What to Do This Week: June 10 to 13
The first Best of Washington happy hour and the opening of the Source festival.
Monday, June 10
DECOR: DC’s quirkiest furniture and tchotchke store, 14th Street’s Miss Pixie’s, is bringing in Art Enables’ Paul Yandura to talk about his collection of random stuff and how you can start your own. A trip to Miss Pixie’s probably isn’t a bad start. Tickets ($10) are available online. 7 PM.
Tuesday, June 11
THEATER: The Source Festival is perfect for anyone who likes theater and has an extreme case of ADD. Hundreds of playwrights from around the country sent in their scripts for off-the-wall ten-minute plays; just a handful were picked for the festival. Check out six of the best Tuesday. Tickets ($20) are available online. 8 PM.
Wednesday, June 12
HAPPY HOUR: It’s Best of Washington season again, and you know what that means—awesome happy hours in the month leading up to the big day. Join The Washingtonian and the Leukemia & Lymphoma society at Arlington’s A-Town Bar & Grill—five bucks gets you a drink and appetizers, and discounted tickets to Best of Washington will be on sale. $5. 5 PM.
Thursday, June 13
BEER: Gulden Draak and Piraat’s Jef Versele (can you tell the beers are Belgian?) will take over Jack Rose’s taps for a Piraat-themed party, featuring $6 pours of 15 beers, a pirate costume contest, lots of free pirate treasure, and more. The brewery has been in operation since before DC was even a thing (1784), so these guys know a thing or two about making a brew. Free. 6 PM.
