Game-Time Specials at Ris
BRACKET BUSTER

Game-Time Specials at Ris

VCU and Richmond in the Sweet 16. That’s different. So is the idea of getting mussels with chorizo, octopus salad and bite-size meatloaf for $6.30 each. You’ll also get specials on wine, sangria and draft beer. Otherwise known as the number one seed of relaxation.

During game times throughout the NCAA Tournament, Ris, 2275 L St NW, 202-730-2500

HUNTER-GATHERER

A Scavenger Hunt at Beer Bars

Even if you’ve never been much for group projects, you may want to sign on to this one: you and three friends have two nights to scour 10 beer-friendly bars. Your charge: order the right beers off each bar’s list, based on clues you receive. Oh, and then drink them.

Saturday
Multiple Mimosas at Local 16
BRUNCHING

Multiple Mimosas at Local 16

After a night or two of chasing down beers, a morning restorative could be in order. Like unlimited $3 mimosas, backed with eggs and chorizo baked in the wood-burning oven, steak and eggs, and the Lox Scramble Pizza. We suggest one mimosa per slice.

DMV Nude Returns to Georgetown

The folks from the DMV Film Festival are back with another art gallery cocktail party full of adult beverages and other adult pursuits, like live body painting and erotic photography. And this time, they’ll have the photographer’s work on hand for purchase. Like buying a pennant at the ballpark, but different.
