Tuesday, May 28

SUMMER: With Memorial Day firmly in the rearview mirror, it’s officially unofficially summer, which means it’s time to stop drinking hot toddies and egg nog (you were still drinking those, right?) and switch to something a little more seasonal. Boundary Stone will stir up special summer punches made with Bulleit Bourbon and Captain Morgan during happy hour. Free with RSVP. 5 PM.


Wednesday, May 29

BEER: Ashburn’s Lost Rhino Brewing Company is taking over Penn Social to show off its beers as part of the bar’s local beer month. During happy hour, you can get free samples of pours such as the Face Plant IPA and Rhino Chasers Pils. Full pints will be on special once you find one you like, and the shuffleboard, ping pong, and pool tables will be open for free. Free. 5:30 PM.


Thursday, May 30

AWARD CEREMONY: H Street, Northeast, is being named DC’s Great Street of the Year by the Humanities Council of Washington, DC. (I assume me living there has something to do with it.) To celebrate, join mayoral candidate Tommy Wells and owners of some of the businesses that have made the Atlas District so hopping over the past couple years at Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar. Honorees will tell some of their favorite stories about H Street’s interesting history. Admission includes hors d’oeuvres and drinks. Tickets ($50) are available online. 8:30 PM.
