I grew up playing Pac Man, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders. Now a days the kids are playing Madden football and The Legend of Zelda. This weekend is the Smithsonian’s annual celebration of video games. You can play new and old video games!  For two days, the Penn Quarter museum transforms into the world’s most beautiful arcade. It is free 11:30am-7PM Saturday and Sunday. The best thing? You don't need quarters because it's free. For more information click here.

I've always loved Disney cartoons, even before I had kids of my own I enjoyed them.  Now you can live Disney's Aladdin as it comes to the big stage at the Kennedy Center's Opera House.  It's full of what you would expect -- tons of glitz and glitter and of course amazing musical numbers.  This is the big Broadway show without the hassle of going to New York.  And tickets are relatively reasonable for a Broadway show as they range from $39-$179.00.  Just a note for you if you have young kids, this is a long show.  The running time is two-and-a-half hours, so some kids might not make it, but it will make a fantastic date night.

It's one of DC's longest running sports traditions - the Citi Open wraps up on Sunday at the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center. It's a place where hoards of fans gather for a nine-day top-tier tennis event. Every seat in the house has a great view! Some elite tennis starts will be competing including Coco Gauff. You'll often find clinics available for all age ranges, and great food! 

Tickets run from $25 to $120. For more information click here.
