Celebrate Freedom, Russians, and Balls Rolling into Holes

Wonkabout

Wednesday, July 21: Maybe you care that today is Feestag, the Belgian copy of the French copy of the 4th of July? Of course you do, because Real Americans love using other countries' celebrations of freedom as excuses to drink, regardless of what/where actually happened. Brasserie Beck is celebrating Belgium Day tonight from 5-9PM with an all-you-can-drink-and-eat menu that includes some of their normally pricey drafts for $45. [Brasserie Beck]


  • Wednesday, July 21: The next "What's the Deal?" event, where you sign up to receive emails about deals and such in return for free drinks, is tonight at Russia House. When you go, not only will you get to enjoy how seedy the establishment is, but you can make all the jokes you want about the true identities of the women who work there. [What's The Deal]
  • Friday, July 23: According to, well, us, the Hirshhorn After Hours, is "still hot.. [and] gets a crowd not found anywhere else in DC"...  by which we must have meant well-bred hipsters who are a-okay paying $18 to not look at art while at an art gallery, but drink and play with glow-sticks instead. We have on good intel that there may just be a hula hoop competition at this Friday's party. [Hirsohhorn After Hours]
  • Sunday, July 25: This Sunday take the white man shuttle to H Street Country Club for margaritas, the best Mexican food you'll find in a Country Club in DC, and every hipster's other favorite sweat-free sport, skeeball. Registration is still open if you have a desire to battle the "Mo-Skee-Toes" and other teams for skeeball glory. [Skeeball at H Street Country Club]
  • Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25: Morning editor Josh Fruhlinger will be in a pool in Baltimore pretending to be Zeus, because it is art and because his wife is making him. See him in the flesh in the water ballet, Jason and the Aquanauts: 20,000 Legs Over The Sea and while in the "The Greatest City in America" eat at the Paper Moon Diner because it is quite good, for a diner. [Fluid Movement, Paper Moon Diner]
  • Food trucks: Following all the food trucks in DC on Twitter is too much for Washingtonians who need to reserve the bulk of their day for Porn Cruisin'. Thankfully, some kind soul is now aggregating all DC food truck tweets onto one website, "Food Truck Fiesta." It's really only a matter of time before Twitter (and restaurants) are obsolete.

Yr Wonkette has been getting quite a few visits from trolls lately, although most of the infestations have been incredibly tiresome and not at all worth discussing here. We're talking, like, not even as good as ol' Turgid Love Muscle Guy. Come to think of it, we haven't seen him in a while; hope he's OK. At least health-wise.

In 2006, Bob Casey Jr., then the Pennsylvania state treasurer, defeated Rick Santorum and took his seat in the US Senate; presumably only after having it steam cleaned. Not that Casey wanted anything much to do with Dan Savage, the columnist who had helpfully made the alternative definition of "Santorum" one of the best demonstrations of the power of trolling for the prior three years. But in '06, Casey's campaign actually declined a donation from Savage; Casey's finance director thanked him, but suggested maybe Savage could give the money to a group working against Santorum so Casey wouldn't get flak for taking the donation. That was back when Dems were happy to talk about civil unions but frightened of gay marriage, and Casey just plain wussed out on the chance to bring a "weeks-long debate about feces, lube, and assfucking" to the Senate race, as then-Wonket Dave Weigel put it. But Bob Casey has come rather a long way since then, and he now supports marriage equality. He might still be a bit shy about a full-on embrace of buttsechs talk, however.
