The Weekender

White Truffles, Nine Bars and Football

The weekend is going rogue.

Steak: It’s What’s for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, you’re thinking beyond the turkey—by flanking your game bird with assorted chops, ribs and filets from Robinson’s Prime Reserve. $65 gets you $100 of the same premium meats that presidents, royalty and rock stars have enjoyed. Which works out, considering your Thanksgiving guest list (we’re looking at you, Bush Senior).

HOLA ABRIGO

Abrigo Opens Tonight in Midtown

Sometimes you just need some anonymity. A discreet little place just off the beaten path. So tonight, plan on holing up at Abrigo with anything from ceviche to Vaca Frita (seasoned Cuban steak with sweet plantains) from the Mexican/Cuban menu. What you choose to do with the rest of your night... also anonymous.

Opening tonight, Abrigo, 818 Juniper St NE, 404-963-7673

Saturday
Drinking Your Way Through the O4W
ELECTRIC AVENUES

Drinking Your Way Through the O4W

You may have heard, but the Edgewood corridor is sort of having a moment right now. So this weekend is as good as any to strap on your bar-hopping shoes and catch an endless stream of electronic music DJs performing at nine different imbiberies like P’cheen, Noni’s and the Sound Table. Yes, there’s a shuttle. And yes, we recommend this.

Sunday
Morton’s Goes All Football on Us
SUNDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Morton’s Goes All Football on Us

When it comes to Sunday and Monday nights, you’re booked. Solid. And nine times out of nine, it involves a cold beer, the NFL and now the bar at Morton’s. Because that’s where you’ll be sifting through half-price petite filet sandwiches, crab cake BLTs and smoked salmon pizzas on game nights. We’ll hold your calls.

Monday
Five Courses of Excess at the St. Regis
WHITE OUT

Five Courses of Excess at the St. Regis

Some nights you just need to bathe in the sweet, sweet waters of excess. Next Monday is one of those nights. You’ll find yourself at the St. Regis, listening to live jazz and casually working your way through five courses of the elusive white truffle (think Porcini and Parmesan Risotto with Shaved White Truffles). Your black truffle night is Wednesday.

Wednesday
Wild Boars and Bourbon at 4th & Swift
GAME ON

Wild Boars and Bourbon at 4th & Swift

Well, actually, this particular Wednesday is your wild game and bourbon night. Because 4th & Swift is having a four-course game dinner involving such oddities as buffalo tartare, pheasant rillettes and wild boar BLTs, all backed by the necessary amount of bourbon and Bordeaux. Or the unnecessary amount.

Nov 17, 7pm, $100, 4th & Swift, 621 North Ave NE, reserve at 678-904-0160
