SPORTS: Did you miss Citi Open’s kick-off concert on Saturday? Stop by the Rock Creek Park Tennis Center this afternoon for a kick-off happy hour. Tickets cost $65 and include entry to the 2 PM match, as well as unlimited food and drink from 6 to 8 PM in the hospitality tent. Bonus: The tent is air-conditioned.

MUSIC: Hailing from Santa Monica, California, the indie-pop band Cayucas takes the stage at the Rock and Roll Hotel tonight, performing sun-drenched tunes like “High School Lover” and “Cayucos” that sound—and feel—just like summer. $13 to $15, 8 PM.

FOOD: Prequel, the pop-up space in Penn Quarter, hosts chef Thomas Park of Daikaya, as part of its rising-star chef series. Park will serve a five-course, Korean-inspired dinner, including pork belly with braised kimchee and shaved ice with adzuki beans and mochi. $50, 7 to 10 PM.

TUESDAY, AUGUST 4

TRIVIA: Every Tuesday at 8 PM, catch trivia night at Denizens Brewing Co. in Silver Spring. Stop by the brewery a little early, from 4 to 6 PM, for $5 beers and $1 off small plates, including pulled-pork sliders and smoked baby back ribs.

DRINK: One Eight Distilling and Boundary Stone come together for a happy hour honoring the distillery’s latest release—Untitled Whiskey No. 2. (It’s described as a “Tennesse sour mash straight whiskey, blended and finished in an oloroso sherry cask.”) The Bloomingdale pub will serve, among other things, whiskey, cocktails, and bar food. Free, 6 to 8 PM.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 5

BOOKS: Pulitzer Prize-winning book critic Michael Dirda heads over to Politics and Prose to celebrate the release of his upcoming book, Browsings: A Year of Reading, Collecting, and Living with Books–a compilation of 50 works. Free, 7 PM.
