Things to do for September 02, 2011

The Weekender

The Beatles, Jammy Jams and a Soul Food Truck

The weekend is in a growth spurt.

Friday
You Are the Walrus
COME TOGETHER

You Are the Walrus

Eight days a week? Not so much. But four days a weekend? Sure, when it comes to this Beatles bacchanalia on the water at National Harbor. Think Fab Four cover bands like the Repeatles and the Norwegian Beatles. And probably a seminar or two on Ringo-ology.

Your Month of Sherry Starts... Now
SHERRY BABY

Your Month of Sherry Starts... Now

Sherry: immortalized by Frankie Valli, Steve Perry... and your September. All month, Estadio is giving Spain’s fortified wine a hero’s welcome, with rotating flights, and cocktails like the Mono Medio with dry sherry, gin, grapefruit and honey. Good for the throat when you’re singing about sherry.

Throughout September, Estadio, 1520 14th St NW, 202-319-1404

Saturday
Burning Sour Patch Kids in Effigy
BURN, BABY, BURN

Burning Sour Patch Kids in Effigy

You appreciate a swan song. Especially when it involves Sour Patch Kids liqueur. For one night, the creator of the Burning Man Cocktail returns to Sova to fan the flames with a few more Kids. At 1am, a bonfire will send any remaining to Sour Patch Kids nirvana. Not a bad place, we hear.

Sep 3, 9pm-1am, Sova, 1359 H St NE, 202-397-3080

Sunday
Wear Your PJs to Brunch
JAMMY JAMS

Wear Your PJs to Brunch

Like any other Sunday, this week you’ll be nibbling french toast, bacon and omelets in your PJs. Only this time, you’ll be at a restaurant. Old Town’s new gastro-warehouse is rolling out its brunch. They’ll be in their jammies, and they’ll knock 10% off your bill if you’re in yours.

Monday
Fish Sandwiches and Collards on a Truck
SOUL KITCHEN

Fish Sandwiches and Collards on a Truck

You’re cool enough. But perhaps you could use a bit more soul. Or at least soul food. Enter this new truck by the folks at Langston Bar & Grille, now hawking jerk wings, collards and fish sandwiches. The Aretha soundtrack is up to you.
