Post Date: April 04, 2011

There’s more to the week than nightlife. Although it’s our favorite part of the day, we know there’s so much more to do, which is why we’re providing you with a guide of what to do before the party, or just during the day in general.


Charlie SheenCheck out “Charlie Sheen LIVE: My Violent Torpedo of Truth” at DAR Constitution Hall

Charlie Sheen might be known as the king of controversy, the warlock of bad decisions, winning chef, and more. Now you can see him live in DC at DAR Constitutional Hall.

Will he do anything crazy? Bring nutty guests? Cook a steak seasoned with cigarettes? Who knows, you have to go to find out! The warlock himself will be live at 8pm.

Need tickets? Grab them here via $1 per ticket will be donated to the Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund. See, who says Charlie Sheen is a bad person? He gives back!


American History MuseumVisit the American History Museum

Okay, we know it sounds a little lame, but how often do you really explore the culture right in your back yard? If you’re a history buff or just haven’t seen it yet, there’s something for everyone. And hey, it’s forecasted to be a dreary day complete with thunderstorms so what else would you really want to do during the day?

There are some great exhibitions at the American History Museum right now. You’d probably be surprised how much you can learn about the nation’s history without even traveling.


Watch An Orioles GameGuthrie Pitch

It may be a treck, and the nationals are closer, but everyone needs to go to an Orioles baseball game every once and a while. Thursday they play the Minnesota Twins at 7:05pm. This matchup the O’s try to make their fourth win after eight losses while the Twins try to break a losing streak.

Cameron of The Downtown Fiction may just want to run but we’re all glad they’re coming to DC. Featured on Sirius Hits 1 and radio stations around the country, “I Just Wanna Run” is their biggest hit but you’ll get to hear many more this Saturday.

This group is based out of Fairfax, Virginia helping highlight the local music scene on an international level! Opening bands are He Is We, Cady Groves, and Amely.
