Freestylin’ D.C.: Book Signings, Labyrinth Meditation, and Classical Music

Author Jason Wilson signs will sign his book on Tuesday.

Who doesn't like alcohol? Certainly not Jason Wilson, who signs his book on Tuesday.

Happy Monday everyone. Here's a list of free things to do tonight, tomorrow and Wednesday! These events, and more, can be found on my site, Free in DC.

Tonight
Author William Upski Wimsatt discusses and signs his new book Please Don't Bomb the Suburbs–a sequel to his book Bomb the Suburbs–about the Super Movement theory, which predicts the long-term convergence of progressive social and political movements, at Busboys and Poets 14th & V NW at 6:30 p.m.

Make your way up to College Park and the Clarice Smith Center at the University of Maryland, where the UM School of Music students perform a selection of Robert Schumann's vocal, piano, and chamber work at 8 p.m.

Tuesday
The Friday Morning Music Club's performing on a Tuesday! At noon, catch its free chamber music performance at Dumbarton House in Georgetown.

Head over to the Church of the Epiphany near Metro Center for another free lunchtime concert. This week’s concert features mezzo-soprano Brooke Evers, accompanied by Jeremy Filsell on piano, performing a selection of modern composers' work.

Author Jason Wilson presents Boozehound at 6:30 p.m. at Borders 18th & L NW. Part travelogue, part spirits history, and part recipe collection, the book explores lesser-known, forgotten, and misunderstood spirits from around the world.

Over in NoMa, check out the grand opening celebration for the Loree Grand at Union Place, a new apartment building at 250 K St. NE, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The event's free, but RSVP is requested.

Wednesday
Looking to get centered? You're in luck if you work near Metro Center. Every Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., you can head over to the Church of the Epiphany to walk the labyrinth. If you haven’t tried this ancient form of walking meditation, I definitely recommend it–those of you who sit all day will probably find it especially beneficial.

At another great reoccurring event–which takes place every Wednesday and Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.–you can enjoy a free wine tasting at Zola Wine & Kitchen, located downtown at 9th & E NW.

Every first and third Wednesday along the H Street Corridor, those 21 and up can don their most fabulous wigs for Kostume Karaoke, an evening of singing and silliness, at Little Miss Whiskey's Golden Dollar from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m.
