G-Side will perform at DC9. (Matt McGinely)

Grab that thrift store sweater you brought for tacky holiday sweater parties of Christmas past and head to Dupont Circle for the Christmas Crawl. The 13 participating bars offer drink specials and the night ends with a Best Dressed contest at McFadden’s.

On the opposite side of the drink spectrum, fancy cocktails will be served up at the Repeal Day Ball, the D.C. Craft Bartender’s Guild’s annual Roaring ’20s-themed party. Look for drinks from some of the top mixologists in the city, along with veteran cocktail masters from across the country.

Close out the weekend with a show by the hip-hop duo G-Side. By remaining firmly planted in their hometown of Huntsville, Ala., the twosome have created a thriving music scene there and become one of rap’s most consistent acts, mixing psychedelic and soul sounds with Southern rap. Read a profile of G-Side by David Malitz and catch them live at DC9.
