It’s Monday…

It’s the last full week before Thanksgiving, and while you’re probably trying to stay focused, you know that you need to have a little fun to balance out your study marathons. Here are some ways to do so this week:

  • The cast of 'I Love Lucy.' Photo used under the Creative Commons License.

    Check out the “I Love Lucy: An American Legend” exhibit in the James Madison Building at the Library of Congress. Authentic scripts and photographs from the show will be on display through Jan. 28 in honor of the 60th anniversary of the classic TV show’s premier.

  • Owl City will play an early show at the 9:30 Club Wednesday. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and tickets cost $20.
  • Can’t wait for winter? Get a head start this Saturday when the National Gallery of Art opens its Sculpture Garden and outdoor skating rink, weather permitting. The fee is $7 for students and $3 to rent skates.

And here’s some good news for fashion addicts:
The Versace collection for H&M will be available Saturday. Save up, though, because some of the pieces in the collection will cost close to $300.
