Seeing Double: Phillips after 5
1600 21st St., NW
No need to do a double take — Phillips celebrates Van Gogh's own copy-cat paintings at event. Attendees can guffaw at look-a-likes with food and drink in hand while enjoying the musical stylings of The Redd Brothers. If you're on the hunt for a doppelgänger (and maybe a prize), enter the find-your-twin contest. If you already have a doppelgänger bring 'em on in for free admission.

Free Art Friday DC
One man’s art is another man’s found treasure, so they say. Dust off your favorite detective hat and search the city streets for local, original art. It could be anywhere: in the trees, by the fire hydrant, behind that 'No Trespassing' sign (maybe don't check there), so keep them eyes peeled. The FAFDC tag clues you in to what’s free for the taking. Sleuths in need of a hint can turn to twitter for tips on where to look.

Can you say Bill Cosby dance-off? The colorful electronic trio, Cosby Sweater, is opening for Lotus, providing a prime opportunity to pull out that jazzy knit we've been hoarding. That’s right, son – it will be an evening of dance and post-rock bliss better than any puddin’ cup.
