The weekend knows a good hitting instructor.

GIMME FIVE

Two Dozen Local Beers. For $5.

Here’s a tip: there are 24 local beers for $5 at Meridian Pint tonight, including eight casks made with locally foraged stuff like mint, lavender and mulberries. And come back through Saturday for more $5 local beers. Call it economic development.

One Lobster Isn’t Enough
LOB SHOT

One Lobster Isn’t Enough

You may have plans tonight. But those plans probably don’t include lobster. Here to change your plans: a feast that includes two one-pound lobsters, potatoes, corn, peach cobbler and unlimited Palm beer and gin cocktails. Have two of those as well.

Hail to the Cheerleaders
CHEER-IO

Hail to the Cheerleaders

Let’s be honest: you don’t really need a calendar for your wall. But if it depicts 12 months’ worth of Redskins cheerleaders, you may want such a thing. Tonight is your first chance to grab one, while you mingle with the squad and watch their latest performance.

Saturday
A Pop-Up Brunch in a Nightclub
BRUNCH-ING

A Pop-Up Brunch in a Nightclub

All in all, this is just your typical nightclub experience: a top local DJ, a bongo player, go-go dancers and copious amounts of champagne. Oh, and cinnamon french toast. Because once a month, the Huxley is doing its thing during the day with an all-you-can-eat brunch.

Jul 27, 1-5pm, $30, The Huxley, 1730 M St NW, text “BRUNCH” to 202-737-3783 for reservations

50+ Beers in a Parking Lot
TASTER’S CHOICE

50+ Beers in a Parking Lot

Your weekend destination: a parking lot near Mount Vernon Square. Yes, there’s more to it than that. Namely, a beer extravaganza with 50-plus beers to sample, plus live music, food trucks and the obligatory corn-toss competitions. Which you’ll obligatorily win.
