Things to do for June 09, 2011
Soviet Bars, Parisian Cafés and Huge Burgers
The weekend holds its Twitter photos close to the vest.
MiG: A Bar Right Out of the Cold War
At this cozy, new second-floor Adams Morgan hideaway, you’ll sit amid Soviet-inspired murals while you sip on 12 beers, sangria and cocktails—most of which are $4 until the end of June. Consider it your own contribution to perestroika.
A BBQ-Topped Burger at BGR
What with your busy summer weekends, you never know when you’ll get your next chance to fuel up. So better make it count. Enter The Cue, a massive, prime-aged burger that gets topped with BBQ pulled pork and coleslaw. There’s also grilled corn on the cob. You know, for dessert.
Terasol Debuts Its Sidewalk Café
You’ll be on the giant Airbus A380 to Paris in no time. Until then, tide yourself over with French 75s and boeuf bourguignon on the new sidewalk tables at this café-cum-art gallery. Don’t forget to tip your beret when the mademoiselles walk by.
By now, you may have checked out the four levels of pop-up art in the VitaminWater Uncapped space. If not, here’s more incentive: a pop-up shop by Butler + Claypool and Hugh & Crye, who are showing their new summer shirts and ties. Keep your new shirt away from the graffiti artists.
Partying in an Undisclosed Location
You prefer when parties keep you on your toes. Like when you don’t know where they are. At this clandestine gathering, the arty Pink Line Project has teamed up with seafood guru Barton Seaver for a cocktail and dinner extravaganza. They’ll tell you it’s in a garden. And that’s all.
