FRONTIER SPIRIT

Where to Get a Vintage Jackknife Today

The Mutiny pop-up at Redeem has changed things up again, this time going for a pioneer theme. Which means Prospector Co.–brand shaving products, vintage pocketknives, Red Wing boots, tools and pipes. And other stuff for your covered wagon.

Available now at Mutiny at Redeem, 1734 14th St NW, 202-332-7447

Saturday
UD - A Crash Course in DC Punk at a Library
HARDCORE

A Crash Course in DC Punk at a Library

Hanging out in a library: not very punk. Hanging out in a library with an exhibit devoted to the DC hardcore scene in the ’70s and ’80s: slightly more punk. You can breeze through fliers, posters and photos of bands like Fugazi and Minor Threat. The Man has no chance in here.

UD - Sci-Fi Burlesque and Vodka
COSMO

Sci-Fi Burlesque and Vodka

This just in: today is the 51st anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first human spaceflight. If you forgot to take the day off, no worries. Just head to Artisphere on Saturday for sci-fi-themed burlesque, live music, retro-futuristic art installations... and plenty of vodka. It’s what Yuri would have wanted.

Apr 14, 8pm-2am, $25 ($30 at door), Artisphere, 1101 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA, 202-321-2878, tickets here 

Sunday
UD - A Treasure Trove of Summer Shirts
GETTING YOUR GOAT

A Treasure Trove of Summer Shirts

The local designer behind Wolf vs Goat is at it again, this time with a new website stocked with overdyed oxfords and tattersalls and short-sleeve “picnic” shirts. For your next boating trip, they’re rolling out a “sno-cone” shirt in pink and blue. Works well with ice cream, too.

New site launches Apr 15, Wolf vs Goat

Monday
UD - Power Lunching, Now with More Meatballs
ADOUR-ABLE

Power Lunching with More Meatballs

You can never have enough downtown lunch options. Especially ones that have a four-star chef coming up with things like ham-and-ricotta tarts, ceviche with popcorn and lamb meatballs. Your deals are always sealed over meatballs.
