Get off campus this weekend and try some of these fun events the District has to offer.

Thursday:

Check out Corcoran Art Gallery’s exhibit, “30 Americans,” before it closes Sunday. The exhibit features the work of African-American artists from the past 30 years. Tickets are $8 for students.

Friday:

See the Nakatani Gong Orchestra, led by percussionist Tatsuya Nakatani, perform at the Kennedy Center at 6 p.m.

Saturday:

Go see Cupid’s Undie Run and watch participants complete a 1.1-mile lap wearing just their underwear. The race begins at 2 p.m. after pre-race festivities hosted at the Pour House and the Capitol Lounge next door. Though registration for the race is sold out, you can still go and cheer on the scantily clad runners.
