D.C.’s history of art and gentrification, if you want to educate yourself. Know your city, folks.
- Crystal Screen kicks off their summer espionage movie series with a screening of Mission Impossible. Leave your cash behind, this event is free, but don’t forget to bring your own snacks.
- Or if you’re feeling even more sociable, there’s trivia at Bier Baron for all your eccentric knowledge. You might not make it to Jeopardy, but this is pretty close.
