Nightlife Agenda Pick of the Week

By Fritz Hahn

If we could look back over all the questions that we've gotten since Got Plans? began, we'd have to say that "Where can I ride a mechanical bull?" would be near the top of the list. Blame regulations, licensing or just fear of lawsuits, but there's no bar in the metropolitan area that lets its patrons live out their "Urban Cowboy" fantasies. On December 6, though, for one night only, McFadden's is bringing in some robotic livestock and hosting a Mechanical Bull Riding Competition from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Prizes will be awarded to the cowboy or cowgirl who stays on the bucking bovine the longest. The evening includes plenty of drink specials -- an optional $10 open bar from 6 to 8, then $3 Miller Lite pitchers, Southern Comfort shots and vodka drinks from 8 to midnight -- but you'll have to sign a liability waver before you get on the bull, so pace yourself.

This is just one of the events featured in this week's Nightlife Agenda column, along with fundraisers marking World AIDS Day, Little Brother, Amy Sedaris, Sean Kingston, local blues bands and a Bethesda nightlife tour.
