The Going Out Gurus recommend free things to do for every day of the week:
Don‚Äôt let Monday get you down; dance your stress away at Lima. Every week, the club offers free admission and free salsa lessons. The DJ spins tunes until 1 a.m., so there‚Äôs plenty of time to get into the groove.
9 p.m. Lima, 1401 K St. NW. 202-789-2800. limarestaurant.com.
Maybe there‚Äôs no such thing as a free lunch, but free wine? Definitely. It doesn‚Äôt cost a thing to stop by Bistrot Lepic this evening for a few sips and to learn about a vineyard or two.
6 p.m. Bistrot Lepic, 1736 Wisconsin Ave. NW. 202-333-0111. www.bistrotlepic.com.
China is not especially welcoming to Western religions, and not many Africans live there. Yet ‚ÄúMy Father‚Äôs House,‚ÄĚ a documentary by Zhao Dayong and David Bandursky, captured the experiences of a small, evangelical African community in Guangzhou, exploring the cultural and political challenges.
Do you love the taste of bibimbap and japchae? If you‚Äôre a big fan, or if you‚Äôve never heard of the dishes, the Fairfax Academy‚Äôs celebration of Korea would be a good place to learn more. The cultural festival offers Korean food, music and dance.
6:30 p.m. Stacy C. Sherwood Community Center, 3740 Old Lee Hwy., Fairfax. 703- 352-2787. www.visitfairfax.com.
There‚Äôs nothing like funk to get bodies in motion. DJ Nitekrawler knows this, and he digs through crates of obscure records to find the best soul and vintage funk for a dance-loving crowd at his monthly DJ night at Little Miss Whiskey‚Äôs.
10 p.m. Little Miss Whiskey‚Äôs Golden Dollar, 1104 H St. NE. littlemisswhiskeys.com.
Classic video games are memorable not just for their bad guys and battles, but also for their soundtracks. Once a semester, the student Gamer Symphony Orchestra at the University of Maryland performs an array of beloved old-school scores ‚ÄĒ from ‚ÄúFinal Fantasy‚ÄĚ to ‚ÄúChrono Trigger.‚ÄĚ
2 p.m. Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center at the University of Maryland, University Boulevard and Stadium Drive, College Park. 301-405-2787. www.claricesmithcenter.umd.edu.
It can be tough to find time to relax at home, but on Sunday, there‚Äôs an easy solution. As the culmination of D.C.‚Äôs annual Yoga Week, crowds will gather on the Mall to stretch together. The event is suitable for entry-level and advanced yoga fans.
11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Constitution Gardens, near the Vietnam Memorial. [NOTE: Location has changed from the Sylvan Theater.] 202-619-7222. www.dccy.org/dc-yoga-week.
