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
—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.
