Your Thursday Pre-Plan

It’s Wednesday, which means in my weekly fashion, I’m dishing out what you need to see Thursday Night. Yes, Thursday, the night real party folks get their weekend on. Less crowds, more specials, and best, Friday to be hung over on. Like you do any work then anyway!

This week we have several very cool options for your T-day fun.

  • First up is the monthly DC Tri Club Happy Hour This month, the hot bod’s will be at a new location for the monthly happy hour: Eye Bar This is one of your last chances to get up with us Olympic triathletes before winter sets in and we go to soft jelly.

    Eye Bar, 1716 I St. NW
  • Next is a Hurricane Katrina Happy Hour at Porter’s Dining Saloon. We all know our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of Hurricane Katrina, so now it’s time for our drinks financial support to go out to them as well. They’re asking for a $10 per person donation at the door to benefit the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund to support its efforts for Hurricane Katrina and Porter’s is kicking in 10% of the proceeds from the night as well.

  • Yet another Hurricane Katrina Happy Hour, this one at Bossa. Word is that your donation at the door gets you a complimentary shooter — you know, to drown your sorrows. Expect the usual Latin beats and there are rumors of live performance. Courtesy of Rus

  • The DC Labor FilmFest 2005 promises to be a great celebration of us desk jockeys. While all the fancy stuff happens Saturday with a 25th anniversary showing of 9-5, complete with Jane Fonda and Barbara Kopple, Thursday has Mardi Gras: Made in China and a Q&A with Director David Redmon after the screening. Mardi Gras: Made in China follows the “bead trail” from the factory in China to Bourbon Street during Mardi Gras, poignantly exposing the inequities of globalization. A interesting pick now that New Orleans is under water.

No matter which event you hit, do be sure to pack a camera. The DC MetroBlogging Ugly Shirt Contest is on and we’re waiting to see the fashion crimes you’ll find!
