Seriously, it has become clear that this town can’t get enough of Top Gun. I’m being bombarded with requests to love Goose and Maverick and say douchebaggy things such as “I feel the need…. for speed.” If you love Top Gun, you best flee your cubicle RIGHT NOW and head to one or both of the following:

Starting at 9, get your 80s on at Tattoo Bar, 1413 K St. NW. Open bar for the ladies between 10 and 11.

Acacia has lived in DC since graduating from Vassar College with degrees in English and Italian. She cries daily at the thought of her imminent departure from this beloved city, as she will begin a Fulbright teaching grant in the Campania region, Italy come October. She’ll be blogging that experience too. Get at her: acaciaO@welovedc.com or follow her on twitter.

  1. Ugh, that movie had one redeeming quality- the F-14A Tomcat. And I can find film of those on Youtube.

    I’m in for other 80s flicks, but that one… no, nonononono NO.

  2. But wait! there’s more– it’s also playing on July 3rd at the Rosslyn film fest.
