The Needle: Saunter Edition

Drink Local, Root Local: You'll finally be able to buy local beers from DC Brau, 3 Stars, Port City, and Mad Fox at Nationals Park—just not tonight as initially announced, because graphics for the cart selling the brews weren't ready yet. Tomorrow, head to section 139, grab your local beer, and then make like a local fan and heckle the Dodgers. +2

Blockheads: Whatever you do this weekend, don't waste your time live-tweeting an ice block. -2
