The weekend doesn’t really begin until the back nine on Sunday.


UD - A Month of Grilled Cheese at Saint-Ex

A Month of Grilled Cheese at Saint-Ex

This just in: April is National Grilled Cheese Month (in case you ever doubted the power of the grilled cheese industry). Anyway, Saint-Ex is answering the call with five limited-edition sandwiches, piling on stuff like eggs, apples and breakfast sausage. Actually, better take the rest of the month off.


Available through April, Café Saint-Ex, 1847 14th St NW, 202-265-7839


UD - H Street’s New Everyday Bike Shop

H Street’s New Everyday Bike Shop

As much as you may like bikes, you have no desire to wear spandex and climb the Pyrenees. Enter this new H Street shop, which specializes in stylish upright bikes from London perfect for zipping around the city, as well as helmets that look like your favorite fedora. But harder.


UD - A One-Off Brunch at Sonoma

A One-Off Brunch at Sonoma

You’ll need to fuel up before your date with Jim Nantz and the azaleas in the afternoon. May we suggest Sonoma’s limited-engagement Easter brunch. They’re doing duck hash with duck confit and deep-fried egg, short ribs and eggs, and housemade donuts. Your red polo: optional.


UD - Seven Courses of Thomas Jefferson

Seven Courses of Thomas Jefferson

You hold these truths to be self-evident: that you’d like to tuck into seven courses honoring Thomas Jefferson’s 269th birthday and inspired by his travels around Europe. Each course will be paired with a French red, a madeira or another of Tom’s favorite wines. Which Adams would have hated.

UD - Tickets on Sale for Flying Dog’s Run

Tickets on Sale for Flying Dog’s Run

You’ll endure a trial or two for a proper reward. Like cargo nets, climbing walls and lots and lots of mud spread out over this Parris Island–style 5K race. At the end: food, music and kegs upon kegs of Flying Dog. Which you could also use to wash off the mud.


Tickets available now for Apr 21, 10am, $65 before Apr 9 ($75 after), Mud Dog Run, 8259 Liberty Rd, Frederick, MD, tickets here
