Things to do for May 12, 2011

The Weekender

Gratis Pizza, Taco Experiments and Roller Derby

The weekend is serious about its hammock.

Thursday
Grab-and-Go Sandwiches at Estadio
SIESTA SANDWICHES

Grab-and-Go Sandwiches at Estadio

You’ve come to rely on Estadio for your weekly fix of rare ham and scotch slushies. Now you can turn your attention to Spain even earlier in the day. During their new lunch service, you can get a rotating array of bocadillo sandwiches (think lamb meatballs, grilled vegetables) at the bar.

Tue-Fri, 11:30am-2pm, $10, Estadio, 1520 14th St NW, 202-319-1404

Poptails on the Patio at Saint-Ex
CYLINDRICAL

Poptails on the Patio at Saint-Ex

We know what you’re thinking. And we have an answer. No, it isn’t too early to have cocktails in popsicle form. Especially when they come in flavors like Champagne-Elderflower-Lemon. A glass is included, just in case you’re not in a hurry.

Saturday
A Roller Derby Title Bout
THE OTHER DERBY

A Roller Derby Title Bout

You’re not often one to miss roller derby. But you’re never one to miss high-stakes roller derby. Like when the DC DemonCats take on Scare Force One for all the marbles in the final match of this rough-and-tumble season. If you’re lucky, maybe you take home a piece of fishnet.

May 14, doors at 3pm, match at 4pm, $12, DC Armory, 2001 E Capitol St SE, tickets here

Sunday
Experimenting with Tacos
AMATEUR HOUR

Experimenting with Tacos

You’re quite certain that the best experiments are taco-related experiments. So make a rare Sunday afternoon appearance at the Rock & Roll Hotel, where amateur chefs will roll out all manner of taco concoctions, from savory to sweet. Because you’ve always wondered what fluffernutter tacos taste like.

Monday
Gratis Pizza in Bethesda
MARCO

Gratis Pizza in Bethesda

This new Neapolitan pizzeria takes its craft seriously: flour and tomatoes imported from Italy and a custom-made, wood-burning brick oven that burns at 900 degrees. Show up on Monday and get a pie (like the Bianca: mozzarella, baby arugula) on the house. For the rest of May, take half off.
