Tuesday, September 2

COMEDY: Members of Congress probably deserve the roasting they get. They’ll be getting some more of it tonight at Tuesdays With Funnie at the Brixton, in which a series of standup comics bash (in mostly lighthearted fashion) one particular person or set of people. This week, “Congress” will be played by comedian Dylan Meyer, the rest will be doing the roasting. Free. 8 PM.

Wednesday, September 3

IMPROV: Just when it seems to be getting good, improv comedy games tend to stop (you’ve got to end on a high note). But what happens when you take a couple ideas and turn them into a full(ish) play? That’s what the folks at Lets Press Play do, turning out “longform” improv for you to laugh along with. A more standard improv troupe, the Rich and the Richer, and standup comedy from Jon Chesebro start off the night. $8. 7:30 PM.

HAPPY HOUR: New Belgium and Brightest Young Things presents the Pet Happy Hour at Logan Tavern, which is exactly what it sounds like. Bring your dog, cat, ferret, or alligator (do not bring your alligator) to the bar and sip on $5 New Belgium Snapshot Wheat beers during the party. Free. 6 PM.

Thursday, September 4

PARTY: The Half Street Fairgrounds (that’s the huge area outside Nationals Park) is hosting InTheCapital’s DC Fest, featuring live music, corn hole, a bunch of food trucks, the drinks you’re used to from the space (first one is included with your admission), and groups like HailO, TopGolf, and WeddingWire telling you what they’re all about. $18 ($65 for open bar). 5:30 PM.
