Seize sur Vingt: The Editors’ Picks

This week, Perks is outfitting you for fall with a collection of shirts, shoes and accessories hand-selected by our editors from Seize sur Vingt’s line of updated classics, all up to half off. To be clear: half off the price. You’ll get all of whatever you order.

Gratis Art at the Phillips Collection
THE MODERN THINGS

Gratis Art at the Phillips Collection

Following its recent fire, the Phillips is going all Smithsonian on you and waiving admission charges for the month, letting you start your date off the way you should—with conversation- starting exhibits like Predominately White Paintings, for which you’ll gladly make an exception to your no-white-after-Labor Day rule.

A Pop-Up Pants Store at George
PANTS PARTY

A Pop-Up Pants Store at George

So Tucker Blair, Bonobos and the Knot Belt Company have taken it upon themselves to do a one-night pop-up store with their fall merch... in a bar. Which makes this the only time you can safely ask a lady to hold your pants while you get her a drink.

Sep 9, 6-9pm, George, 3251 Prospect St NW, 202-333-1735

Friday
A Shave and Some Bourbon at Lost Boys
GET LOST

A Shave and Some Bourbon at Lost Boys

You might not have known it, but Friday is Fashion’s Night Out. No, stay with us. Follow the barbershop quartet (really) to Lost Boys, where you can get a shoe shine, style consultations, some bourbon and a full straight-razor shave. Don’t get shaving cream on your new jeans.

Sep 10, 6-11pm, $20 or $50 with shave, Lost Boys, 1033 31st St NW, 202-333-0093, tickets here

UD HOOKUP: Tell us why you like bourbon with your shopping, and we’ll reserve a ticket for the best response.

Sunday
A Brunchy Tour of Spain at Taberna
SPANISH SUNDAYS

A Brunchy Tour of Spain at Taberna

Your Spanish might be rusty, but take it from us: if you know the words for lobster, oysters and ham, you’ll be all set. The Spanish dining room is beginning Sunday brunch and highlighting a different region of Spain every week. This week, you’ve got Galicia. Next week, the world.

Monday
Two Wings for a Buck at Kitchen
EARN YOUR WINGS

Two Wings for a Buck at Kitchen

We know you’ll be behind the Ravens on Monday. Actually, we don’t know that. But we do know that you’ll be behind heaping plates of wings. The Glover Park watering hole is serving up their baked and grilled wings with three sauces for 50 cents apiece.

Mondays, Kitchen, 2404 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-333-3877
