This week, we’re sending you freshly baked cookies spiked with whiskey, tequila and/or Guinness. Plus, we’re getting you and a guest out of Dodge with an amenity-laden stay at the extravagant waterfront retreat Forty 1° North in Newport, RI. (Stock up on half-price Seize sur Vingt shirts for the trip.)
Things to do for September 08, 2011
A Luxury Bus to Merriweather and Other Weekend Essentials
The weekend needs an extra towel.
Fashion’s Night Out, Guy-Style
You might have thought that tonight’s Fashion’s Night Out was more of a woman’s event. It is. But not so fast: local designer Wolf vs Goat is outfitting you with custom suits and shirts all night, while Lost Boys has shoe shines and scotch tastings. Don’t forget your pocket square.
Dollar Slices at Pete’s Apizza
We’re in a deflationary environment. At least when it comes to pizza. Sign up for Pete’s email list and get dollar slices, any kind, all afternoon, all month. Then figure out what to do with your evening.
Oxfords and Billiards on M Street
The reason you’re so short on bow ties and blue blazers: you can’t play billiards while buying them. No longer. At the massive new Brooks Brothers space, you’ll find the usual complement of oxfords, a downstairs pool table and their new collegiate stuff, much of it emblazoned with the Georgetown logo.
Brunch Comes to H Street Country Club
Your brunching options on H Street are multiplying. And now they include huevos rancheros, skee-ball and a concoction known as chilaquiles—eggs, tomatillo sauce, corn chips, cheese and beans. Bring your appetite. And your putter.
Riding in Luxury to Merriweather
Before enrolling in the school of rock, you’ll need to get on the bus. Like this one, which starts picking up at Union Station this Sunday for Merriweather shows. Think TVs, DVD players, a PA system—and a built-in place after the show to maintain that headspace that Wilco put you in.
