If you have $5

You won’t find Julia Roberts, the hooker with a heart of gold, at the Freer Gallery on the Mall, but you will find “Pretty Women” – an art exhibit of paintings that examine feminine beauty from the collection of founder Charles Freer, who must have been quite a ladies’ man.

Relive your high school glory days of cruising around with the top down – or at least pretend to – at this weekend’s Washington Auto Show. Chances are, the 700 new cars from makers such as Aston Martin, Rolls Royce and Lamborghini are better than that old Volvo jalopy you drove around in anyway.

If you have $20
