Freebie of the Week
Union Market drive-in movies are back by popular demand. This Friday, celebrate National No Beard Day (we’re serious) by watching Good Will Hunting. The flick's free, spots're on a first-come, first-served basis, and there are food and drinks from the Union Market vendors. "How do you like them apples?"

Oysters + Beer = What Port City Brewing Company is doing on Friday, with a Revival release and food from War Shore Oyster wherein they'll start filling pints and growlers with their oyster stout at 3p, while War Shore'll shuck local oysters from 5-9p.

Oh this? It's just a race where you jog 5k while wearing a costume, listening to "Thriller", and drinking beer in a tent at the finish line. In its 206th year, what could go wrong?
Do you sometimes turn into a mythical beast when you drink? Well then you're probably gonna want to head to Snallygaster 2013 -- the largest Union Market beer fest probably ever with 200 beers selected by the dude behind ChurchKey. Also: hot brats from Red Apron Butchery! Tickets are $10 at the door or you can get some pretty sweet advance packages here.

The Redskins are back from their bye week… and better than ever? Maybe not, but you can still try a crawfish-topped hot dog. Black Jack (on the 14th St strip) is offering some outside-the-box bar eats every Sunday during football season. Vote for your favorite and you could win a $25 bar tab.
