Things to do for July 07, 2011
Gelato, Beer and Co-Ed Football
The weekend is still seeing stars.
Pitango Gelato Open on Capitol Hill
Like the actual universe, the gelato universe continues to expand. This time, the all-natural local shop is bringing to Capitol Hill flavors like Spicy Chocolate, Bourbon Vanilla and Sicilian Almond. It can’t be refused.
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.
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.
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.
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.
