Monday, April 7

BEER: Apparently today is National Beer Day, which is good news if you were looking for an excuse to drink beer on a Monday. All day City Tap House has special rare pours from Atlas Brew Works, the Bruery, Boulevard Brewing Company, Firestone Walker Brewing Company, Terrapin Beer Company, and Sierra Nevada. If beer isn’t your thing, bartenders will stir up craft rye cocktails all night, too. Free.


Tuesday, April 8

MORE BEER: Like I said, people like beer no matter what day it is. You’ve probably followed the opening of DC breweries in the past couple of years (DC Brau, Bluejacket, Chocolate City), but do you know anything about what came before them? Beer scholar (yes that’s a thing) Garrett Peck heads to RFD to talk about the history of brewing in the city, and you can throw back a few while you listen. Free (RSVP required; e-mail @rsvp@dcplfoundation.org or call 202-727-4943). 6:30 PM.


Wednesday, April 9

BIKE: If your bike has been in hibernation this winter, dust it off for DC Bike Party’s second annual Cherry Blossom Chase. The ride swings all around town before ending at Rock & Roll Hotel for a free show by reggae band B Side Shuffle. Dress like a tourist for the full experience. Free. 7:30 PM.


Thursday, April 10

COMEDY: Comedian Kyle Kinane has appeared on Conan, Workaholics, Drunk History, and other late-night shows, and this weekend he’ll be at DC Improv. He’s part of a new breed of comedians who are a little sloppy, have huge beards, and are almost as funny to look at as they are to listen to. That’s not a knock on his comedy, just a comment on his silly beard. Tickets ($15) are available online. 8 PM.
