Friday Nights from Home Concert Series
While the Capitol Riverfront BID’s concert series is virtual this summer, it’s still a great way to enjoy music from your favorite local artists at home. To add to the fun, Bonchon Navy Yard, Ice Cream Jubilee*, Slipstream DC, and Wiseguy Pizza will be offering a special 10% discount on all pick up onlyfood orders between 5-8 P.M., while menu items last. This Friday’s show features music from Justin Trawick. Free to tune in, 7-8 p.m.
While not quite the same as the now-cancelled summer olympics, you can still capture the competitive spirit of the games with DC Fray’s assortment of activities like the quarantine scavenger hunt, flip cup, a brainiac trivia challenge and pong relay. Teams of two cost $30 to register, three players cost $36 and four players cost $40. Games begin at 12 p.m. www.dcfray.com
Pride and Peace: Meditations on Activism

This class is donation based and all proceeds go to Whitman-Walker Health. 6:30 p.m.
