Things to do for December 02, 2010

The Weekender

Football Beer, Lots of Cookies and Jack Ruby

The weekend is still bleeding gravy.

Thursday
An Exclusive Brunch, Plus Boozy Truffles
PERK ALERT

An Exclusive Brunch, Plus Boozy Truffles

No one serves brunch in this town without your approval. So before Westend Bistro launches its new brunch, they’re holding two previews exclusively for Perks members. Plus: Perks brings you the Black Tie Collection, a set of boozy chocolate truffles. Not guaranteed to pair well with brunch.

Wolf vs Goat Takes to the Web
SALE-ING

Wolf vs Goat Takes to the Web

Arlington-based designers Wolf vs Goat—they of the famous “Before Dinner” and “After Dinner” shirts with the secret pocket—are now selling their wares online. To celebrate, they’re knocking 20% to 50% off gear like peacoats, work pants and even sweats. For your Rocky-like early-morning runs.

Craft Cocktailing at Granville Moore’s
DOCTOR IS IN

Craft Cocktailing at Granville Moore’s

Granville’s has long been your H Street go-to for rare Belgian beers. But now it’s your spot for a new array of cocktails like the Jack Ruby (bourbon, ruby port, rhubarb-flavored bitters) and the Love Tonic (homemade lychee liqueur, lemongrass-infused vodka, tonic, burnt orange peel). Which already sounds more successful than The Love Guru.

Saturday
Band of Outsiders and Bloodys
MARY, MARY

Band of Outsiders and Bloodys

Warning: your Saturday may involve shopping. But it’s okay, for two reasons: first, a trunk show debuting the Band of Outsiders holiday collection—think light flannels and great-fitting button-downs. Second: gratis Bloody Marys. The cornerstone of any inspired shopping excursion.

Dec 4, 11am-2pm, no cost, Lost Boys, 1033 31st St NW, 202-333-0093

Sunday
Half-Off Beer at Barcode
GAME DAY

Half-Off Beer at Barcode

By now, you may have been to Barcode’s giant bar for happy-hour pizza or late-night cocktails. Here are three more reasons: 10 flat-screens, a giant projection screen and half off every beer on their extensive list, all day, from Anchor’s Christmas Ale to cans of Porkslap. Which goes well with pigskin.

Sundays, open-close, Barcode, 1101 17th St NW (enter on L St), 202-955-9001

Next Sunday
Cookies and Milk at PS 7’s
THE WHITE STUFF

Cookies and Milk at PS 7’s

Cookies for lunch: not always a great idea. Cookies with boozy milk for lunch: always a great idea. PS 7’s is kicking off a series of food and cocktail classes with this how-to on all kinds of cookies, paired with milk tipples like coquito, scorched milk and cereal milk cocktails. It’s what Santa really wants.

Dec 12, noon, $65, PS 7’s, 777 I St NW, reserve at 202-742-8550
