Weekend Agenda: FotoWeek's Finale & A Binge-Worthy Brunch

If a jam-packed schedule has kept you from checking out DC FotoWeek's awe-inspiring exhibition, clear your calendar and get moving, because today's your very last chance to catch it. Until 6 p.m. at the 18th Street NW “Foto Central” hub, you’ll have access to 14 individual fine art and photojournalism exhibitions. In addition to shots with a local angle, the must-see of the bunch is the White House News Photographers Association's Eyes of History 2011 exhibition — these are powerful images from all over the globe that will have you thinking and starting conversations for days. Got relatives in town already? This is a guaranteed winner. Same if you just want a daytime date that's way more interesting than the usual dinner and a movie. With a $5 ticket, you're pretty much golden.
When: Today, from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
Where: Fotoweek Central, 1800 L Street NW; 202-337-3686.
