Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

Combining zany activities and philanthropic work is all in a day's work -- or in a day's drinking -- for SMASHED. Best known for the Idiotarod, which had teams of twentysomethings racing through D.C.'s streets pulling shopping carts sled-dog style, SMASHED keeps coming up with new ways of helping charities. (The name is an acronym for Society of Mature Adults Seeking to Help, Entertain and Donate.) Saturday's main event, which benefits the Homeless Children's Playtime Project, is the Couch Potato Party -- a "bar crawl" between five adjacent Adams Morgan watering holes, so you'll never be too far from your next drink. From 3 p.m. on, a $10 donation gets you $3 draft beers, $2 shooters, entrance into an air guitar competition, board games, a trivia contest and more. Sounds like the perfect way to kill a Saturday afternoon, doesn't it? Best of all, you're helping a program that makes sure homeless kids have time to, well, act like kids. The action begins at Spaghetti Garden and takes in the rooftop and ground levels at Roxanne, Peyote Cafe and Tom Tom.

This is one of the events you'll find in our complete Nightlife Agenda, which covers happy hours, concerts and events taking place through next Wednesday.
