The Weekender

Punch Bowls, Beer Buckets and Other Weekend Necessities

The weekend is going into the ice business.

Friday
Behold the Sushi Deli
FISH STORY

Behold the Sushi Deli

You like a little DIY element in your food, even your maki rolls. Enter this new spot by the man behind Kaz Sushi Bistro, where you go down the line, picking your fish, your veggies and your sauces, as they roll it up in front of you. Consider it the sushi version of Chipotle.

Sunday
Punch Bowl Brunches at Lincoln
BOWLING

Punch Bowl Brunches at Lincoln

So the giant snowman in your front yard finally met its demise. You’ll need something to dull the pain. Like 64-ounce brunchy punch bowls full of Bloody Marys and mimosas at Lincoln. Also good anytime you’re in the mood for a cocktail that requires a ladle.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, $42, Lincoln, 1110 Vermont Ave NW, 202-386-9200

Shirts + Cocktails + Music at a Gallery
SHIRTING THE ISSUE

Shirts + Cocktails + Music at a Gallery

On a weekend like this, you may need a fresh shirt when you arrive at your cocktail party du jour. Fortunately, amid the live music and drinks at this gallery, you’ll find plenty of sharp shirts from Read’s Clothing Project and vintage duds from Butler + Claypool. Word of warning: it’s BYO Gatorade.

Jul 24, 1-7pm, Lamont Bishop Gallery, 1314 9th St NW, more info here

Monday
Golf and a Bucket of Beer at H St CC
FORE PLAY

Golf and a Bucket of Beer at H St CC

Bucket and putter. Sure, it sounds like the nicknames of a couple guys from Alabama. But it’s also what you’ll get on Mondays at the H Street Country Club, when 16 bucks gets you a bucket of Coronas and a round of mini-golf for two.

Beer vs. Wine Battle at Birch & Barley
PICK YOUR POISON

Beer vs. Wine Battle at Birch & Barley

The age-old question: wine or beer? The age-old answer: both. On Monday, chefs and sommeliers from Birch & Barley and Firefly will roll out five courses, each paired with a glass of beer and a glass of wine. It’s the classy way to double-fist.
