Take a break from studying before we kick the semester into high gear. During the first weekend of October, watch a movie in Navy Yard, log into a stand-up comedy show and explore nature around the city.
Flicks & Rose movie night at The Bullpen
The Bullpen is usually a hot pregame spot for Nationals games. But with the baseball team restricting fans, the outdoor bar and vendor area is repurposing its space into a movie theater on the weekends. Advertised as “socially distant movies in the city,” Flick + Rose is using a contactless check-in, replacing bar service with food and beverage delivery staff and placing 100 picnic tables that sit six people each. This weekend, you can kick back and watch “Black Panther” on Friday or “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” on Sunday.
The Bullpen, 1201 Half St. SE. Tickets range from $15 to $20 per person (includes complimentary popcorn.) Arrive by 7 p.m., movies start as early as 8 p.m.
‘Comedy Crossing,’ an Animal Crossing-themed stand-up show
Hosted by comedian Jenny Yang, Stand-up Comedy Crossing is a free show hosted on Zoom and inspired by the viral video game Animal Crossing. Anyone over the age of 18 is invited to tune into the event, even if they do not play the video game. The show will feature comedians Chris Fairbanks, Dana Donnelly, Chris Bryant and Dewayne Perkins. The show is free but donations to Yang’s Venmo will be contributed to “Black Lives Matter related causes.”
Online via Zoom link. Attendees must RSVP by 6:55 p.m. and log into the event by 7:10 p.m. More information can be found here.
A trip to the Tregaron Conservancy
Immerse yourself in nature without leaving D.C. by visiting the Tregaron Conservancy in Cleveland and Woodley parks.

Take advantage of open spaces and scenic areas to set up a picnic, have a mini photoshoot or play with your dog. Dogs are welcome on leashes, but bikes must be locked at the entrance bike rack.
