This year, you'll at least have two choices of weird and/or racist old dudes to support if you want to be a DC football fan.

DC theater company Astro Pop Events will host their 10th annual Elvis Birthday Fight Club – “an action-packed, punch-drunk evening full of cartoon-like violence, below-the-belt comedy, and hot tah-tahs.” Enough said. (Friday and Saturday) 

 

Take “the most enjoyable tequila shot in DC”

You like picklebacks? Go to Truxton Circle's Republic Cantina and order a pico back—a shot of tequila followed by the limey juice left over from making pico de gallo. It's part of a menu-wide emphasis on identifying ways to reuse surplus ingredients.

 

Trace Tim Kardashian's dream day

The DC-based comic with The Correspondents says he loves going to the National Archives and "asking strangers if they’ve seen National Treasure — it’s a millennial’s Citizen Kane" and beating children at Monopoly at Tryst. Their "Battle for 2020" show is next Thursday at Union Stage.
