Things to Do

Where & When: This Week in Washington Nightlife

Every Monday, we give you the nightlife picks for the rest of the week.

If you’re not ready to let go of the weekend just yet, head to the U Street bar Duffy’s Irish Pub for its Monday-night special of $1 for any beer that comes in a can, starting at 4 and going till midnight. Duffy’s may be low on the atmosphere scale, but hey, for beer that cheap, we’re willing to put up with a lot.

Tuesday, September 9: Noir With Pelecanos
Are you a fan of author George Pelecanos, who’s made a name for himself writing dark and intriguing crime novels set in the District? Then make your way to Busboys & Poets tonight from 6 to 8. He’ll be hosting a talk about DC Noir 2, a collection of noir tales set in DC.

Wednesday, September 10: Sandra Bernhard Without You
