Things to do for June 02, 2011

The Weekender

Oysters, Giant Martinis and Anchorman

The weekend is positioning itself for 2012.

Thursday
Your Next Martini—All 48 Ounces of It
GROUP THING

Your Next Martini—All 48 Ounces of It

The problem with martinis is they’re so... individual. Not anymore, as Dirty Martini debuts the city’s largest cocktails—any of their specialty drinks are now available in a 48-ounce, group-friendly format. It’s the Big Gulp of martinis.

Friday
Twenty Food Trucks at a Beer Garden
TRUCKS. PARKED.

Twenty Food Trucks at a Beer Garden

Your days of chasing food trucks are over. At least on Fridays, when the Das Bullpen beer garden assembles 20 of them in a veritable shooting gallery of empanadas, BBQ and grilled cheese. We suggest you get strategic.

Jun 3, 11am-9pm, Truckeroo, Half St SE and M St SE

Saturday
Making Like a Southern Senator
FINE AND DANDY

Making Like a Southern Senator

With temperatures where they are, you should certainly be wearing seersucker. Especially if you’re riding a bike. For the second year, the folks behind the fall Tweed Ride are asking you to don your seer for this ride and vintage lawn party. Think croquet, badminton... and gin.

Jun 4, 2pm bike ride, location emailed to registrants, 3:30-7pm party, $10, Hillwood Estate, 4155 Linnean Ave NW, register here

Sunday
Oysters and Rare Beer at ChurchKey
HALF SHELL

Oysters and Rare Beer at ChurchKey

So you didn’t get tickets to the SAVOR beer fest this weekend. But there’s still hope. And it comes in the form of a three-hour extravaganza of West Coast oysters and 30 kegs from Rogue Ales, including a couple making their worldwide debut. You should be done just in time for happy hour.

Apatow Film Fest at EatBar
HERE COMES THE JUDD

Apatow Film Fest at EatBar

The problem with taking in Apatow films at the theater: they frown on you bringing cocktails. No more, as Arlington’s temple of sliders and wine flights gets things started with Step Brothers this weekend, followed by The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up and Anchorman. Yes, the bar smells of rich mahogany.

Sundays throughout June, 8pm, no cost, EatBar, 2761 Washington Blvd, Arlington, VA, 703-778-9951
