Where can you get bourbon, barbecue, and cigars in one place? At Old Glory’s Bourbon and Cigar Dinner, of course! The four-course menu will pair a flight of bourbon with each dish, along with one cigar for the evening. The spread includes juniper seared Hudson Valley duck breast, grilled sea scallops, porcini crusted NY strip steak, and blueberry bourbon sorbet. Tickets ($50) can be purchased at the event Web site. 6:30 to 9:30 PM.

MUSIC: The Glitch Mob is dropping by the 9:30 Club for an evening of dance and hip-hop fusion. The three-man electronica group recently collaborated with Daft Punk for the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. You can sample some of their tracks here. Tickets ($20) can be purchased at the event Web site. Doors open at 7 PM.

PARTY: Join WGirlsDC for their Summer Fun party at Acre 121. Enjoy live music by the bluegrass band Split String Soup while sipping on a free drink of your choice.
