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).
Things to do for November 24, 2010
Redskins, Rock Gods and 25 Cocktails
The weekend has dibs on the drumstick.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
