The Weekender

Breakfast All Day, Partying with the French and Pizza

The weekend wears its flag pants year-round.

Friday
Rooftop Drinks and Cigars. Plus: Half Off Your Next Shirt.
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Rooftop Drinks and Cigars. Plus: Half Off Your Next Shirt.

This week, Perks is taking you to the rooftop, with half off drinks and cigars at Eden Lounge’s summer kickoff party. You’ll also get half off your next Jeremy Argyle shirt, cut with just enough tail to be tucked, but not so much that you can’t wear the shirt untucked. It’s like the Golden Mean of shirting.

All-Day Breakfast at Ted’s Bulletin
SILVER BULLETIN

All-Day Breakfast at Ted’s Bulletin

The Hill’s new throwback diner is throwing caution to the wind and dishing up breakfast at all hours. We recommend the Walk of Shame Burrito—sirloin steak, scrambled eggs, hash browns, cheddar cheese and green chili sauce. Actual walk of shame not required.

Two-Slice Lunch at Pete’s Apizza
BACKHAND SLICE

Two-Slice Lunch at Pete’s Apizza

Your go-to spot for New Haven-style slices is serving up a lunch deal of two slices of cheese and a Boylan’s fountain soda for six bucks. Because your lunch has been missing foldability.

Saturday
Partying, French Embassy-Style
PASSPORT PARTY

Partying, French Embassy-Style

You’re getting used to this whole Independence Day thing. In fact, you’ll even latch onto another country’s celebrations if it involves an open bar and freshwater prawns with fresh morels. They’ll even have a mock fortress for you to storm. Okay, not really.

Jul 10, 7pm-midnight, $85-$150, Embassy of France, 4101 Reservoir Rd NW, tickets here

Sunday
Pro Cycling Down Pennsylvania Ave
ON TWO WHEELS

Pro Cycling Down Pennsylvania Ave

You’re always looking for new forms of entertainment while you’re downing your brunch Bloody Marys. World-class athletes on bikes qualifies. While the races loop around Pennsylvania Ave, Ninth Street and 13th Street, you’ll want to take up a perch in the window at Chef Geoff’s and watch them streak by. Or just stand on the sidewalk and pass the racers Bloodys as they cruise by.

Jul 11, races begin at 8:15am, main event at 1:15pm, Capital Criterium, Pennsylvania Ave NW (between Ninth and 13th St)

World Cup Finals at L2
FINAL KICK

World Cup Finals at L2

You’ve rarely darkened L2’s door during daylight. But the Georgetown lounge is opening early on Sunday, rolling in four projection TVs and brunch fare from Leopold’s next door. Just watch out for the wooden shoes on those Dutch fans.

Jul 11, 12:30pm, L2 Lounge, 3315 Cady’s Alley NW, 202-965-2001
