I know, I know, you’re afraid to leave the house for a beer tasting anymore without your WMDs because you want to be prepared in case you need to retaliate against some rogue state for making your neighborhood smell like burgers. (See how that was punny AND brought in current events? Sorry folks, I’ll probably be leaving DCBeer soon, I hear Leno needs writers of my ilk).

Anyway, leave the nukes at home when you head to Takoma Park’s 2nd Annual “Nuclear-Free” Beerfest this Saturday from 4-7pm. (The joke, in case you don’t get it, is that Takoma Park is a designated nuclear-free zone.)

The event promises “beer from the leading area microbreweries, food from area restaurants, and great music.” Unfortunately I have not been able to ascertain which leading area microbreweries will be there, but there aren’t any bad area microbreweries, so whoever shows up you can be sure you’ll be getting quality craft beer. Music will be provided by the Washington Area Music Association’s award winning band Karen Collins and the Backroads Band.

The event will be held at the Historic Cady Lee Mansion (7064 Eastern Avenue NW, D.C. at the corner of Eastern Avenue and Piney Branch Road and just 2 blocks from the Takoma Park station). The event costs $35, $25 of which is tax-deductible. The proceeds go to support the Takoma Foundation Community Grants Foundation. For more information check out TakomaFoundation.org

Go, relax, drink, eat, and don’t fret about being irradiated. Won’t it be nice to spend a Saturday without that fear looming over you? Cheers!
