Supplying all materials, Art By The Glazz's artist-led painting sessions kindle brush-wielding talents during three-hour classes held on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. New artists capture shapes and shadows inspired by a number of pastoral- or wine-themed templates, with step-by-step instruction from pigment professionals. One complimentary glass of wine emboldens the pigment-shy, and those with a thirst for more can visit an onsite cash bar. Aprons protect against stray paint, wine drops, and the tears of fruit trapped in a beautiful but airless eternal present, although Art By The Glazz recommends wearing old clothes. Finished masterpieces chaperone each artist home, ready to be mounted on a wall or hung from the dining-room chandelier.

During Cookies and Milk sessions, kids or teens settle down with a complimentary dessert amid canvases ripe for realizing 2-D tableaux. During each session, one featured painting of a subject, such as the beach, Green Eggs and Ham, or Mickey Mouse, is perched mid-studio to kindle students’ imaginary fires. The company also hosts corporate team-building events, small groups, and birthday parties, giving guests an enjoyable ice-breaking activity.

Uncork'd Art's instructors invite artists of all skill levels to let their creativity flow while practicing no-pressure painting. During their adult classes, experienced local artists unlock latent talents with a complimentary glass of wine, a brought-from-home snack, and muses equipped with brass knuckles. Instructors lead students in painting experiments during Just For Fun sessions, and provided materials allow for the creation of acrylic-adorned masterpieces. Throughout the 6-week art- and wine-appreciation course, students learn theories and techniques, sample fragrant vinos, and produce three finished paintings. Uncork'd also offers private parties for groups of 10 or more, as well as happy-hour classes, which include helpful instruction with complimentary wine and supplies. Prospective pupils can schedule their next creative frenzy by perusing the online calendar.

Today's $10 Groupon gets you $20 worth of legal spirits in the Prohibition-themed 18th Amendment bar. Speakeasies were rollicking drinkeries where fans of booze joyously evaded prohibition laws, live music accompanied illicit fluids, and live fluids distracted everyone from noticing the illicit music. The backstair basement bar at 18th Amendment (named after the amendment that outlawed "intoxicating liquors") hearkens back to those sepia-toned days of men inconspicuously smuggling booze in oversized pants. The furniture is old whiskey boxes, beer barrels, and pews; stained glass, bar rails, and an iron-gated liquor room turn the spot (located at 613 Pennsylvania Ave., SE) into a gangster's getaway.

Adjacent to the P Street Corridor and Dupont Circle, the Bier Baron Tavern is more than just a casual eatery, with lodgings upstairs in the Baron Hotel. The tavern itself exudes an old-time European feeling, a bit like an aging London saloon. And for sheer entertainment value, tavern customers have plenty of choices: playing pool in the billiards room, chatting with pals in one of the interconnecting dining areas or enjoying one of the featured performers that dot the upcoming calendar. Pairing one of the kitchen’s casual eats, like a duck breast burger slider, with a brew just adds to the overall delight. After all, this place features about 500 different international beers, lagers, ales, stouts and porters, from Germany to Brazil, and all points in between.

Using a palette of freshly sliced fruit and house-blended purées, bartenders create masterful signature cocktails ranging from the vodka-infused strawberry lemonade to the cucumber-basil martini. Zeba’s cultivated list of draft beers—crafted by microbrews from across the country—fill glasses to the brim or spur wagers among bar patrons by threatening to overspill their pints with fluffy white heads. Patrons can sip their drinks at one of Zeba Bar and Grill's four distinct areas: the main bar, dance floor, front patio, or outdoor deck. The one-page menu presents a thoughtful selection of upscale bar eats such as spice-marinated chicken kebabs and made-from-scratch pizza to complement both adventurous and traditional drink choices.
