$5 – $10 – $20: An entertainment guide for the cash-strapped college student

If you have $5

Keep it and take a trip to Anacostia, Md., and head to the Honfleur Gallery at 1241 Good Hope Rd., S.E. Up until Saturday, the gallery will be featuring an exhibit called “No Scratchers” that focuses on the work of local tattoo artists. Honfleur seems to be looking to examine the myriad canvases on which art can exist, even when those canvases happen to by human bodies.

If you have $10

Grab two more (we’re saving you money on the other two this week) and head to Mount Vernon (the real one) to celebrate the birthday of our school’s namesake this Saturday or Sunday (or if you don’t have Monday class, you can get in for free that day). Get off at Huntington Station and catch the Fairfax Connector to the home of our first president, where you can enjoy breakfast and parades. Festivities begin at 9 a.m.

If you have $10

Put on your bandanas and too-tight jeans Saturday and catch the Metro to the State Theatre in Falls Church, Va. (at 220 N. Washington, less than a mile from the East Falls Church stop). The real Bruce Springsteen might be busy identifying with the common man somewhere else , but you can at least get a sense of why your dad has a man-crush on New Jersey’s finest export by enjoying a set by tribute band Bruce in the USA. Tickets are $16.
