The Weekender

Cupcake Cocktails, 24 Beers and Henry Rollins

The weekend also thinks Tony Romo is funny.

Thursday
Liquor-Soaked Cupcakes at PS 7’s
ACE OF CAKES

Liquor-Soaked Cupcakes at PS 7’s

PS 7’s has long been one of your go-tos for Edison-level cocktail creations. Now, they’re applying the same R&D to cupcakes soaked in booze. That means apple spice cake dipped in scotch or toffee pear cake dunked in rum. It’s better than the lightbulb.

Available now, PS 7’s, 777 I St NW, 202-742-8550

$6 Burgers, 24 Beers and Shaketails
ALL BTS ARE OFF

$6 Burgers, 24 Beers and Shaketails

Well, you’ll be pleased to know that the owners of the new District Commons have doubled down with a burger joint under the same roof. Think homemade buns, house-ground beef, two dozen beers on tap and adult shakes like the Evil Empire (vodka, coffee liqueur, vanilla ice cream). Tear down this wall.

Friday
A Month of Pumpkin Lollipops at Lincoln
GOOD GOURD, MAN

A Month of Pumpkin Lollipops at Lincoln

Nothing against jack-o’-lanterns, but Lincoln is putting pumpkins toward better uses. Like Bacon-Wrapped Pumpkin Lollipops, Pumpkin Bread Pudding and—the coup de grâce—Harvest Punch Bowls with pumpkin spice moonshine. No, it doesn’t come in a pumpkin.

Available throughout October, Lincoln, 1110 Vermont Ave NW, 202-386-9200

Henry Rollins Talks Photos at Nat Geo
OH, HENRY

Henry Rollins Talks Photos at Nat Geo

Henry Rollins is one of those people, like Bill Clinton, who just needs a microphone. Enter National Geographic, which is going to give him one for the evening as he shows off and discusses his photography exploits. No, you can’t show him your Black Flag tattoo.

Oct 7, 7:30pm, $40, Grosvenor Auditorium at National Geographic, 1145 17th St NW, tickets here

Saturday
Curling, Your Next Great Sport
STONE-COLD

Curling, Your Next Great Sport

You’ve got a date this weekend. With a sheet of ice and a broom. Yes, it’s curling season. Get yourself started at a training session with the Potomac Curling Club, where they’ll teach you the basics of delivering a stone and sweeping, and even let you play a few ends. Yes, those are curling terms.

Oct 8, noon-3pm; Oct 9, 1-4pm; $35, National Capital Curling Center, 13810 Old Gunpowder Rd, Laurel, MD, register here
