Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
Yes, the DC Weirdo Show takes place at the Bier Baron Tavern, a bar in Dupont Circle. Please bring ID and be over 21.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is free street parking available. We are fond of 23rd Street for good, free parking closeby after 6:30 pm but always give yourself time to park in DC. The Dupont Circle metro station (red line) is your best bet for public transportation. Take the Q Street exit to walk towards the Bier Baron (approx. 10 min walk).

What can/can't I bring to the event?
The DC Weirdo Show loves birthday parties. You are welcome to bring birthday cake into the venue. Please tell us when you buy your tickets in advance if you are celebrating. YES bring your friends, YES bring your weird!
Even Cameras?
We have house photographers who handle that and we will post glorious moments from the show on our website ( Unless specifically asked by a performer, please no cameras and keep your phones in your pocket. Thanks!

Is it reserved seating?
Unless you buy a "Weirdos, Party of Four" VIP 4-ticket package, it is open table seating at the Bier Baron. We recommend arriving early to secure a good spot - or go for a Weirdos, Party of Four and we'll hold a sweet table for you + three of your favorite weirdos!

Is this show accessible?
There are six concrete steps leading up to the Bier Baron, three more up to the upstairs bar where the show is. The space is too narrow to accomodate a wheelchair and the bathrooms are inaccessible for wheelchairs. We are pursuing ASL interpretation for our shows.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
To contact the producers of the DC Weirdo Show, email us at michelle(at) or mark(at)
To contact the Bier Baron, call 202-293-1887.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Nope. There will be a list at the door; just show your ID and you're good to go.

What is the refund policy?
In the rare event our show is canceled (weather, etc.), you can use your ticket towards a future show. We play every month, so you have plenty of future opportunities. We'll be in touch if that ever happens. All other sales are final - hey, it's only fifteen bucks and you are supporting local artists. That's so nice of you!

I would like to help; I would like to see the show for free; I would like to sell goodies at your show!
