Here are this weekend's best bets in nightlife, museums, music and much more around the Washington area.

Through Sunday: The District gets a power-conference-size taste of March Madness this weekend as the Big Ten holds its men’s basketball tournament at Verizon Center. The championship game, which could feature No. 3 seed Maryland, tips off Sunday at 3 p.m., just hours before the selection committee reveals the NCAA tournament bracket. Coach Mark Turgeon’s Terps play their first game Friday night, but a full slate of games start at noon with top-seeded Purdue. Times vary. $40-$90.

Friday-Saturday: You'll have to investigate the secondary market to see Ali Wong at the Warner Theatre: The stand-up comedian, who filmed her latest Netflix special, “Baby Cobra,” while she was 7 1/2 months pregnant, has sold out all four of her shows. Which means you probably want to see her even more, right? 7 and 9:30 p.m. Sold out.

Friday-Sunday: With “Objects of Wonder,” the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History is offering a peek into its closets, so to speak, putting on display a number of items rarely seen by visitors to the venerable outpost on the Mall. For example: whale earwax, ancient fossils and the last passenger pigeon. (Her name was Martha.) Open indefinitely. Free.

Friday-Sunday: “June Schwarcz: Invention and Variation” at the Renwick Gallery puts more than 60 pieces from the pioneering and innovative artist on display, some for the first time. June Schwarcz’s enameling incorporated a variety of materials and new techniques — and took inspiration from a number of cultures — as she created sculptures and wall-mounted pieces, bowls, boxes and other vessels well into her 90s. Through Aug. 27. Free.

Friday-Sunday: With “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying” at the Lincoln Theatre, the Gay Men’s Choir of Washington puts its own spin on the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical by Frank Loesser. Friday-Saturday at 7 p.m., Sunday at 2 p.m. $25-$65.

Saturday: Influence the Internet with a purpose at the Wikipedia Edit-a-thon at the National Museum of Women in the Arts. All you need is a laptop to join this collaborative effort to improve Wikipedia pages on notable women in the arts. Tutorial at 10 a.m., editing from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Free.

Saturday: Priests has a record release party at the Black Cat. Washington’s very own surf-inflected, distortion-heavy punk bund waited a half-decade before releasing a full-length record, and “Nothing Feels Natural” debuted in January to universally positive (and some downright glowing) reviews. (For example, The Washington Post called it: “The first great political punk record of a presidency already marked by a full-frontal assault on facts.”) But the band is at its best onstage, where singer Katie Alice Greer howls, growls and wails along with drummer Daniele Daniele, bassist Taylor Mulitz and guitarist G.L. Jaguar. 8 p.m. $16.

Saturday-Sunday: You probably know at least some of George Condo’s work: The artist has designed album covers for such artists as Phish and Kanye West. But there’s a lot more to his portfolio, which you’ll grasp when “George Condo: The Way I Think” opens at the Phillips Collection with more than 200 drawings and paintings. Through June 25. $10-$12.

Saturday-Sunday: The films from Studio Ghibli, the Japanese company founded by Hayao Miyazaki, are among the standard-bearers for animation, having been nominated for multiple Academy Awards — including a win in 2003 with Miyazaki’s “Spirited Away.” That’s just one of the 12 films that will screen during “The Studio Ghibli Collection” at Washington-area Landmark theaters, a month-long, weekends-only festival. Through April 16. Times and ticket prices vary.
