Things to do for November 24, 2010

The Weekender

Redskins, Rock Gods and 25 Cocktails

The weekend has dibs on the drumstick.

Wednesday
Supper Clubbing Through India
PERK ALERT

Supper Clubbing Through India

This week, Perks is bringing you access to Hush Supper Club—a hush-hush dinner experience happening in a stately townhouse near U Street. Your exclusive menu: five courses from the vividly spiced culinary terrain of India’s Gujarat region, all vegetarian (in case you’re bringing Natalie Portman).

Friday
Donuts in a Paper Bag at Policy
LED ZEPPOLE

Donuts in a Paper Bag at Policy

There’s one thing your Thanksgiving feasts tend to lack: warm donuts. Remedy that deficiency this weekend with Policy’s new zeppoles—fried dough with ricotta and crème anglaise, shaken tableside in a paper bag full of powdered sugar. Which you couldn’t do with pumpkin pie.

Available now at Policy, 1904 14th St NW, 202-387-7654

Sunday
Introducing the Ham-Bourbon Bloody
WELL SEASONED

Introducing the Ham-Bourbon Bloody

On your Sunday morning, you’re no stranger to ham, nor to Bloody Marys. Just not always together. The Four Seasons is rolling out six new Bloodys for brunch, from a yuzu-wasabi-sake number to our favorite, The Big Easy, with ham, shrimp, BBQ rub and bourbon. But strangely, no Dennis Quaid.

Sundays beginning Nov 28, $14-$18, Seasons, 2800 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 202-944-2000

Monday
10 Courses of Pork at Dino
THREE LITTLE ONES

10 Courses of Pork at Dino

Come next week, your attention naturally turns from turkey to pork (or if it doesn’t, it should). Enter Dino, serving up Duroc, Kurobuta and Yorkshire pigs in 10 courses like Trotter Tots, pork belly and pancetta-wrapped radicchio. They’ll also have swine-friendly wines to pair. It’s what the pigs would want.

Hang with the Skins over Sandwiches
STEAK AND PIGSKIN

Hang with the Skins over Sandwiches

Your happy hour typically includes martinis. It often includes steak sandwiches. What it doesn’t usually include: Chris Cooley. Redskins players will be on hand at Morton’s for autographs and photos, and to endure your chalk-talk strategy sessions. Note: new Redskins may be subbed in during the last two minutes.

Nov 29, 7-8pm, no cost, Morton’s, 1050 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-955-5997

Tuesday
A New Drink Every Day at Bibiana
COUNTDOWN

A New Drink Every Day at Bibiana

Call it the Advent calendar of cocktails: every day for 25 days, downtown Italian power spot Bibiana is unveiling a new drink, many using unusual liquors like homemade blueberry grappa and rosebud liquor. Which also hits the spot when you’re sledding.

Begins Nov 30, $12, Bibiana, 12th and H Streets NW, 202-216-9550

Next Wednesday
Neko Case and Ben Folds at Nat Geo
CASING THE JOINT

Neko Case and Ben Folds at Nat Geo

You’ll gladly give up a happy hour if there’s talent in the room. And there is, starting next Wednesday, when National Geographic hosts Neko Case, Ben Folds and the Police’s Andy Summers to discuss their photographic work. We hear Neko is a genius with an f-stop.

Case Dec 1, Folds Dec 3, Summers Dec 4, 7:30pm, $20, 1600 M St NW, 202-857-7700
