Nightlife Agenda Picks of the Week
It's Howard Homecoming Weekend, and you know what that means -- Partying with Diddy! Maxing out your credit card on expensive champagne! Renting an Escalade so you look cool cruising down U Street!
But let's say that's not your scene, and you'd rather hear good music and get your dance and sip on without throwing down a lot of cash. All you need is Fritz and Rhome's No Cash, No Bling Guide to Homecoming.
Thursday: Grits and Gravy. Old-school hip-hop, disco and funky '70s R&B and a crowd that's actually smiling -- smiling! -- and having a good time on the dance floor. Arrive between 6 and 8 for happy hour
Friday: The Reunion. Some enterprising promoters are trying to "reclaim" homecoming by offering free admission (with an e-mail RSVP) and free food in an intimate atmosphere in lieu of other, larger parties that are offering big-name stars and $50 cover charges. We'll see who wins.
Saturday: Guerilla Lounge. Underground hip-hop from D.C. and Texas hosted by Asheru, the man behind the "Boondocks" theme. Heads talk about these parties after they're over. Don't sleep.
Sunday: Daylight. No need for a disco nap when the music starts at 4 p.m.! DJ Bill Source -- formerly of State of the Union -- provides the beats on his birthday, while guests can snack on free food and the bar dispenses happy hour drinks until 10.
