So you’re still with us, DC? You haven’t flown away yet? Well you’re in luck, cause believe it or not, DC is still kicking with activity. So while the Metro might be more deserted (hello, empty seat on the Orange line during rush hour, where have you been all my life?) there’s still plenty of last-minute holiday fun to be had. The Kennedy Center is hosting a sing-along rendition of Handel’s “Messiah” tonight, and the always-free Millenium stage is hosting the Peace Ringers, a handbell choir, playing holiday music on traditional handbells. I repeat, for free.
The National Gallery of Art is hosting a gallery talk today, “Reading the Christmas Story in Art” which sounds just like my FABULOUS art history class from college. Starts in the West Rotunda at 11 a.m. so make it your festive lunch break. It’s not like your boss is here to notice, let’s be real.
If you’re in the mood for some live music that’s a little more raucous than the KC, Iota in Arlington has the Hometown Holiday Benefit Gala featuring tons of local artists.
Oh, and while you’re out there, bring your camera and don’t forget to enter all your holiday photos in our HOLIDAY PHOTO CONTEST (!) to win some fabulous prizes.
