311 and Sublime with Rome bring their blends of chugging rock and sauntering reggae outside, coating the coasts in good vibes on their summer Unity Tour 2011. Known for hits such as “Down” and “Don’t Tread on Me,” 311 inspires legions of fans to bob their heads, nod their feet, and jam city switchboards with reports of dance-induced potholes. Touring behind its latest album, Universal Pulse, 311 provide a rhythm-heavy soundtrack for the summer. Tag-teaming the stage, Sublime with Rome shoots hits from Sublime’s supernal cannon up into the grateful skies, as new frontman Rome Ramirez upholds the seminal band’s legacy with tantamount vocals and a swagger found only in John Wayne’s rasta period.

In 2009, The New York Times named The Camel Richmond's "premier venue" for "up-and-coming Southern rock and bluegrass bands, acoustic singer-songwriters, and jazz and funk musicians." So far, nothing's changed: The Camel still hosts local and nationally touring acts such as Ben Kweller and James McCartney, who, unlike his father, has never toured with a band named after icky bugs. But even though it's lauded for providing live music seven nights a week, The Camel makes a space for all art, including occasional film screenings. Like its entertainment lineup, The Camel's cuisine is an eclectic mix of American flavors. The culinary team, lead by executive chef Xavier Beverly, whips up gourmet vegan risottos, grills fresh seafood, and tops flatbreads with spinach, mushrooms, and hummus. But they also keep things casual with finger foods such as the popular sausage stars and housemade beef burgers crowned with horseradish mayo. Served until 2 a.m. nightly, each dish can be paired with local or craft beers, which fill the 28 taps lining The Camel's exposed brick wall. The Camel is open for lunch Monday through Saturday, and brunch on Sunday.

The Barksdale Theatre puts on professional productions with the intimate and historic Hanover Tavern. Dan Goggin’s Nunsense details the fundraising efforts of the little sisters of Hoboken, who need cash to bury fallen sisters poisoned by the convent cook. This screwball comedy has been outfitted with new jokes, new lyrics, a brand-new song, and a snazzy new bouffant hairdo for the Hanover Tavern stage. Check the schedule for show times. As musical theater is a dish best served alongside edible dishes, reservations for brunch and dinner in the Tavern’s old dining rooms are available separately and offered prior to performances.

THEARC Theater was created out of necessity. The first theater in Ward 8 in Washington, DC, it was founded to provide residents living east of the Anacostia River with expanded cultural opportunities and hide-and-seek spots. Constructed by local nonprofit Building Bridges Across the River, the theater aims to improve the lives of children and adults in southeast Washington through educational, health, and social-service programs such as free theater workshops and youth internships in technical theater management. Noting the tower of glass windows that crowns the entrance, the Washington Post called it "a veritable lighthouse of learning—a $27 million, 110,000-square-foot campus set on 16 beautiful green acres."
