Join Iron Gate for their first ever farm dinner benefitting Arcadia Center for Sustainable Food & Agriculture, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating a more equitable and sustainable local food system in the D.C. area. Executive Chef Tony Chittum has created a special, five-course menu using products sourced exclusively through Arcadia’s Mobile Market.

The cocktail reception begins at 6:30 p.m, followed by dinner at 7 p.m. The cost is $120 per person including beverages, excluding tax and gratuity. Please make your reservations by calling them at (202) 524-5202. 1734 N St. N.W., Washington, D.C.

Make your hump days even happier at Cyclone Anaya’s and enjoy their gorgeous and spacious patio–it’s the largest in all of Mosaic District! Happy hour lasts from 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. We are big fans of the bite sized appetizers such as the brisket quesadilla. We recommend the guiltless elderflower mojito–best mojito we’ve ever had! 2911 District Ave., Fairfax VA

Take in a show at Studio Theatre! Tonight’s show is The Father. It follows André, who is 80 years old and a man of his own mind. But things are getting strange: His trusted watch goes missing, reappears, and is lost again. His daughter’s stories don’t quite add up. His furniture is disappearing and there are strangers at his table. Purchase your tickets here. 1501 14th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
