PERK ALERT

Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off

We’ve hand-selected the finest shaving products Nickel has to offer—and we’re giving them to you for 44% off. Never before in history has such a collection of luxurious grooming material been assembled in one place. (Well, outside of Tom Selleck’s medicine cabinet...)

It’s Still 4/20 at the Black Squirrel
HEMP DAY

It’s Still 4/20 at the Black Squirrel

Another 4/20 has come and gone. If you’re already missing the camaraderie and love, the Squirrel is featuring hard-to-find beers from Georgia’s hippie-dippie SweetWater Brewing Company, including their legendary 420 Extra Pale Ale. Pair them with snacks like hemp pretzels and hemp brownies. The munchies are built in.

Available all week or while the kegs last, The Black Squirrel, 2427 18th St NW, 202-232-1011

Friday
Burlesque Tribute to Bettie Page
THE OTHER BETTIE

Burlesque Tribute to Bettie Page

Apologies to Ms. White, but in the “sexy octogenarians named Bettie” category, Bettie Page has her beat. On the occasion of what would be her 88th birthday, expect vaudeville, classic ’50s burlesque and a 1950s pinup fashion show. (Read: heavy on the leopard print.)

New Patio Meets Old Tree at Blue Duck
GIVING TREE

New Patio Meets Old Tree at Blue Duck

Finally, you can enjoy marrow bones and french toast donuts the way you like: outdoors on an ancient tree. Blue Duck Tavern has redone its outdoor terrace, complete with a 12-seat communal table carved from a tree that had been naturally preserved in New Zealand soil for 50,000 years. Carving your initials is discouraged.

Officially opens Apr 22, Blue Duck Tavern, Park Hyatt, 24th and M Streets, 202-419-6755

Saturday
A New Saturday Brunch on H Street
BRUNCH-ING

A New Saturday Brunch on H Street

Brunch comes a day early this weekend. And it comes in the form of Smith Commons’ Cointreau Noir French Toast, Fried Confit Chicken and Waffles and bottomless mimosas and Bloodys. Consider it your introductory course to the weekend.

Saturdays, 11am-3pm, bottomless drinks $14, Smith Commons, 1245 H St NE, 202-396-0038

Sunday
Kicking Kegs at Pizzeria Paradiso
FIRST AND LAST

Kicking Kegs at Pizzeria Paradiso

You always like to be there at the moment of change, for great historical epochs like... the changing of kegs. Every Sunday night, get half off the longest-running beer in their ever-rotating draft list. Then on Monday, get half off the newest one. Tuesday... you don’t even want to know about Tuesday.
