Bring it, 2011.
Tonight, head to Founding Farmers for a viewing party of The Food Network’s “The Best Thing I Ever Ate,” which will feature the restaurant’s now-infamous Devil-ish Eggs. Host Robert Irvine visited the restaurant in June and filmed the episode with Founding Farmer’s executive chef Al Nappo, who made the dish for them from “peeling to plating.” The episode begins at 10 p.m., and they’ll be serving up complimentary Devil-ish Eggs throughout the show. Can’t beat that. 1924 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, Washington, D.C. 20006; (202) 822-8783.
It’s the final weeks of the “Guillermo Kuitca: Everything” exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum, showcasing 30 years of the Argentinean’s work. Cori Sue went over the weekend and absolutely loved it. Make sure you get there this week or next, as it rolls out Jan. 16. 7th Street SW and Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20560; (202) 633-4674.
Hope you RSVP’d early to Yelp’s sold-out “Most Wanted Party” at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment.

This Saturday would have been the King of Rock n’ Roll’s 76th birthday, so celebrate it at “Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club,” a raucous show at the Warehouse Theatre hosted by “Elvis” himself. Fight Club rounds, performances, burlesque entertainers, and Elvis trivia … sounds like a wild time.
