Things to do for December 16, 2010
Hot Toddy Bars, Taco Windows and Ugly Sweaters
The weekend doesn’t compromise, but it does find common ground.
Dom by the Flute and Hot Toddies
When it comes to escaping the 20-degree chill, hotel lobbies are a good place to start. Especially when they’re pouring an array of hot toddies with brandy, rum or whiskey. And should your warming up lead to a celebratory mood, they’ve got Dom Perignon by the glass. Yes, it’s almost New Year’s.
Robert Redd Trunk Show at Wink
For two days, this preppy line of menswear is taking over the women’s Wink boutique. Tonight, grab a cocktail while you peruse knit shirts, polos and pocket squares. Because you’re better red than, well, you know.
Tacos Impala Open on H Street
Philadelphia Water Ice has wisely closed for the winter. In its place: a new takeout window to fuel your next cocktailing excursion along H Street. Think carne asada, carnitas and veggie tacos with your choice of salsa.
A Night of Ugly Sweaters at EatBar
Somewhere in the recesses of your closet, you’ve got a sweater. It might be mohair, it might be wool. But it’s certainly got a reindeer on it. Sport it proudly as you snack on popcorn, candy canes, spiked peppermint-patty cocoa and apple-infused bourbon. Totally worth it.
The Source’s Chinese-Style Family Meals
Amid all the ham, cookies and more ham, something more exotic could be in order. Like plate after plate of Sausage Fried Rice with Pork Belly, Lobster Springrolls and Glazed Pineapple Cake. Not that it should distract you from your ham-related obligations.
