Tonight: Free Pho Dogs at U Street Music Hall

By Fritz Hahn

I'll admit we dithered about whether to put tonight's free U Street Music Hall party in this week's Nightlife Agenda column. We don't know much about headlining DJs Kissette, though their Web bio informs us that "They have DJ'ed very successful special events and through their successes have secured a firm relationship with various sponsors and venues." Um, okaaay.

But what we were excited about is free pho dogs from the kitchen all night long. We love the pho dogs -- beef or tofu hot dogs that are placed in a spicy pho broth and topped with cilantro, basil, banh mi-style slaw and both hoisin and sriracha. So why are they free? In a few months, U Hall's chef is opening Toki Underground, a late-night noodle spot above the Pug on H Street NE. Consider this a preview of what's to come -- and the club will be raffling off a pair of tickets to Toki Underground's opening party, which is expected to be in October if all goes well.

Doors open at 8 p.m. DJs Kom-Tok and Ca$$idy are also on the bill, along with electro group Lions, Tigers and Whales.
