Monday, November 26

IRISH DANCING: You don’t have to have a four-leaf clover or much rhythm to participate in the Pour House’s ceilidh—a night of Irish folk music and dancing—tonight. The dances are made specifically for drunkies with little shame. Frog Hammer will provide the tunes and Janine Smith will teach you how to shake your feet. $5 donation suggested. 8 PM.

Tuesday, November 27

COCKTAILS: The Passenger didn’t start DC’s obsession with craft cocktails, but it certainly helped fuel the movement—and it might do it the best. It’s bitterly cold out there, but forget about all that with Tiki Tuesdays, where you’ll find specials on mai tais and daiquiris that don’t come out of a slushy machine, plus other tropical concoctions you won’t find outside the islands. 5 PM.

Wednesday, November 28

ART: Southeast’s THEARC is hosting its annual open house with sculptor and performance artist Nick Cave. The massive center will host performances from the Washington Ballet and the Levine School of Music, and art from the Corcoran. Light appetizers will be served. Free. 5:30 PM.

Thursday, November 29

MUSTACHES: Hope your Movember stache has been growing in nicely, because it’s time to show them off at Mad Rose’s Mustache Madness. There will be prizes for the best stache, raffles, beer specials, and live music. Free. 7 PM.
