Monday, November 24

STORYTELLING: Story League‘s all-stars are back for their tenth tournament. Previous winners of smaller events will take the stage at U Street Music Hall and tell you their most obnoxious story (that’s this month’s theme). In this case, I’d expect more cringey and funny stories than anything that’s going to pull at your heartstrings. Tickets ($15) are available online. 7 PM.

Tuesday, November 25

COMEDY: Bier Baron hosts the Last Resort comedy show, featuring some of the area’s best standups. You can score $3 PBRs and Natty Boh tallboys during the event; if you’re not into those two beers, well, then, the bar serves something like 600 additional brews, so I think you’ll be okay. Free. 8:30 PM.

Wednesday, November 26

DRINK: It’s statistically the biggest drinking day of the year, so stay safe out there at whichever bar you choose to head to and catch up with your old friends. If you need ideas, Republic in Takoma Park is hosting a Friendsgiving, which features board games, $10 fancy warm cocktails, and a karaoke competition. Free. 8 PM.
