Things to do for January 05, 2012
Truffles, 3am Hoagies and Other Weekend Needs
The weekend always gives the points.
Red Palace Reveals Its Menu
The new kitchen at Red Palace is turning out about what you’d expect from the vaudeville-themed spot: an array of seven burgers, including a Spam-American-cheese-egg number and the Burporken, an unholy marriage of burger, pulled pork and grilled chicken. Save a piece for the sword-swallower.
Late-Night Hoagies on 14th
You could do a lot worse at 3am than a garlicky Philly hoagie piled with peppers and sharp provolone. Which Taylor Gourmet is now serving at 14th and U. They’ll stay open until 3:30am on weekends, as well as deliver as far as Dupont and Columbia Heights. For when you plan your hoagie in advance.
An Orgy of White Truffles at Fiola
Your destination Italian spot in Penn Quarter just got its hands on a treasure trove of late-season white truffles and is shaving them on risotto, tagliatelle and sunny-side-up eggs. The bonus: they’re selling them at cost. Which means you should spring for double truffles.
It’s Back: Elvis’s Birthday Fight Club
Elvis: just a little bit ridiculous. As is this show, in which The King himself emcees an array of hip-shaking burlesque acts and mock fights. They’ll provide the cocktails. But you may want to bring your own peanut butter and banana sandwich.
You prefer a closer connection to your liquor. Like being present at the creation. So you’ll want to RSVP for these bottling sessions—gin next Friday, rye on Sunday—where they’ll serve you lunch, let you sign the bottles that you... er, bottle, and send you home with some of your handiwork.
