Free and Easy: ‘Wizards in Dreamland,’ Rockville Antique and Classic Car Show, Korean drama-watching party

The Rockville Antique and Classic Car Show is next weekend. (City of Rockville)

The Going Out Guide recommends free things to do for every day of the week.


Double Feature Mondays

Hit Comic Ping Pong for Double Feature Mondays, an October film series of spooky and funny Halloween movies. Admission is free (and so is the candy), and they're offering a few wallet-friendly drink specials. From "Hocus Pocus" to "Halloween," Comet Ping Pong has you covered.

8:30 p.m. Comet Ping Pong, 5037 Connecticut Ave. NW. 202-364-0404.


'Wizards in Dreamland'

Looking for something to entertain the kids? As part of Kids Euro Festival 2013, a troupe of Hungarian mimes performs a piece about a wizard and his assistant on a journey.

6 p.m. Kennedy Center, 2700 F St. NW. 202-467-4600.


Author talk: Jo Baker

There are a few too many reincarnations of "Pride and Prejudice" (including one with zombies), but this one sounds really interesting. Instead of focusing on the Bennet family and their love lives, Jo Baker's "Longbourn" tells the story of Sarah, an orphaned housemaid in the Bennet home who is striving to understand her place in society and her relationship with a former slave at a nearby estate. Hear Baker talk about her book at Politics and Prose.

7 p.m. Politics and Prose, 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. 202-364-1919.


'Burundi in the Balance'

Fathom Gallery, a new cultural space in the Logan Circle neighborhood, hosts a screening of Chad Bartlett's photos of life in Burundi and the clinics that receive support from LifeNet International.

7:30 p.m. Fathom Creative Gallery, 1333 14th St. NW. 202-588-8100.


Jazz and hula-hooping

Get things shaking, literally, at this participatory event at Dance Place. Join musician Freddie Dunn and Carla Perlo, founding director of Dance Place, for an evening of jazz and hula-hooping.

5:30 p.m. Dance Place, 3225 Eighth St. NE. 202-269-1600.


Antique and classic car show

Korean drama-watching party

Hosted by the Runcible Spoon, this "K-pop-inspired afternoon" offers a screening of the first episode of the South Korean romantic comedy "Flower Boy Ramyun Shop," plus plenty of good drinks and eats from Boba DC and Los Verracos for sale.
