Things to Do

Our Pick for the Week: Lounging, Intelligently (During a Happy Hour)

Thursday, July 26: The Modernist Society, a monthly event designed to encourage “intelligent lounging,” hosts an evening at Bourbon (2321 18th St., NW; 202-332 0800). The group’s idea of intelligent lounging? A happy hour, a Q&A session with a newsmaker, and then a DJ spinning funky tunes afterward. Sounds good to me. On tonight’s bill is Josh Rushing, a former Marine who is now a correspondent for the cable network Al Jazeera English. If you get there early enough, you might snag some of the free Absolut Vodka cocktails they'll be handing out. 8 pm; free.

More going on this week includes Chicago's The Ponys, in town at the Black Cat; happy hours; and an evening of European wine. Check it all out in our Where & When Weekly column.
