Mini Golf, Hangover Brunch and Festivus

The weekend laughs in the face of windchill.

Thursday

PERK ALERT

Your everyday jeans need the proper everyday belt. Preferably handmade in a river... in Tennessee. Enter Cause and Effect, a line of such belts in colors available exclusively through Perks for 40% off. Your everyday jeans will not be disappointed.

Your New Perch High Atop Arlington
GAMING

Your New Perch High Atop Arlington

This new second-floor, sports-centric hangout above Wilson Boulevard has all your game-day needs: lots of TVs (about three dozen), lots of wings (six kinds, to be exact, including Bourbon BBQ and Candied Garlic) and lots of beers (a dozen on draft and two dozen more in bottles). For this, you may even watch the NFC West.

H Street CC Registering Golf Leagues
PUTT-PUTT

H Street CC Registering Golf Leagues

You’re familiar with a post-tippling round of mini golf at the diabolically tough course here. So put your local knowledge to use. The bar is registering teams of four to eight to begin a six-week season, with two weeks of playoffs. You’ve always had a great short game.

A Festivus Miracle at Old Glory
POLE POSITION

A Festivus Miracle at Old Glory

Heads up, Seinfeld/food fans: the Georgetown BBQ spot is serving Festivus dishes like meatloaf and chocolate M&M cake all month, culminating with a tasting menu and an open-mic Airing of Grievances on the 23rd. Watch out for jimmy legs, regifting and yada yada yada...

Through Dec 23, Old Glory, 3139 M St NW, 202-337-3406

Saturday
Chocolate Feasting at the Ritz
DARK TIMES

Chocolate Feasting at the Ritz

Amid your endless cycle of holiday soirees and personal appearances, you’ll want to make time for something more intimate. And chocolate-y. Like this date-ready chocolate buffet. Think chocolate-bacon ice cream, black forest cake and a candy cane bar, all paired up with champagne cocktails. (Note: don’t bring your dog.)

Dec 11 and 18, $35, The Lobby Cafe, 1150 22nd St NW, reserve at 202-974-5566

Sunday
Brunching at a Beer Bar
MOORE BACON

Brunching at a Beer Bar

You’re no stranger to H Street in the early AM hours. The early PM hours, not so much. This weekend is your chance to change that, as Granville’s now rolls out brunch fare like French Toast Sticks and Bison Brisket Bruschetta. Go ahead, do the bison.
