The Tactile Dinner Car is a futuristic experience for the mind and the belly.

(Sept. 13-24) Tactile Dinner Car
For a glimpse into the future look no further than Flashpoint Gallery in Northwest Washington. The Tactile Dinner Car is a “futurist-inspired mobile gastro performance” which means you’ll have a chance to try pizza in a pill-shaped capsule and it will be served to you from a sculpted car that looks something like a Mercedes Roadster from the 22nd century. The multi-sensory experience heads back to the future September 24th.

(Sept. 15-Oct. 2) Stop Kiss
For a present day love story there’s Stop Kiss at the H Street Playhouse in Northeast through early October. A woman falls in love with a woman and together they navigate through a violent attack and the highs and lows that come with big, serious relationships.

(Sept. 16) One more for the Liszt
If your lunch breaks have been lackluster as of late you can spice Friday’s up with Liszt in Italy, a performance at St. Alban’s in Northwest. The Hungarian composer’s bicentennial is celebrated with some of his compositions inspired by Italian artists. 

Music: “Lisztomania (Classixx Remix)” by Phoenix
