Petworth Citizen's monthly tap takeovers have been building steam over the past few months. While previous events have showcased the beers of one particular brewery -- Starr Hill in July, Finch's in June -- the August edition is more of a stylistic takeover, with Belgian sour ales from Petrus, Brasserie de Silly, St. Louis and Monk's Cafe. (The latter is a legendary Philadelphia beer bar, but its oud bruin sour ale is specially brewed at Belgium's Brouwerij Van Steenberge.) Of particular note are the Oak Aged Red Ale and Oak Aged Pale Ale from Petrus. Beers will rotate on Petworth Citizen's taps from 5 p.m. until they run out. Get there between 5 and 7 p.m. and try any sour ale for $4; they'll be $6 per glass after that.
Despite Hogo's closure over the weekend, scorpion bowls and mai tais haven't been evicted from Seventh Street NW. Bartender/owner Tom Brown is bringing his fanciful ceramic glassware a few doors north to the Passenger, where the old Tiki Tuesdays party has been resurrected as a weekly event. There are plenty of plastic leis to go around, but there's only one rule: Everything tastes better when it's drunk out of a fresh pineapple. Doors open at 5 p.m.; cocktail prices vary.
"Twin Peaks" debuted on TV 24 years ago, but the dark, alluringly eccentric soap opera still has its fans. Beginning tonight, Dr. Clock's Nowhere Bar is launching a first-Tuesday-of-the-month "Twin Peaks" party that will feature episodes playing on a large projection screen, free doughnuts and drink specials inspired by the Log Lady and other characters. The 94-minute pilot begins at 9 p.m., followed by DJs Jennder and Chris Rudy spinning lounge and esoteric music. "Twin Peaks"-inspired costumes are encouraged, and there's no cover.
