There’s still time to nominate local icons for Best of D.C.
T U E S D A Y
With former Washington Bullet Tom McMillen no longer serving as a Maryland congressman and Sen. Bill Bradley too busy discussing Finance Committee business, the Dunkin’ Donkeys may have to rely on a strong defense—never a favorite Democratic policy—to overcome the Fighting Elephants in the Gallaudet University Congressional Basketball Classic. Bullet Coach Wes Unseld (a closet conservative?) will try to lead Republicans Duke “Blue Devils” Cunningham, Cliff “Levingston” Stearns, Dr. “Jay” Dickey, and others past Bernie Bickerstaff’s Democratic stars, led by Edolphus “Going To” Towns, “Get Outta the” Lane Evans, Dick “Never Let Them See You” Swett, and D.C.’s own Eleanor “Send ‘Em” Holmes Norton. At 7:30 p.m. at Gallaudet University’s Field House, 800 Florida Ave. NE. $3-5. (202) 651-5505. (David Plotz)
