Weekend Outlook

There’s simply too much the District and surrounding area are offering this weekend – from Stephen Colbert to film festivals – for you to merely sit around in Foggy Bottom.

– Comedian, political satirist and media hero Stephen Colbert will host a book signing for “America Again” at Politics and Prose Friday at 3 p.m. Secure a ticket and buy his book beforehand to ensure a spot in line.

– The quick Metro ride to Alexandria is worthwhile if only to experience one of Virginia’s quaintest cities. But take the trip this weekend to enjoy the Alexandria Film Festival. From Nov. 16-18, a variety of documentaries and independent films will be featured, and admission for many of them is free.
