UD - Your Ties from the 1950s Are Here


Your Ties from the 1950s Are Here

Anybody can wear a great tie. Not everyone can wear one from the Eisenhower administration. The gents at Hugh & Crye have been sourcing some cool lapel pins and ties from the 1950s from local collectors—skinny wool ties, wider ties emblazoned with golf patterns. Yeah, apparently there are 1950s tie collectors.
Available now, $55-$65, Hugh & Crye Vintage, 202-250-3807
UD - Oyster Deals, Extended Hours at Hank’s


Oyster Deals, Extended Hours at Hank’s

Hank’s is solving problems. Problems like finding a good deal on oysters as the clock nears midnight. Its giant cocktail bar is now open until midnight on weeknights and 1am on weekends. Show up from 10pm to midnight and get 50% off the raw bar, shrimp and ceviche. Then start thinking about breakfast.
Now open extended hours, Hank’s Oyster Bar, 633 Pennsylvania Ave SE, 202-733-1971


José Andrés Has a New Tequila Bar

If you made use of the cheap-theater-tickets place next to Oyamel, sorry. It’s gone. In its stead: Oyamel’s new tequila-focused bar, replete with butterflies, partitioned booths and a mural of a local model. Pop in next week for afternoon tastings as their annual tequila and mezcal festival gets under way. Feliz tequila.
Opens Jun 14 at 5pm, festival Jun 17-30, Oyamel, 401 7th St NW, 202-628-1005, see the slideshow
UD - Bourbon Day in a Secret Bar


Bourbon Day in a Secret Bar

The first thing to know about Friday: it’s National Bourbon Day. The second thing to know: Jack Rose is opening their private basement bar for the night and pouring rare vintage bourbon flights from Evan Williams and Elijah Craig, some dating back to 1990. The golden age of bourbon.
Jun 14, 5pm-close, Jack Rose Dining Saloon, 2007 18th St NW, 202-588-7388
UD - Going Whole Hog at Steve Case’s Winery


Going Whole Hog at Steve Case’s Winery

Sunday would be a nice time to check out Steve Case’s winery with Dad. They’re barbecuing whole hogs on the great lawn and pouring you plenty of wine and cider. Get there by 1:30pm, so you and Dad can take on all comers in the cornhole tournament. Nobody tosses a beanbag like your old man.
Jun 16, 10:30am-4:30pm, $25 and up, Early Mountain Vineyards, 6109 Wolftown-Hood Rd, Madison, VA, 540-948-9005, tickets here
