It’s going to be a short but busy week for all of us Washingtonians. Whether you’re planning to hibernate for the inauguration or fully embrace the madness, we’ve got something for everyone.
Spend the night with Studio Theatre seeing The Hard Problem. The play follows Hilary, a young psychology researcher at the prestigious Krohl Institute for Brain Science. As she and her colleagues grapple with the ‘hard problem’ of defining consciousness, a thorny decision from Hilary’s past fuels her controversial stances—and a few suspect choices. Bristling with intellectual energy and searing wit, The Hard Problem explores the difference between our brains and our minds, the nature of belief, and how to reconcile hard science with lived experience. Purchase your tickets here for the 8 p.m. show. 1501 14th St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Spend the night on Barracks Row and visit our go-to Italian spot–Lavagna–for half-priced wine night! Every Tuesday and Sunday night you can enjoy your Italian fare with a delicious bottle of wine for half the price.
