Things to do for January 20, 2011

The Weekender

Wild Game, Haggis and Other Weekend Treats

The weekend doesn’t like riding on the passenger side.

Thursday
A Gallon of Homemade Soup a Month
SOUP FOR YOU

A Gallon of Homemade Soup a Month

You may remember the guys from Seasonal Pantry from their ice cream club and sausage club gone by. Well, they’re back, and this time they’re keeping you warm with a quart of homemade soup per week. Think potato leek, chicken noodle and taco soup. Which is awfully hard to keep rolled up in a tortilla.

Eating Beasts of the Wilderness
GAME THEORY

Eating Beasts of the Wilderness

You were just thinking the other day: you need more wild game in your life. For instance, this game-focused dinner next Sunday, resplendent with bison jerky, deviled hare, whole-roasted boar and quail cooked in a jar. It’s all paired with rare, small-production Burgundies. In glasses, not jars.

Now reserving for Jan 30, 5-7:30pm, $85, Eola, 2020 P St NW, reserve at 202-466-4441

Saturday
Brunch in a Music Club
GOOD MORNING

Brunch in a Music Club

Iota has long been one of your go-to’s for indie music acts. Now it’s your go-to for morning coffee, growler fills from their 12 taps and weekend brunch with a Bloody Mary bar. Now if you can just kill those hours in between the encore and brunch...

Sat-Sun, 9am-3pm, Iota, 2832 Wilson Blvd, Arlington, VA, 703-522-8340, see the menu

36 Beers and a Boat
ALL WET

36 Beers and a Boat

The best part about being a 19th-century British sailor: the rations. So too on this DC School of Beer cruise on the Potomac. In addition to light snacks, you’ll get to work your way through 36 beers, with experts on hand to tell you all about them. No, there aren’t bunks below deck.

Jan 22, 7:30-10pm, $58, Washington Marina, 1300 Maine Ave SW, tickets here

Tuesday
Againn’s Ode to Haggis
IT BURNS

Againn’s Ode to Haggis

Tuesday is Scottish poet Robert Burns’s birthday. Which means two things: 1) only five shopping days left, and 2) this dinner, involving a bagpiper, three courses (including haggis) and scotch pairings. Go ahead, wear your kilt.

Jan 25, 6:30pm, $45, Againn, 1099 New York Ave NW, 202-639-9830
