After a spooky and event-packed Halloweekend, take a break from the parties with comedy, shopping and a concert.

Friday

If you missed this comic’s appearances on the recently canceled “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore,” now’s your chance to catch his edgy, laid-back humor in stand-up form.

Saturday

Slovak Christmas Market

Get in the Christmas spirit a little early and pick up some unique gifts at the Embassy of the Slovak Republic’s Christmas market.
