Monday, August 18

DOGS: City Dogs Rescue is hosting a whole bunch of Dining Out With Dogs nights around the city—that means you can bring your dog (and meet adoptable ones!) at Logan Tavern, Commissary, the Heights, Grillfish, and the Pig. Kids eat for free at each, and City Dogs gets 15 percent of the bill. 5 to midnight. 

Tuesday, August 19

POST-ITS: Yeah, the Post-It Note is (still) a useful thing, even in the smartphone age. UberOffices is celebrating 40 years of the invention with an art party, featuring Post-It art, beer, cake (probably Post-It shaped), and a “graphic jam,” which sounds kind of cool, though a little vague. Tickets ($10) are available online. 6:30 PM.

Wednesday, August 20

SHOP: Washingtonian wants to help you refresh your wardrobe for fall with our first-ever sample sale. Head to Long View Gallery on Wednesday for major discounts on items for men and women from 20-plus local stores, along with cocktails, hor d’oeuvres, and tunes from a deejay. Tickets ($30 general admission, $50 VIP) are available online. 6 to 9 PM VIP; 7 to 9 general admission. 

PIZZA: Though it’s only been in the Washington area for a couple of years, Mellow Mushroom turns 40 this week. To celebrate, the pizza spot is turning back the clock on prices to when it was founded: That means $2.50 small cheese pizzas, 30-cent cokes, 75-cent beers (SEVENTY-FIVE-CENT BEERS), and a deejay playing ’70s music and funk all night. 11:30 AM to 11:30 PM.

Thursday, August 21

YOGA: You might not know it, but yoga and wine go together like, well, any other two things that make you feel really good. Hierarchy hosts an hourlong vinyasa class, after which you’ll get to try four different wines and mingle with your class, talking about all the endorphins you’ve released and all the umm, aromas, you’re smelling. Hopefully just the wine ones. Tickets ($20) are available online. 7 PM.
