Bestselling author E.L. Doctorow discusses his 19th book, Andrew’s Brain, with readers at Politics & Prose tonight. It’s the story of a troubled cognitive neuroscientist who rattles off a list of problems to an unidentified man. Due to inclement weather, the reading was moved from Sidwell Friends School. 7 p.m. at 5015 Connecticut Ave. NW. Free. Guests who bought tickets for the original event will receive a refund.
The snow has begun and so have the food and drink specials. DC Reynolds is offering all day buy-one-get-one-free drink deals. Osteria Morini also has all-day happy hour. And Righteous Cheese at Union Market is offering its Alpine Alchemy cheese and beer flight, featuring mountain-style cheeses and winter beers, for $19 instead of the regular price of $24. Check Y&H for more deals throughout the day. (Jessica Sidman)
