Things to do for September 29, 2011
Pool Parties, Shotguns and Free Meatballs
The weekend deserves its own motorcade.
Ray’s to the Third Opens in Clarendon
You know you’ll find tons of good steaks and dirt-cheap wine here. What you might not expect from Michael Landrum’s new spot: fried chicken, Cajun catfish and an array of spiked milkshakes, like the Kentucky Sailor (caramel shake, bourbon, sea salt). Just like those seafarers in Lexington drink.
A Last-Gasp Summer Pool Party
To kick off the Corcoran’s latest exhibit, 30 Americans, the museum is taking over the pool of the Capitol Skyline with BBQ, DJs and cocktails. You love it when the water’s warmer than the air.
Fishing, Shooting from the Same Boat
Sure, this charter captain is happy to take you out on the Chesapeake for some fall striper fishing or crabbing. But book now for November and you can bring... a shotgun. You’ll be hunting for sea ducks in the morning and fishing in the afternoon. No camouflage necessary.
A Weekend of Pig Roasts at the Heights
Speaking of last gasps: your alfresco pig roasting days in 2011 may be numbered. Better take advantage while you can. Stop here for pulled-pork sandwiches, corn bread, apple streusel and beer from Chocolate City on the patio. And wear shorts.
Gratis Happy Hour Bites at Casa Nonna
Happy hour is its own reward. But it would be nice if it came with an actual reward. Like a half-dozen complimentary bar snacks every day, like risotto balls and meatballs. Show up on Tuesday for gratis Peronis from 5 to 6pm and $3 Peronis after 6pm. Which do not come in ball form.
