Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

We admire -- no, love -- the idea of a group of motorcycle-loving, hard-riding police officers and firefighters that calls itself the Renegade Pigs. We like it even more because it's a nonprofit group dedicated to raising money for charity. Saturday at RNR Bar & Lounge, the group is hosting a party to benefit the Gerard W. Burke scholarship fund at Catholic University. Burke, a D.C. police sergeant, suffered a fatal heart attack in March 2006 while chasing a stolen car. His name will be added to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial later this year. Though tonight's event is sponsored by (and sure to be full of) police officers, it's still a biker party, so expect things to get a little crazy. Free beer and food are offered from 6 to 8, while a bagpipe band performs. A "naughty schoolgirl contest" runs from 9 to 11, with a $500 prize for the best costume. There's a motorcycle show outside and drink specials from 6 to midnight. The cover is $20, but all proceeds from the event go directly to the Burke scholarship fund.

This is just one of the events in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, which also includes DJs Spooky, 9th Wonder and Bad Boy Bill, album-release parties by local bands, happy hours and a new "Caribbean Getaway" night that has us thinking of the islands.
