The Weekender

Fire Pits, Blankets and Swedish Underwear

Okay, fine, the weekend will give you a high five.

Thursday
An Outdoor Bar with Blankets at Poste
POSTE-SCRIPT

An Outdoor Bar with Blankets at Poste

For its next trick, Poste would like you to have a drink in its courtyard. Tonight. Not to worry, they’re setting you up with heat lamps, fire pits, blankets built for two and an array of Prohibition-era cocktails, hot toddies and fondues. The forecast calls for melted cheese.

Southern Hospitality Opens Tonight
SOHO GRAND

Southern Hospitality Opens Tonight

Your weekends in Adams Morgan just got a little more... elevated. On the bones of Adams Mill Bar & Grill comes a Southern spot replete with brick and wood, bars downstairs and up, and a menu with steaks, crab cakes and crawfish pots. And probably no LSU fans for another few months.

Friday
Behold Town Hall’s New Digs
UP TOWN

Behold Town Hall’s New Digs

Relocation can be jarring. But like your moves, this one is an upgrade. Glover Park’s American tavern has repositioned itself into a two-story stronghold of seemingly endless bars, dining rooms, billiard lounges and outdoor patios. Good thing your ale and your lamb pie are portable.

Saturday
Presenting the White Briefs
UNDER WHERE?

Presenting the White Briefs

You knew we wouldn’t let you go without discussing your underwear. Specifically, its lack of... Swedishness. Here to help: the girl with the dragon tattoo. No, actually, a Swedish designer with a line of ultralight, ultrasmooth undies with shirts designed to stay tucked in and shorts designed to... well, never mind.

Sunday
Sunday Night Date Deals at 901
SUNDAY BEST

Sunday Night Date Deals at 901

The Sunday night date. They never see it coming. But you always need an extra arrow in your quiver. Enter this deal, which gets you a pair of shareable plates like tuna tempura and craft beer satay, along with a bottle of vino. They’ll throw in house beer for $2 in case things go well. Or if they don’t.
