Food: DC Brau at Beer Week
For several years now, every microbrew worth drinking has had a rep in D.C. It was only a matter of time before the District got a brewery that could compete with beers from outside the realm. That brewery is DC Brau, the first production brewery located in Washington, D.C. The various brews are distinct from their peers due to the fact that they come in cans, and are named for seminal events in D.C. history. The Corruption IPA, for instance, is a reference to Henry Clay's alliance with John Quincy Adams, termed "The Corrupt Bargain"; The Citizen refers to the passage of the 23rd Amendment in 1963, which gave D.C. residents the right to vote for president and vice president. As part of D.C. Beer Week, D.C. Brau will be unveiling its newest beer, Embers of the Deceased, made in cooperation with Bluejacket Brewery, opening later this year in Southeast. August 17 at ChurchKey, 1337 14th St. NW. Phone: (202) 567-2576. Web: churchkeydc.com.

LeBron James' 'I can't breathe' T-shirt the latest display of politics on the playing field

Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James on Monday night during pregame warmups wore an “I can’t breathe” T-shirt, referring to Eric Garner, who died after a New York police officer placed him in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes. The shirt, one of several featuring the slogan that have been seen around the league in recent days after a grand jury declined to indict the officer last week, is just one in a long history of political statements made by athletes on the playing field. Here are some others.
