ToDo ToDay: Mom Baby God, Toro y Moi, and Yip Deceiver
This week, explore the anti-abortion movement without having to deal with Values Voter Summit crazies. For two nights, Mom Baby God plays a theatrical game of devil’s advocate. The play, written by Madeline Burrows, probes the mindsets of the people campaigning to limit women’s reproductive rights. Attendees will receive nametags upon arrival, and for the next two hours, they can pretend to be right there fightin’ the fight alongside the Duggars and Rick Santorum.

D.C.-area Chipotle shops have a new protein item for vegetarians beginning today: sofritas. The spicy shredded tofu, made by California-based Hodo Soy, is braised with chipotle chilies, roasted poblanos, and other spices. Like all the meats, you can get it in burritos, bowls, tacos, and salads. Chipotle, all local locations. chipotle.com. (Jessica Sidman)
