Monday, March 31

TRIVIA: The Brixton’s weekly trivia night has been taken over by the Shakespeare Theatre Company, which will insert special Billy Shakes-inspired questions throughout the night to promote its staging of Henry IV Parts I and II. If you win, you can get free tickets to the play and other special prize packs. Free. 7 PM.

Tuesday, April 1

COMEDY: Go back to the Brixton for its monthly comedy roast—this month, the lucky verbal assault subject is WMATA, so you can relieve some commuting-related rage with the help of some professional comedians. Free. 8 PM.

Wednesday, April 2

DRINKS: Tanqueray and Brightest Young Things take over Bar Pilar for a free welcome-to-spring happy hour, featuring two special, delicious-sounding gin cocktails. The food at Bar Pilar ain’t too shabby, either, so you can make a night out of it. Free (RSVP required). 5:30 PM.

Thursday, April 3

ART: Shaw’s Bistro Bohem hosts Undead Presidents, a night showing off the cartoony works of artist Jim Gutierrez. The event features a deejay, good drinks, good art, and small bar bites (which hopefully don’t include any human flesh to go along with the whole zombie president theme). Free. 7 PM.
