Hump Day Highlights

By Fritz Hahn

It's only Monday afternoon, and many of us are already looking forward to next weekend. However, there's no need to be dreaming of Saturday when there's so much going on during the week. This Wednesday, for instance, you have the opportunity to check out a brand new DJ night, party with an NBA superstar, taste some rare Scottish beers or get dressed up and take the stage yourself.

DJ Geometrix is a wizard on the turntable, cutting and scratching as he mixes hip-hop, mashups and '80s favorites for crowds at large clubs like Ibiza, Ultrabar and Avenue. Starting this week, he'll take over the turntables at Fly every Wednesday. The intimate lounge is an interesting choice, but we're sure he'll pack the place. Admission is free for women all night, and guys pay $10 -- or get in free if they have a pass from

The Wizards take on potential MVP LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night, and King James is getting ready for the game by hosting the weekly Flirt party at kstreet Lounge on Wednesday night. Will you get a chance to see him in the VIP room? Maybe. Flirt's been drawing its share of Redskins and Wizards lately. But even if you don't set eyes on LeBron, you can take advantage of free drinks from 6 to 8 and a buffet dinner at 7. Visit for a pass.

Scottish brewmaster Bruce Williams specializes in creating ales that mix the traditional and unusual. Froch Heather Ale is a soft, floral beer made with fresh heather flowers, and Kelpie is a malty red ale made with seaweed. They sound odd, I know, but they're wonderful to drink, especially when they're served in "real ale" form, poured directly from a cask without excess carbonation. Williams is bringing eight of his favorite beers directly from Scotland to the Brickskeller this week, where he'll talk about crafting award-winning brews and offer samples of all the beers, served as they would be in Scotland. Tickets are $35.

Finally, it's time for Kostume Karaoke to make its monthly return to Solly's. More interactive than the usual karaoke, Kostume Karaoke asks guests to dress up, using some of the many provided props -- safari hats, wigs, a Winnie the Pooh outfit -- or by bringing their own. Organizers have recently upped the number of available songs to around 7,000, so there's sure to be something you want to sing. The music begins at 8, but you should arrive earlier to sign up, as it's a very popular event. There's no cover charge.
