Event of the Week: Red Bull Flugtag Starting at 2p on Saturday, the National Harbor South Point Waterfront becomes the "flight deck for freedom" and guys throwing themselves & their homemade flying machines off a cliff into the Potomac. It's pretty much the best thing ever. This is one of the most epic events you may ever go to Freebie of the Week: Thrillist discounts to shows at Howard Theatre Use the discount code "TRLHT" for 20% off at Howard Theatre for these shows: Lee Scratch Perry, Red Eye Tour, Big Boi, and The Orb. Discounted tickets are the best kind of tickets Thursday, September 19th After a painful defeat on American Gladiator... haha, just kidding, The Bachelorette and then everybody's favorite spin-off, Bachelor Pad, Chris Bukowski said, "Screw ABC, I'm opening a bar called Bracket Room in Arlington, VA." Then upon realizing the ABC runs the liquor in VA, he probably regretted it, but had already invested so much bach-cash he had to just open it anyway. Love The Bachelor? Hate The Bachelor? Just want to see the bar? Friday, September 20th "Live long on lager" is what nerds will be saying to each other at Black Squirrel as they celebrate their Spocktoberfest with Mr. Spock's favorites, such as Märzen beer and bratwurst. Come out in your
nerd-wear lederhosen and guzzle one-liter steins. Vulcans eat free. Live long and prosper Saturday, September 21st Heading out to FreeFest this Saturday? Then get on the BUS: the 9:30 Club Virgin Mobile FreeFest Magical Unicorn Bus of Romance and Dreams secures you a ride out and back (11a-10p), BYT VIP area with a restroom, and line-jumping privileges at a nearby bar for "all the drinks". ALL OF THEM. This thing will definitely sell out, but you can get on the wait list Saturday, September 21st From 12-8p, check in at eight different Chinatown bars (RFD/Fado/Penn Social) for one premium 12oz Oktoberfest beer and specials on food, liquor, and, obviously, more beers. Also, this thing will definitely sell out Sunday, September 22nd Looking for a sweet Sunday football drinking spot that won't net Dan "The Devil" Snyder cash? Drop by Jack Rose's "Brew Skins" at noon for half-priced bites and $4 pints. SKINS! SKINS! HTTR!
