Anti-Defamation League Fundraiser at Bar Melusine
At the end of 2016, Renee Erickson announced that she and the Sea Creatures group will be closing their Capitol Hill oyster bar for an evening to host a fundraiser. And yes, it’s on Inauguration Day. It’s not a protest against PEOTUS per se, but rather a moment to commune and raise funds for the Anti-Defamation League, a nonprofit organization that fights hate speech and bigotry. Head to Bar Melusine from 5 to 7:30 or 7:30 to 10, and do RSVP.

The Interbay brewery is celebrating two years of beer with two days of festivities from noon until 10. They’ll be pouring through over 30 beers from Belgian-style strong ales to saisons aplenty.

Womxn’s March cupcakes, available in either chocolate or vanilla, will be served at all cafes on Saturday. You can also pre-order online.

Likewise, The Atlantic in the Central District will be open at 8am for power breakfast needs; arrive early for optimal seating or pull up a stool at the bar.

F*** This Sh*t: Planned Parenthood Fundraiser at Dino’s Tomato Pie
Okay, this event isn’t mincing words about reproductive rights and the forthcoming threats thereof. However, Dino’s Tomato Pie is mincing up some pizza ingredients to top their righteously charred, thick-crusted Sicilian pie. All of Monday’s pizza proceeds will be donated to Planned Parenthood—and your soul’s piggybank of good deeds. At 8, Tuf supplies the tunes. Drink specials and slices will be available all night.
