Things to do for May 19, 2011

The Weekender

Kayaks, Ice Cream and Dumbbell-Sized Burritos

The weekend only tunes in for the fourth quarter.

Thursday
The Ice Cream Club Returns
SCREAM

The Ice Cream Club Returns

The good folks at Seasonal Pantry (they of sausage and soup clubs) have returned to their roots. Yes, the ice cream club is back. Each month’s membership gets you eight pints’ worth, in flavors like Cruller-Doughnut and Turkish Coffee/Cardamom. Which probably go great together.

Local Beer Night at Smith Commons
UNI-BRAU

Local Beer Night at Smith Commons

You may not have known it, but you’re in the middle of American Craft Beer Week (Hallmark hasn’t gotten in on the act yet). For their part, Smith Commons is pouring DC Brau’s Public Ale and the new Penn Quarter Porter, and there’s the potential for a never-before-released keg.

May 19, 7-10pm, $5 beers, Smith Commons, 1245 H St NE, 202-396-0038

Friday
Have Oar, Will Travel
RIVER DRIVER

Have Oar, Will Travel

Jack’s Boathouse is open yet again, which means it’s time to reach for a stand-up paddleboard and set out on the waters of Georgetown. Or better yet, gather a group of like-minded paddlers and assemble an armada of two-man vessels. Just be wary of any Sir Francis Drakes in your midst.

Saturday
Four-Pound Burritos at Pica Taco
CALLING KOBAYASHI

Four-Pound Burritos at Pica Taco

The parameters for your Saturday afternoon are as follows: one four-pound burrito. Forty-five minutes on the clock. A T-shirt and eternal glory to collect when all is said and done. Nap.

May 21, noon-5pm, Pica Taco, 1406 Florida Ave NW, 202-518-6820, sign up via email or in person

Sunday
Chefs Invade the 9:30 Club
SOUND BITES

Chefs Invade the 9:30 Club

You’ve been waiting for the event that would bring Dangerously Delicious Pies and the Pietasters together. It’s here in the form of Sound Bites, a benefit for DC Central Kitchen that combines five DC bands with 25 restaurants and five food trucks. Don’t be surprised if someone plays the spoons.
