Labor Day! Don’t you love having a day off? Okay, so I have had a lot of days off but you employed people should take advantage! The Smithsonians are open today so go take a look at all those exhibits you keep telling yourself you should see but don’t.

Shakespeare: This is the last week of the Shakespeare Theatre Company’s Free for All. I will be going to see the Taming of the Shrew tonight. Go here for info and the schedule: http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/about/ffa/index.aspx

Film and Discussion: The Goethe Institute is showing the soon to be released The Baader Meinhof Complex / Der Baader-Meinhof Komplex and then having a discussion on it. If I didn’t have plans already, I would be here in a heartbeat both because I love German and I have a strange interest in terrorist organizations. More info here:  http://www.goethe.de
