We've never heard of a regatta on U Street before, but we suppose there's a first time for everything. Nellie's Sports Bar and the D.C. Strokes Rowing Club are teaming up to host Nellie's Regatta tonight at the corner of Ninth and U. Challenge your friends to sprint races on ERG rowing machines; there will be prizes for the fastest times of the night. Members of the Strokes, the gold-medal-winning gay and lesbian rowing club, will offer tips on technique. (We should point out that although the Strokes were founded as a gay team, they welcome members of all orientations.) The event runs from 6 to 11, and if you get there early enough, you can take advantage of Nellie's beat-the-clock happy hour, which starts with $1 beers at 5.
