Take a second and picture your perfect summer escape from the hustle and bustle of D.C. Now, we're not mind readers, but it's probably a fair guess that your summer fantasy included cold beer, barbecue and an afternoon of lazy shenanigans on a major body of water. And if that's the case, you're in luck -- because that fantasy can become a reality on the River Tubing and Brewery Tour. On the day of the trip, your only responsibility is meeting the bus at one of the pickup locations -- and after that, all you've got to do is take it easy. The bus will whisk you away to a three-hour river tubing experience where you -- and your floating cooler, if you want to bring one -- will drift down the beautiful Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers. Once you've had your fill, hop out of the river for a hearty BBQ lunch, followed by a quick drive over to the award winning Vanish Farmhouse Brewery. [less-]

If you're a fan of alt comedy from the '90s, 2000s and beyond, chances are you're already a fan of Brian Posehn and don't even know it. The large, bearded comedian first gained a national audience as a slightly less large, clean-shaven writer and performer on HBO's cult favorite "Mr. Show", which led to appearances in hit sitcoms like "Seinfeld", "NewsRadio", "Friends" and "Just Shoot Me". Known for his self-deprecating sense of humor and lifelong love of comic books and heavy metal, Posehn joined Patton Oswalt, Zach Galifianakis and Maria Bamford on the "Comedians of Comedy" tour, and starred in the documentary and Comedy Central series of the same name. Posehn's recent highlights include a hilarious role as gay neighbor Brian in "The Sarah Silverman Program", three stand-up specials including 2013's "The Fartist" and recurring roles on "New Girl" and "The Big Bang Theory". See him perform at Arlington Cinema 'N' Drafthouse. [less-]
