You may have been stuck inside all week attending virtual classes, but kick off the weekend back in the District with a lineup of activities to get back in the swing of the spring semester.

Win prizes at an online trivia night with your friends Friday, relax at a yoga class with goats from a nearby farm on Saturday and peruse a new virtual contemporary art exhibit from the Hirshhorn Museum Sunday.

Friday

Virtual Trivia Night

Start off the weekend participating in an online trivia night with your friends for a chance to win prizes. Topics include pop culture, sports, history, news and geography, and some questions will even be asked about other contestants. Teams of four to 10 people will be created from the pool of participants, and if you register with a group, you’ll be teamed up together. The event will take place on Zoom.

Virtual registration. 8:30 to 10:30 p.m. Tickets are $15. Find more information here.

Saturday

Goat Yoga

Spend your Saturday afternoon at the Faith Lutheran Church indoor community center practicing yoga with a twist. Enjoy your class alongside goats, who are curious and interested to explore around the class. During your mellow exercise, goats from Walnut Creek Farm will accompany you and be available for cuddles and pictures during the session. The session is open to participants of all skill levels. Proof of vaccination is required.

Faith Lutheran Church, 3313 Arlington Blvd., Arlington, Va. 22201. 1 to 2 p.m. Tickets are $40. Find more information here.

Sunday

“It’s Art If I Say So” – Marcel Duchamp’s Legacy in the Hirshhorn Collection

Round out your weekend with a virtual exhibit from the Hirshhorn Museum this Sunday. Examine the ways French artist Marcel Duchamp transformed contemporary art through more than 50 works of art, including 35 of Duchamp’s influential pieces. The exhibition explores four themes seen in Duchamp’s art: found objects, appropriation, art as an idea and optical experiments. Through these themes, reflect on how Duchamp’s artistic practices influenced artists for generations to come.

Virtual exhibit. Free. Find more information here.
