A quick snapshot of what's going on this week in Fairfax and nearby.

Drink Up to Save a Pup, Learn About Fall and Winter Garden Survival, and More

Drink Up, Save a Pup!That’s the name of the game this Tuesday night, Aug. 20 at the Fairfax Dogfish Head Alehouse, when 15 percent of the day’s tabs benefit HART – Homeless Animals Rescue Teams – for expenses like vaccines, food, animal transport and more. The bartenders have even concocted a special drink – HART of the Dog – just for the occasion. Raffle prizes and live music will also be going on all day, so come on your lunch break, for after-work drinks, or dinner. Dogfish Head Alehouse is located at 13041 Lee Jackson Memorial Hwy. in Fairfax. For more information, click here.


Want to keep your garden going strong through the winter? The folks at Prior Unity Garden in Fairfax can show you how, with fall and winter gardening structures. Their expert gardeners say, “Garden structures like hoop houses and cold frames are a part of how we extend our winter season and over-winter crops. These can be used even in small townhouse gardens.” Find out more about how to do this in their class, “Fall and Winter Garden Structures,” this Tuesday from 6-7:30 p.m. at their Fairfax location, at 3017 James St. To register, as well as see all the other classes and services they offer, visit their website here.


Do you have a young daughter you want to grow up happy, healthy and confident? Then maybe Girls On the Run of Northern Virginia is for you! GOTR is a 10- to 12-week after-school program that inspires local girls in grades third to eighth through a “fun, experience-based curriculum” that creatively integrates running. Refistration for the next session starts Monday. There is also a fun pub crawl in Arlington Monday night that raises money for the program. For more information about the program, the pub crawl or both, visit the website.
