Helping Individual Prostitutes Survive, the nearly 20-year-old nonprofit that helps connect sex workers with much-needed medical and social resources in D.C., is making its foray into the art world. “Sex, Drugs, Rock ‘n’ Roll D.C.,” opening tonight, assembles pieces of art—mainly illustrations, paintings, and photographs—inspired and made by sex workers and drug users from the D.C. area and beyond.

In made-up-sounding holiday news, today is National Tequila Day. (Even if it’s not a real holiday, we won’t be complaining about this one.) In celebration, Mike Isabella‘s hip-Mex Georgetown spot Bandolero will be offering buy-one-get-one free tequila drinks from 4 p.m. to close. The deal applies to any of the restaurant’s 40-plus tequilas served neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail. Bandolero, 3241 M St. NW; (202) 625-4488 (Jessica Sidman)
