Bummers and Big Deals (April 2020)

A round-up of some recent cool things, and a few that suck.

Yeah, mostly bummers this month, and we don’t need to relive them all. So let’s have more Big Deals. Beer, that’s a theme. Why not, we’re all thirsty and National Beer Day is April 7th!

Big Deals

Just announced!!! Atlas Brew Works‘ Half Street in Navy Yard location (by Nationals Park) is open for take out at their pick-up window!! (Atlas Brew Works IG)

Skim through the Virtual Tip Jar and support local restaurant/bar industry staff. You can give them tips via Venmo or PayPal while they are out of work. (List of ways to help)

Support your local breweries! Pick up and delivery options are available for cans and growlers. Here’s a full list on how. (Brewers Association’s Google doc)

Hey, Red Bear Brewing now has cans!! Of 51st State and Skookum!!! Verified delicious and ready for you to buy.

Bluejacket is ramping up their can scene too, lots more than normal available. Check out the menu of options – updates regularly. (Bluejacket Beer Menu)

You can still stream some of the films from the Environmental Film Festival for free. (Do This)

Lots of local bands and artists are doing live virtual streams of performances in lieu of live concerts. Hope you’ve been able to join a few. Another one we recommend is coming next week. (Concert Pick)

Crab Boss was coming to the former Ben’s Upstairs spot on H Street NE! Was just about to open before things hit the fan.


Everything about Coronavirus (COVID-19). Everything.

Taco Bamba closed permanently. When taco options are lost, it’s personal. (Popville)

Other things have closed permanently, but we can only take so much.
