The sound of spending
It’s Amazon Prime Day … or rather “days.” Burn a few extra holes in your pocket on Monday and Tuesday, because #deals and #whynot?
Get off the bench

Lions, tigers… IPAs
Sample more than 70 craft beers (if you like a challenge) at the National Zoo on Thursday. The Smithsonian hosts its annual Brew at the Zoo, which raises money for its conservation efforts. Don’t worry if craft beers aren’t your thing: Pabst will be available in the VIP area.
If it makes you happy
For everyone who’s ever found themselves in a karaoke bar at 1 a.m. singing a duet of “Picture,” there’s Thursday night at Wolf Trap. Listen to the smooth country-rock stylings of Sheryl Crow, who’ll preview her upcoming album “Threads,” scheduled for release Aug. 30. Tickets start at $45.
