To Do This Weekend: Staying Inside Edition

It looks to be a rainy weekend, but don’t let that get you down — there’s plenty to do inside.


  • It’s the closing night for the Arlington Players production of Mel Brooks’ “The Producers.” The show starts at 8:00 p.m. at the Thomas Jefferson Community Center (120 S. Old Glebe Road).
  • Jennifer Coolidge, a.k.a. Stifler’s mom from the American Pie movies, will be performing live stand-up comedy at the Arlington Drafthouse (2903 Columbia Pike), starting at 9:30 p.m.


  • Toscana Grill (2300 Clarendon Blvd) is holding a “Bring Your Dog to Brunch Day.” From 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., dog owners can enjoy a vegetarian brunch while Fido chows down on treats from a local vegan dog food company.
  • Lord of the Rings fans can watch all three films on the big screen at the Arlington Drafthouse’s LOTR Movie Festival (2903 Columbia Pike). There will also be a Gollum impersonation contest and awards for the best costume. Taking place from noon to 10:00 p.m. — ten hours worth of middle-earthly fun for $8.

For those bold enough to wander outside, the annual Friends of the Library Book Sale will be taking place at the Arlington Central Library parking garage (1015 N. Quincy St.) and volunteers are needed to help a Girl Scout project at Glencarlyn Park (South Harrison St. and 4th St. S.).

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.

The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.

Former participants have this to say:

_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
