Yet another anniversary party this month -- this time at Crystal City's Tortoise and Hare, which has become a pretty safe bet for live music, trivia and brews over the last three years. They're having a weekend of events, starting with '90s cover band White Ford Bronco on Thursday, but we'd steer you towards Saturday's night-long fiesta. It starts with free appetizers for everyone from 7 to 9, a fashion show put on by the trendy and neighboring Gossip on 23rd boutique, and live music by the entertaining cover band Down Wilson. (Go ahead and yell for their version "No Diggity.") As always at the Tortoise and Hare, there's no cover charge.
