Things to do for April 14, 2011

The Weekender

BYOB Jazz, Redneck Sushi and Baseball Boats

The weekend does all its own illustrations.

Thursday
Getting to Nats Park by Boat
THE OLD BALL BOAT

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
KIND OF BLUE

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.

Jam sessions Wed-Thu, 8pm, $8; performances Fri-Sat, 9/11pm, $20; HR-57, 816 H St NE

Friday
Crawfish Boils Return to Acadiana
BRING TO BOIL

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.

Every Friday, 3:30-6:30pm, Acadiana, 901 New York Ave NW, 202-408-8848

Saturday
A Weekly Beer Education at Bourbon
TAKING FLIGHT

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.

Saturdays through May 28, 11:30am-5pm, Bourbon, 2348 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-625-7770

Wednesday
Twinkies, Sushi and Cigars
SPRING SMOKE

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.
