A reprise of the first D.C. hip-hop bar crawl has been almost a year in the making. Perhaps that was the necessary recovery time from the first one, which was an ingenious spin on a popular drinking ritual. All the elements have returned. Starting at 1 p.m. and going to the wee hours, crawl features a DJ rocking a different musical theme and different drink special at each stop.
DJ Kayo starts with a West Coast classics set at Tabaq from 2 to 4, then DJ Jimmy Phingaz takes over at Touchdown from 4 to 5. DJ Que rocks '80s and '90s New York hip-hop at Ulah Bistro from 5 to 6, at which point the crowd heads to the Islander, where DJ Oso Fresh will be spinning the original tunes that famous hip-hop songs sampled until 7. Bro DJ goes from 7 to 8 at Tap and Parlour. The grand finale is at Queen Makeda from 8 p.m. to 2:30 a.m., featuring DJ R.B.I. "and company" spinning their favorites.
To receive the happy hour deals at each spot, buy $5 wristband at any of the participating bars during the crawl.
