Welcome to the new-look Going Out Guide Blog. We had a little work done overnight. Today's soundtrack: War, performing at the Birchmere tonight.

Here's what you missed yesterday while you were reading the Manti Te'o story on Deadspin:

Let's talk about dive bars, shall we? [DCist]

Dining on the down-low, Madame Secretary? There's a restaurant with a secret entrance for that. [Conde Nast Traveler]

A salute to D.C.'s best sports bar snacks **cough cough Duffy's Chesapeake wings cough cough** [Eater DC]

"How long will it take you to flood this town with [growlers] again?" A few weeks. [WCP]

Ray's Hell Burger and Ray's Hell Burger Too are closed because of a landlord-tenant dispute. [ARLNow.com]
