Tonight’s a special night that we’ve been waiting all summer for—the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises. So, in honor of everyone’s favorite caped crusader, today’s Casual Thursday is going to get a little batty.
The internet is full of batman-themed cocktails. Unfortunately, most of them are on a Bruce Wayne level of fanciness, and require ingredients like Crème de Violette (although those recipes are paired with a few college staples, Andre and Burnett’s, in their tutorials). If you’re feeling up the challenge, go ahead and attempt those drinks, and let us know how it goes! But we have something a little easier (but just as delicious) in mind.

If there’s one thing that we truly love here at 4E, it’s the phrase “unlimited beer tasting.” Lucky for us, Drink the District is hosting an event that is just that.
On July 28, Drink the District: Beer Edition will take place in Mount Vernon Triangle. Now usually when we hear about events like this, we end up bummed because it costs so much. Not this time! Tickets only cost $30, and they grant you access to unlimited tastings of over 40 craft beers from breweries like Flying Dog, Magic Hat, New Belgium and more. Check out who else will be in attendance here.
You can either day drink and head to the noon-4 session or make it your pregame at the 5-9 session. There will also be plenty of food trucks in attendance (though, sadly, not included in the ticket price). Everyone’s favorite grilled cheese truck, Big Cheese, as well as a pizza truck, tapas truck, Vietnamese truck, and a few different dessert trucks.
Mount Vernon Triangle is a pretty cool area, a short walk from either the Mt. Vernon Square/Convention Center or Gallery Place/Chinatown metro stops. After the event is over, there are plenty of bars and restaurants in Mount Vernon Square and Chinatown if you’re not ready to head back to Georgetown.
Drink the District is a great way to break out of the Georgetown Bubble for a day while learning about beers that aren’t Natty. Because drinking Natty is frowned upon in the real world (I know, it’s sad).
Bonus points: one of the producers and co-creators of Drink the District, John Leader, is a recent Georgetown grad! Supporting a fellow Hoya while getting drunk on fancy beer — what could be better?

So it’s Thursday, the unofficial beginning of the weekend, a time to relax and celebrate surviving another week. Thirsty Thursday is a mainstay during the school year, but most jobs won’t guarantee you every Friday off (I’m looking at you, MSB). And it’s probably best to not end your first week or two of work with a bad hangover – desks are harder to nap under than you think.
But we’re here for you no matter what you choose to do with your Thursday night. This is the first edition of Casual Thursday, where we welcome any and all definitions of casual. Every week, we’ll offer up a delicious drink recipe as well as something more subdued.
Feel free to make a drinking game of the latter with the former.

Wednesday night? Nothing to do? We here at The Fourth Edition would like to spice up the night (for those of you who are 21 or over) by offering up a drinking game to play during the GUSA VP debate! Hurry up and get yourself a 30 rack from Towne, curl up on the couch with your laptop and enjoy the show (we think it’s viewable here, but we aren’t actually sure). Rules after the jump.
