Getting Up Guide: Pac Div; Kim O'Donnel; Unita and the Bruery
What are your plans tonight? The Getting Up Guide is here to help you answer that question. Here's what's happening Tuesday:
Much like Little Brother before them, this trio gained the attention of hip-hop vets by not simply aping their work in hollow old school homage, but building on classic styles to create something new and relevant. After three well-received mixtapes and one EP over four years, the SoCal boys are gearing up for their official label backed album release next month, and they'll be at Liv with a gang of D.C. hip-hop talents to prep heads for it.
The former Washington Post food columnist has a new book, "The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook," and will have a sampling of vegetarian dishes for this event, which begins at 7 p.m. at Politics & Prose.
Beer events: Unita; the Bruery
Excellent small-batch Belgian-style beers from San Diego's the Bruery were among our highlights during this summer's Savor Festival. For one night only, Meridian Pint is putting six of them on draft: Mischief, a strong golden ale; the rare 7-Grain Saison; the spicy, complex Trade Winds Tripel; the refreshing Orchard White; the seasonal Autumn Maple, which is made with a variety of spices, maple syrup and yams (for sweetness); and the rich, dark Ragbrod, made with rye bread.
It's rare to see beers from Utah's Unita brewery, and even rarer to see them on draft. But Galaxy Hut has somehow managed to snag three kegs of the very limited Crooked Line series. Detour Double IPA, Labyrinth Black Ale and Tilted Smile Imperial Pilsner will be tapped at 5 p.m. If you're curious, you might want to arrive on the early side -- each keg holds about only five gallons, or 40 pints.
