Summer Sale at Lost Boys

Your summer has a few strong weeks in it yet, so take advantage as Lost Boys knocks 20%-plus off their whole warm-weather stock. Think swim trunks from Steven Alan, shirts from Rogan and Gilded Age, and jackets and pants from Theory. Which beats just a hypothesis of pants.

Begins Aug 12, Lost Boys, 1033 31st St NW, 202-333-0093

A Breakfast Burger at BGR
BURGER-FAST

A Breakfast Burger at BGR

On your weekends, breakfast bleeds right into dinner. So you’ll want to know about this here burger, topped with the equivalent of a bacon, egg and cheese sandwich. It’s called the Triple D, because, you know, it’s top-heavy.

Available in August, BGR The Burger Joint, 1514 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-299-1071, and other area locations

English Soccer Kicks Off at Lucky Bar

Not that you need an excuse to go to a bar at 9:30am, but Lucky Bar will give you one nonetheless: opening day of the English Premier League season. They’ll have a half-dozen games on TV in the morning, and a classic English breakfast. Yes, with beans.

Aug 13, 9:30am, Lucky Bar, 1221 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-331-3733

Sunday
Hill Country Launches Delivery Service
BBQ TO GO

Hill Country Launches Delivery Service

So the neighbors (and the fire department) have finally objected to the smoker you constructed in your shower. Not to worry: Penn Quarter’s new Texas roadhouse now delivers all manner of meats to your doorstep. The bourbon’s on you this time.

Next Saturday
Sign Up for the Zombie Apocalypse
GEORGE ROMERO

Sign Up for the Zombie Apocalypse

Surviving Alexandria usually means dodging tourists and avoiding old women driving Jaguars. This time, it involves zombies. You and 450 competitors will attempt to cross Alexandria without being tagged by the undead, lest you turn from hunted to hunter. In your case, zombies carry flasks.
