Things to do for October 28, 2010

The Weekender

Bottomless Brunch, Wrestling Costumes and Election Night

The weekend votes early and often.

Saturday
Bottomless Brunch at Masa 14
BLOODY BRILLIANT

Bottomless Brunch at Masa 14

As of this weekend, you can get Masa’s Lemon Lagers and Rye-Bacon Bloody Marys—not to mention breakfast pizza and tenderloin Benedict—in never-ending form. Because the best brunches have no end (and if you’re feeling philosophical, they may have no beginning, either).

Sat-Sun, 11am-2:30pm, $35,  Masa 14, 1825 14th St NW, 202-328-1414

Wrestling... with Beer
MASKED MARVEL

Wrestling... with Beer

Halloween’s about living out your deepest fantasies: dressing as your favorite wrestler, for instance. On Saturday, Rustico encourages you to don the cape and mask, while sampling a one-of-a-kind beer brewed at Sierra Nevada by the bar’s beer director. Note: dressing as Linda McMahon does not count.

Oct 30, 4-7pm, Rustico, 827 Slaters Ln, Alexandria, VA, 703-224-5051

Sunday
Cotton Club Redux at Marvin
HARLEM NIGHTS

Cotton Club Redux at Marvin

Your top hat and tails have been going woefully underused. The remedy: this 1920s-style affair, complete with an Ellington-esque jazz band and three courses of lobster, veal chops and pork belly. You know, to go in your top hat.

Oct 31, 7pm and 9pm, $60 ($85 w/ wine), Marvin, 2007 14th St NW, reserve at 202-797-7171

Tuesday
Color-Coded Cocktails at the Rookery
RED SHOT, BLUE SHOT

Color-Coded Cocktails at the Rookery

On Election Night, you’ll get $1 blue or red shooters every time a state is called. Be an even better American by ordering the Scrib-Mac, the Rookery’s elevated take on the classic Big Mac. It actually looks like the picture.

Nov 2, The Rookery, 2519 Pennsylvania Ave NW,  202-223-6941 

UD HOOKUP: For Election Night, the Rookery is opening up its list to UD readers. Email to get on the list or to make dinner reservations.

Next Thursday
Early Thanksgiving at Johnny’s
WITH THE BAND

Early Thanksgiving at Johnny’s

Forget Halloween: let’s talk Thanksgiving. The Capitol Hill power spot is bringing you a night of turkey, trimmings, champagne... and a screening of your favorite Thanksgiving concert flick, Scorsese’s The Last Waltz. You’ve always considered The Band family.
