Things to do for October 27, 2011
Whiskey Bars, Champagne and Black Sabbath
The weekend is full of ideas.
As usual, we’ll show you the way to the whiskey bar. Unusually, that bar is selling shirts. All weekend, the Richmond-based boys from Ledbury are holding court in Georgetown and knocking 20% off merchandise. But show up tonight for a bar and a funk/soul band. It goes well with gingham.
A Power Breakfast at 16th and K
Your power breakfasting options downtown are still a bit thin, so listen up: here’s one named after the White House’s North Gate, and it serves stuff like savory apple sausage bread pudding, and cornbread and Virginia ham Benedict. They also do lunch, with dinner coming in a few weeks. No, you can’t get breakfast for dinner.
Sampling from 25 Spooky Food Trucks
Better make sure that Halloween pillowcase you’re carrying around is big enough, because you’ve got 25 food trucks to get through, along with live music all day, a costume contest at 11pm and the Das Bullpen beer garden open all day. Don’t attempt to pour beer into your pillowcase.
Crazy Champagnes at Marcel’s
So National Champagne Day... this exists. Fortunately, so does this over-the-top flight of three of Marcel’s best bubblies, each paired with a caviar-laden small bite. It’s the same thing they’ll do for National Caviar Day.
Like Ozzy’s Halloween Party
American Ice Co., your favorite gritty beer-and-bourbon bar, is turning things over to cocktail slinger extraordinaire Gina Chersevani. And a heavy-metal-obsessed DJ. Plus, there’ll be a costume contest at midnight, so we suggest you accessorize with a headless bat.
