It’s been more than five years since WWE held a marquee, pay-per-view event in the nation’s capital.

Also on the card: John Cena, the New Day and the Wyatt Family, Kevin Owens and the Miz. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $25-$500.

Don your favorite Hawaiian shirt and prepare to limbo for a good cause at the Tiki Party on Red Derby’s rooftop deck. The bar’s annual tiki party features tropical punches, Tecate beers and a grill loaded with pineapple skewers, chicken, hot dogs and other snacks, all to benefit the District Alliance for Safe Housing. There’s more than just eating and drinking, including a limbo contest (6 p.m.), a hula hoop contest (7 p.m.) and an award for the best Hawaiian shirt. The party runs from 3 to 8 p.m. and admission is free.
