Jazzy valentine

Wednesday

Movie night with a bonus

Sample the cooking of Taiwanese chef Hou Chun-sheng — winner of the 2011 Taipei Beef Noodle Soup Competition — before a screening of Ang Lee’s Oscar-nominated 1994 film, “Eat Drink Man Woman.”

Friday

Race for the White House

As we enter the horse race portion of the 2012 presidential campaign, the Newseum unveils “Every Four Years,” an exhibition detailing the evolution of the quest for the White House, from William McKinley’s 1896 campaign through the Obama-McCain 2008 race.

Thursday-Saturday

Montserrat’s pho pop-up

[EDITOR’S NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.] After a pop-up preview of the upcoming restaurant Chez Billy, Montserrat House hosts Pho U, a three-day-only restaurant dedicated to all things Vietnamese.

Friday-Saturday

Chappelle’s sidekick

“Chappelle’s Show” wasn’t a one-man operation. Neal Brennan was a co-creator and writer of the sketch comedy classic, and he provided Dave Chappelle with many of his best lines. Watch him do standup at Arlington Cinema ‘N’ Drafthouse.
