BBQ, Beer & a Relaxing Float Down the Potomac

Buy Tickets $69 $107

Take a second and picture your perfect summer escape from the hustle and bustle of D.C. Now, we’re not mind readers, but it’s probably a fair guess that your summer fantasy included cold beer, barbecue and an afternoon of lazy shenanigans on a major body of water. And if that’s the case, you’re in luck — because that fantasy can become a reality on the River Tubing and Brewery Tour. On the day of the trip, your only responsibility is meeting the bus at one of the pickup locations — and after that, all you’ve got to do is take it easy. The bus will whisk you away to a three-hour river tubing experience where you — and your floating cooler, if you want to bring one — will drift down the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. Once you’ve had your fill, hop out of the river for a hearty BBQ lunch, followed by a quick drive over to the award winning Vanish Farmhouse Brewery.

In this outrageous satire about stereotypes, political correctness flies out the window as two Chinese-American siblings search for their authentic selves. Albert Chen is a computer programmer so modest he lets others take credit for his work. His sister Jennifer, a doctor, is so professionally driven she can’t sustain a relationship (even if she could find someone worthy of her work ethic). Despite their Ivy League educations, musical virtuosity and impeccable manners, the siblings mount a delayed adolescent rebellion against their disappointed Tiger Mother (and equally demanding Tiger Father). They embark on an “Asian Freedom Tour” that takes them to the People’s Republic of China, where the tour goes — no spoilers — terribly wrong. By Mike Lew. Directed by Natsu Onoda Power.

Ally Theatre Company is proud to present the first show of our third season, Naomi Wallace’s The War Boys as directed by Matt Ripa. In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border. But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.

Southwest D.C. Walk Reveals the Triumphs & Tragedies of Urban Renewal

Buy Tickets $10 $20

In the 1960s, “urban renewal” was the hope of the future for revitalizing ailing cities or districts within cities. The unfortunate side effect of many of these projects was to destroy the character of neighborhoods and displace their residents. In Washington D.C., the epicenter for this phenomenon was a large swath of the Southwest. While the project did away with what remained of the 19th century architecture in the area, it was replaced with high-quality projects from architects like Chloethiel Woodard Smith, who used the vocabulary of modernism to design enduring residential communities. These designs exemplify why planners placed great hope in redevelopment, and as the buildings come of age, it’s the perfect time to explore the area with Washington Walks. Along the way, you can reflect on what might be worth preserving and gain inspiration from the successful restorations of Arena Stage and the former Marina View Towers. Your guide will also identify what has already been lost and delve into the implications of urban renewal as the city moves into the future.

Led by Rear Admiral George Cockburn, British soldiers marched methodically from site to site, setting fire to government buildings.

Follow the path of the British during this walking tour that brings to life the incredible story of the nation’s capital, its brave citizens and an infamous night during the War of 1812.

Walking Tour of Brookland, the Little Rome of D.C.

Buy Tickets $10 $20

Brookland has always been a middle-class community offering families a secure, neighborly home. Originally the farm of Colonial Jehial Brooks, the area developed as an early suburb northeast of downtown Washington following his death in 1886. Although early Brookland was mostly white — and mostly segregated in work, play and society — it always had black residents, many leaders in their field. When the Catholic University of America was established in the area in 1885, the numerous study houses, monasteries and convents that chose to locate nearby inspired the place name “Little Rome.” This stroll along Brookland’s tree-lined streets includes: The original Jehial Brooks mansion; the former home of Sterling Brown, considered the “Dean of African American Poets”; 12th Street — Brookland’s “Main Street” — which retains its 1920s look and feel; and the Franciscan Monastery of the Holy Land in America, home to beautiful gardens, an impressive Byzantine-style church, and replicas of Christian pilgrimage sites in Israel. At the monastery, participants can opt to either stay on for a docent-led tour of the church (or simply stay to explore on the building and grounds on their own) or discover a few more neighborhood sites with the guide and concluding back at the walk start point.

The Capitol Steps: Songs & Skits Skewer Politics

Buy Tickets $26 $36

With jokes aimed at both ends of the political spectrum — and pretty much all of the middle, too — musical-comedy group The Capitol Steps has been eliciting laughs at democracy’s expense since 1981. If you’ve ever wanted to see Joe Biden sing a show tune, Donald Trump sing a rock song and Vladimir Putin dance shirtless, this is the show for you. The Steps’ stage show features numerous song parodies and skits, and the cast even includes some former Congressional staffers, whose firsthand experience helps make the jokes zing that much more. This legendary troupe’s recorded more than 30 albums, and their radio specials are featured on NPR stations nationwide four times a year, but there’s nothing like experiencing their cutting-edge comedy live at DC’s Ronald Reagan Building.
