Beltway Bears hopes you'll come out and join us on Thursday, April 25 for two exciting events. First, we'll gather at 7pm at Annie's Paramount Steak House on 17th Street in Dupont Circle to support Food and Friends during the annual Dining out for Life fundraiser. Annie's donates 100% of its sales to Food and Friends that night. Then, immediately following dinner, we'll head to the DC Eagle for our Spring Bar Night. $2 draft beers ($1 for paid Beltway Bears members) and spiked gummy bears will be sold. Not a paid member? No worries! We'll sign you up on the spot for only $20 for your annual dues. Dues help support two annual events, our summer BBQ and our Holiday Party in December. We hope to see you Thursday!!

If you're a bear or a friend of a bear, you have quite the weekend coming up. Traditionally, Mid-Atlantic Leather (MAL) weekend is the 3rd weekend of January. However, given that this year that also falls on Inaurguration Weekend, event planners moved MAL to the 2nd weekend of January. Much is happening that is bear-centric. Friday night, January 11 you will have two bear happy hours to chose from (or make both): DC Bear Crue at Town or Bear Nonsense at the Rock & Roll Hotel. Then on Saturday, January 12th, 495 Bears and Bear Nonsense are partnering for a fundraiser for Brother, Help Thyself. Their T Dance and Cigar Party begins at 3pm and lasts until 9pm at the Rock & Roll Hotel on H Street NE. NO COVER CHARGE at this event. Immediately following is 495 Bears' monthly Bears Can Dance party at the Green Lantern until closing. If you're still on your feet Saturday night, and we hope you are, the friendly DJs of BLOWOFF (Bob Mould and Rich Morel) are holding their MAL edition dance party starting at 11:30 pm at the 9:30 Club. Admission is $12.00 and a portion of the door receipts will be generously donated to Brother, Help Thyself.
THIS SATURDAY NIGHT! January 5th at PW's Sports Bar at 8:00 pm (during the monthly Bear Run)
