For the days when you actually make it out of the office in time for happy hour, head to Urban Butcher's patio. Its happy hour specials run from 5 to 7:30 p.m. on the patio and at the bar's high-top communal tables, and they include everything you need to unwind after a long day of work.
Treat yourself to a lavender-infused margarita with house-made sour and silver tequila or try the MoCo Mule with house-made ginger beer and vodka. The hibiscus mojito is another refreshing way to decompress, a mix of rum, ginger, and mint with a subtle floral undertone. Whatever sip you choose, pair it with one of the gourmet bites, like a meat cellar board loaded with cured meats, salami, cheese, and paté. If you're still hungry, the Butcher's burger and fries is only $12 during happy hour, as is the truffle mac and cheese au gratin.
Washington Revels is a multigenerational organization in the greater Washington area that celebrates traditional music, dance, drama, and storytelling from diverse cultures and eras, engaging more than 250 performers plus hundreds of volunteers. The Revels present 50+ programs annually, including the Christmas Revels (seen by 10,000 people every year!), May Revels, after-school workshops, concerts, pub sings, and parades. Venues for these and many other productions range from outdoor parks to a 1,500-seat theater.
On the 21st day of every month, the Revels host a Community Sing to share songs, community, and refreshments. The Sings have a different theme each month, and may honor the seasons, holidays, or historic and social movements of the particular month. On the second Thursday of each month, you can also join the Contra Dance at the Silver Spring Civic Building, and no experience is necessary.
