Things to do for December 15, 2011

The Weekender

Football on a Giant Screen and Gratis Cans of Beer

The weekend controls its own destiny.

Thursday
“Shop for Her” Night in Georgetown
SALE-ING

“Shop for Her” Night in Georgetown

Ten days left. The pressure grows. Fortunately, Georgetown shops are rolling out the red carpet, with complimentary personal shopping, bourbon, desserts and gratis gift wrap. They had you at bourbon.

Limited-Edition Ties at Alton Lane
OLD ST. NECK

Limited-Edition Ties at Alton Lane

Your cotton-to-wool transformation is nearly complete. The missing piece: a tie or two. Enter Alton Lane, with six limited-edition tartan plaid ties made from Scottish wool. Only 15 of each style were made, so don’t make it a resolution.

Friday
Steak Sandwiches and Crab Cakes to Go
CAR HOP

Steak Sandwiches and Crab Cakes to Go

Since your office budget cuts did away with the chef in the break room, lunch has gone downhill. Turn things around with to-go service at J&G Steakhouse—flank steak sandwiches, crab cakes and housemade sodas. They’ve even got a dedicated parking spot for pickup. So the intern doesn’t get a ticket.

Saturday
Bowl Games on a Giant Screen
50-FOOT BALL

Bowl Games on a Giant Screen

Your biggest problem with postseason football: the players are too small. No more, as the Fillmore plans to throw open its doors on non-show nights this winter with a 50-foot screen. And Brent Musburger like you’ve never heard him.

Starts Dec 17, 5pm-close, no cover, The Fillmore, 8656 Colesville Rd, Silver Spring, 301-960-9999

Monday
Give a Can, Get a Can at Paradiso
CAN-CAN

Give a Can, Get a Can at Paradiso

By now, you’re in the giving and receiving mood. So is Pizzeria Paradiso, which is throwing up to three gratis cans of beer your way in exchange for you bringing in a donation of canned goods to Martha’s Table. You’ll never find a better deal than creamed corn for beer.

Dec 19, 11:30am-11pm, Pizzeria Paradiso, 2003 P St NW, 202-223-1245, and other locations
