I've been waiting for the combination of Faccia Luna's 1/2-price Tuesday wine night and Iota's 9 Songwriter Series and we finally have it! You can either meet us at FL, a longtime favorite in the Clarendon area, at 6:30 (or after) OR at Iota, another Clarendon fixture, at around 7:45. Faccia Luna has good pizza, salad, mussels and sandwiches, all reasonably priced - and all wines are half-price, making for some good deals!
The 9 Songwriter Series has been hugely popular, moving to other venues and cities, and even spawning the 9 Comedy Series. Their home is Facebook where they list the night's singers. All are capable of their own concerts - here they alternate with 1 or 2 songs each for a couple go-arounds. It costs $10. I've heard of and seen a few of the singers, most notably Ruut and Justin Trawick, who started the whole thing.
The Clarendon Metro is a couple blocks west, and street parking is available (careful of signs!). THere's also an easy garage on Highland Street.
