How it works

Save money by buying your ticket online -- they'll be $30 on the day of the event. Check in at Ben's Next Door with a government-issued I.D. to receive a wristband and get to sippin'! Each stop will have drink specials and special guest DJs spinning some of your favorite hip hop songs.

If you can't have a good time with all that music and those drink specials, I don't know WHAT it would take.

Know before you go

Whenever adult beverages are concerned, you're better off taking a rideshare. Street parking is crazy along U Street anyway, so why risk it? If you want to take the Metro in, U Street/Cardozo is your closest stop.
