MONSTER MOVES: OK, monsters, time to break out your wackiest getup and channel the queen of the pop charts herself, Lady Gaga. Learn how to dance Gaga-style at the Gaga 4 Gaga Workshop with Quynn at the Joy of Motion Dance Center at Atlas (1333 H St. N.E.). Learn choreography influenced by videos like "Telephone," "Love Game" and "Paparazzi." Dancers of all levels are invited embrace their inner popstar. While Gaga-inspired ensembles are encouraged, you may want to leave the heel-less platforms at home. 7-9 p.m.; $25 in advance; $30 day of.
SWEET THINGS: Indulge your sweet tooth at Cupcakes & Cocktails at Fly Lounge (1802 Jefferson Place N.W.). The frosted frenzy has hit the nightlife circuit. Think of it as a night on the town with an added bonus (namely, cupcakes). C'mon, we all know how Washingtonians feel about their cupcakes. Sip signature martinis, while delighting in Fly's sweet pairings. Think a white chocolate martini with a strawberry cupcake or an apple-elderberry 'tini with a vanilla cupcake. What's more, the ladies receive a free cupcake and cocktail pairing. 10 p.m.-midnight; no cover.
SAVE THE EMPIRE: Travel back in time at Rosslyn's Outdoor "I Love the '90s" movie series at Gateway Park (1330 Lee Highway, Arlington). Cozy up with blankets in your lawn chair for some vintage Renée Zellweger and Liv Tyler in "Empire Records" (1995). Doc Martens and head-shaving are totally optional. Arrive early for an added bonus: '90s-themed games and prizes. Scrunchies, anyone? Dusk; free.
