This week, we’re handing you the keys to a Ferrari—and four other supercars—for a glorious day of racing. Plus, we’re airmailing you a bevy of holiday-appropriate meats from Robinson’s Prime Reserve for 25% off. And then helping you cook those meats to perfection with the ingenious iGrill. (We’ll explain.)
Things to do for December 15, 2011
Football on a Giant Screen and Gratis Cans of Beer
The weekend controls its own destiny.
“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
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.
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.
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.
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.
