Where & When: This Week in Washington Nightlife

What to do every night of this week for fun.

Monday, May 12: Monday Doggie Happy Hours
Cantina Marina ( on the Southwest DC waterfront starts its week with a dog-friendly happy hour every Monday. You’ll come for the $2 beer specials; your furry friend will appreciate the free Milk-Bone bar. See more dog-friendly happy hours in our guide.

Tuesday, May 13: A Night for Beer Lovers at the Brickskeller
Five of the country’s best beer brewers do the Brickskeller tonight at an event called the Lupulin Reunion. Tomme Arthur of Pizza Port and Lost Abbey, Adam Avery of Avery Brewing Company, Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head, Vinnie Cilurzo of Russian River, and Rob Tod of Allagash will talk about speciality beer and, more important, sharing. So get a ticket ($35) and head over at 6.

Wednesday, May 14: Kostume Karaoke at Solly’s
What’s better than regular old karaoke? Karaoke where you dress up in ridiculous costumes and wigs! Solly’s Tavern (1942 11th St., NW) holds its regular installment of Kostume Karaoke (the same one that used to be at Wonderland every Sunday) from 8 until closing. So prep that Phil Collins tune you’ve been dying to belt out, get ready to throw on a blue sparkly wig and pink tutu, and rock out.

Thursday, May 15: Julius Caesar
Our theater critic said the Shakespeare Theatre’s new production of Julius Caesar “has to be one of the best productions of this or any season.” Why not find out for yourself tonight?
