"Tell Me Something I Don't Know" Live: Tell Me Something I Don’t Know is a live game show and podcast hosted by Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books and host of Freakonomics Radio. It has the same kind of factual, inquisitive journalism that has been a hallmark of Dubner’s work, but it’s disguised in the most entertaining, unexpected, and occasionally ridiculous conversation you’re likely to hear. Three celebrity panelists listen as contestants come on stage before a live audience and try to wow them with a fascinating fact — a historical wrinkle, a new line of research — anything, really, as long as it’s interesting, useful and true (or at least true-ish). There’s a real-time human fact-checker on hand to filter out the bull. The panel — an eclectic mix of comedians, brainiacs, and other smart people — poke and prod the contestants, and ultimately choose a winner. Sixth & I, 600 I St. NW, 7:30 p.m., free

Michel Richard Dinner: Beginning Tuesday through Saturday March 11, guests can enjoy a special four-course dinner to celebrate the birthday of the late, legendary Chef Michel Richard.

From a starter of Smoked Salmon Terrine, Leeks Tartare and Brioche to Michel’s Profiteroles for dessert, you definitely won't leave hungry! Wine pairings can be added for an additional $45. Central Michel Richard, 1001 Pennsylvania Ave. NW, 5:30 p.m., $80
