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
New Burgers, Breakfast Pizza and S’mores
The weekend loves lamp.
A Beer-Soaked Burger Emporium Opens
So this new burger spot just soft-opened very quietly yesterday in Morningside. It’s called Burger Tap. You’ll only find four burgers (cheese, Southwestern, sesame and truffle) and a grilled cheese on the menu. Which is fine, because they also have 25 beers on tap to even things out. Fair is fair.
If you happen to drop by Bill Hallman in Virginia Highland tonight, things may look a bit different. It could be the DJs. Or maybe it’s the open bar and all the live music over in the corner. Don’t worry, though—it’s just a little holiday party they’re throwing you. Seriously, don’t worry.
Bad Dog Puts On a S’mores Clinic
Seeing as it’s s’mores season right now, you should probably be eating s’mores right now. Our humble suggestion: the ones at Bad Dog. The reasons why: homemade graham crackers infused with blackstrap molasses and morita peppers, chocolate from Cacao, toasted marshmallows from Cacao, all topped with hickory-smoked sea salt. Go.
No. 246, Now Morning-After Friendly
By now, you’ve ushered a date or two into No. 246. There was wine. There were meatballs. But guess what... now you can do the same thing for brunch. Except maybe substitute that wine for a mimosa and those meatballs for breakfast pizza and pan-fried brioche. And that date for another time.
Mondays Just Got Testosterone-y
You don’t need anyone intentionally trying to appeal to your masculine side. It’s just unnecessary. But if someplace, say D.B.A., were to offer you $1 pints, $4 pitchers, fried bacon-wrapped hot dogs with a side of rib tips and renaissance-faire-esque smoked turkey legs on Monday nights... you may be inclined to reconsider. Very inclined.
