Weekend update: Bromance is in the air

(Randy Mays)
Look, we all know romance is tricky: From choosing whether to call or text (and when!) to picking the perfect first-date activity or dinner spot for a particular occasion. It’s seriously easy to douse the fireworks before they can ignite, but when everything goes off without a hitch, it’s a beautiful thing. Thankfully, the same pitfalls do not apply to the ever-important pursuit of your bromance: In today’s Weekend section, we painstakingly examine the various ways guys can show their bromantic partners just how much they mean to them.

Here’s what else you’ll find in today’s Weekend:

The best events for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, including a lecture by Salman Rushdie, an all-you-can-eat oyster roast, D.C. United’s season opener and fundraisers for Japan.

•Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears talk about getting their big break thanks to Britt Daniel of the influential indie-rock band Spoon.

•Reviews of new music by Fujiya & Miyagi (Thursday at Rock & Roll Hotel); Rodney Crowell (Sunday at the Birchmere); Devotchka (Tuesday at 9:30 Club) and Apex Manor (Monday at Red Palace).

•Much to the relief of corned beef and pastrami fans, Loeb’s NY Deli is back in business at a new downtown location.

Pioneering DNA researcher Rosalind Franklin gets her due in Theater J’s “Photograph 51.”

At the movies this weekend, Ann Hornaday gives “Of Gods and Men” four stars.
