Things to do for August 05, 2010

The Weekender

Breakfast Pizza, Secret Hot Dogs and the Beatles

The weekend just arrived at training camp.

Thursday
Beer and the White Album at Phillips
OB-LA-DI

Beer and the White Album at Phillips

Your lineup for this evening: beer, the Beatles and modern art. The common thread: awesome guitar solos. Also: the color white. Which is why ChurchKey’s beermeister Greg Engert will be pouring you white beers, a DJ will be spinning a White Album-heavy set, and the Phillips Collection will have all the white art you care to look at. Just don’t go all helter-skelter...

Dog and Beer for $7 at Bourbon Steak
BALLPARK NOT REQUIRED

Dog and Beer for $7 at Bourbon Steak

You’re in Georgetown. The snack urge hits. So into the air-conditioned confines of the Bourbon Steak bar you go. You’ll ask for the special, off-menu dog, and receive a pork-and-beef treat with housemade mustard and relish, paired with a craft beer. Which beats that off-menu dog you had once at RFK.

Throughout August at the bar, $7, Bourbon Steak, 2800 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 202-944-2026

Friday
Desperados Burgers Opens on U
WITH CHEESE

Desperados Burgers Opens on U

We’re not sure when, but sometime this weekend, you’ll crave a burger. A beer. And an escape. Get all three at the new dark, underground burger dive in the old Polly’s space. On the menu: Cajun-spiced burgers, six taps and New Orleans-style rum punch. Not on the menu: Eagles songs about cowboys.

Bar open now, kitchen opens Aug 6 at noon, Desperados Burgers and Bar, 1342 U St NW, 202-299-0443

Saturday
Breakfast Pizzas at Liberty Tree
LOBSTAH

Breakfast Pizzas at Liberty Tree

At its new brunch, the H Street tavern will be pulling something special out of the oven: a pizza with mozzarella, home fries, sunny-side eggs and maple syrup. But if you’re feeling more New England-y, there’s the Eggs Kennebunkport, an eggs Benedict with lobster—sort of the George H.W. Bush of brunch.

Deals, Doughnuts and Springer
SALE-ING

Deals, Doughnuts and Springer

Before you stock up on discounted summer threads at Redeem or Rue 14, you’ll want to stop at the pop-up stand in front of Cork Market for lemonade and a fresh doughnut. (Nothing puts you in shopping mode like a doughnut.) Cap your journey at the Studio Theatre, where you can buy props like nurse outfits and adult baby costumes from Jerry Springer: The Opera. What you do with them is your business.
