Crawl on

Whether you find most bar crawls too pedestrian, there are two alternative versions that might suit your needs this week. At 7 p.m. on Friday, December 18, join the Fancy Winter Cocktail Crawl: a prime excuse to wear your most elegant gowns and bow ties and feel positively fabulous. That means sipping on seasonal concoctions in appropriately formal settings. Where better to start than Grange Restaurant & Bar (926 J Street)? The following destinations aren't set, but are likely to include Empress Tavern, Ella Dining Room & Bar, the Grand, Vanguard and the Mix. If that all sounds way too stuffy to you, you're more likely to join Saturday's event, the second annual Onesie Pub Crawl. Don your snuggliest one-piece—ideally with a cute animal hood—and head to Alley Katz (2019 O Street) at 5 p.m. Drink specials and cozy silliness will ensue at Kupros, LowBrau, Der Biergarten, the Golden Bear and the Distillery—in that order—until 11 p.m.
