Crap, it’s a long weekend and I don’t know what to do with my honey

The holiday weekend approaches and I know some of you are saying ot yourselves, “self, what fun things should me and my sweetie do this weekend”. Well District beat has some quick tips for you:

  • Les Miserables: If you haven’t seen it yet, now is the time. I wrote before about how good it was, and now GoldStar is offering half price tickets. It’s only playing through the 22 so GO SEE IT.
  • Avenue Q: It’s playing at the Warner Theater through Sunday. They are doing student rush 2 hours before the show with $25 tickets (with a $5 service charge). You can also get $10 off with a student ID if you want to get tickets in advance. The last time I checked I had heard that they were sold out on Saturday, but not Sunday. Lady AWesome went today and loved it (I’d already seen it 2x). It’s a blast if you’ve never seen it.
  • A Delicate Balance: The new play at Arena is Edward Albee’s A Delicate Balance. It is supposed to be good and there are a ton of ways to see shows there for cheap. There are a limited number of $25 tickets for every show, and there are rush and student tickets, so call the box office and see what they can do for you. Also, Goldstar has $30 tix.
  • Restaurant week: Lunches for restaurant week are a great deal, ($20) but you always need a nap after. That’s why we’re going on president’s day. Make your reservations now on Open Table.

These are just a few thoughts. There’s a ton going on this weekend. And almost every theater in DC has something good playing right now. So, get out of this house this weekend and hit the city. And, if you do anything fun, tell us about it in the comments.
