Easter: a time of lavish brunches, pastel blazers and, of course, caviar Easter eggs—and we’re hooking you up for 30% off the non-Eastering price. (We’re also filling your Easter basket with booze-infused candy.) Plus: up to 39% off your new spring shirts. (It’s BYO pants.)
Things to do for April 14, 2011
BYOB Jazz, Redneck Sushi and Baseball Boats
The weekend does all its own illustrations.
Getting to Nats Park by Boat
Starting this week, this river taxi is leaving from Georgetown an hour before game time, and will have you at the turnstiles in a mere 40 minutes. Just in time for you to remind Werth to keep his head still in the batter’s box.
Your New Locale for BYOB Jazz
Although this venue has moved from Logan to H Street, the drinks are still up to you. For a $3 corkage fee, you can bring in that bottle of 60-year-old scotch (they’ll supply the cups and ice) and sip while the blue notes waft over you.
Crawfish Boils Return to Acadiana
Your Friday afternoon agenda: schedule an out-of-office “meeting” for Acadiana’s back patio, where you’ll feast on crawfish and shrimp by the pound, as well as cocktails for $5 and buckets of Abita. Or, alternatively, ask them for buckets of shrimp and beer by the pound.
A Weekly Beer Education at Bourbon
You’re usually at this Glover Park bar to sample their encyclopedia-like bourbon list. Don’t worry: you can still do that on Saturday afternoons. But you can also get a crash course in beer with a different themed flight each week (this week, it’s wheat beers). There will not be a test.
Twinkies, Sushi and Cigars
Nothing improves a sparkling spring evening like... smoking. Enter this four-course dinner, featuring Redneck Sushi (with pulled pork) and a Tiramisu Twinkie. Each course will be paired with a bourbon, and you’ll get a stogie to puff throughout. Which is how you usually enjoy your Twinkies.
