Three Words: Co-Ed Touch Football

This summer, you have two advantages over the NFL: one, you’ll actually be playing football. And two, it’s co-ed football. This eight-on-eight touch football tourney goes all day on the Sidwell Friends fields. Fortunately, so does the happy hour at Town Tavern.

Taking registrations now for Aug 7, $300 per team, Sidwell Friends School, 3825 Wisconsin Ave NW, register here

A Giant Potato Skin Filled with Meat
SKINS GAME

A Giant Potato Skin Filled with Meat

After all those touchdown receptions, you’ll need to fuel the machine. Enter this giant crispy potato skin at Bourbon Steak’s bar, filled with braised oxtail, blue cheese, caramelized onion and horseradish cream. You can thank Idaho later.

Available now at the bar, Bourbon Steak, 2800 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 202-944-2026

Saturday
Lunch and 10 Rums at Ceiba
RUM FOR YOUR LIFE

Lunch and 10 Rums at Ceiba

You won’t be heading back to Barbados for a few months. And yet your palate keeps wandering back. Give in with this lunch, accompanied by a flight of 10 rums, from cachaças to aged beauties. A tiki bar can’t be far behind.

Jul 9, 1-3pm, $75, Ceiba, 701 14th St NW, call 202-408-0201 for reservations

Now Filling Your Growler: DC Brau
BRAU-BEATEN

Now Filling Your Growler: DC Brau

Good news: you can now find locally produced DC Brau beers all over town. Better news: you can now find them in your fridge, as they open up their tasting room for samplers and growler fills every Saturday. That milk was just taking up space anyway.

Saturdays, 1-4pm, DC Brau, 3178-B Bladensburg Rd NE, 202-621-8890
