What to Do This Week: May 13 to 16

Meet Josh Radnor of “How I Met Your Mother” and learn about beers from unusual places.

Monday, May 13

How I Met Your Mother’s
Josh Radnor will be at Sixth & I to talk about the show and about how Judaism influenced his
acting and directing life. Afterward, Estadio’s Adam Bernbach will teach you how to
stir up cocktails and Pleasant Pops’ Roger Horowitz will presumably be either serving
or teaching you how to make popsicles. Tickets ($15) are available online. 7:30 PM.

Tuesday, May 14

GOLF: If you haven’t checked out H Street Country Club’s brand new rooftop yet, here’s your
chance: The
Hinge dating app is throwing a pretty sweet happy hour. Even if you’re not looking for
somebody, you can still take advantage of $5 margaritas, $3 Miller Lites, $2 tacos,
and $2 mini golf until 10 PM. Free. 6 PM.

Wednesday, May 15

DRINK: Garrett Oliver, the mastermind behind Brooklyn Brewery, will prove there are breweries
from places even Williamsburg’s hipsters haven’t heard of. At
National Geographic’s
Beer From Where?, he’ll talk about and serving up brews from the furthest reaches of Earth. Admission
includes beer and light food. Tickets ($85) are available online. 7 PM.

Thursday, May 16

LEARN: Thirst. is back at Black Whiskey with more nerdy talks to keep your grey matter going: Tim
Bailey will talk about how we’re going to eventually get bartenders, landscapers (moon
dust sweepers?), and other everyday people into space someday, Jon Arroyo of Founding
Farmers will talk about whipping up dishes and drinks for a restaurant, and Darcy
Gentleman will talk about the science of failure. As always, have a drink or two during
the talks, then get ready to dance afterward. Tickets ($15) are available online.
6 PM.
