Things to do for January 26, 2012

The Weekender

4am Burgers, Jelly Donuts and January Bikinis

The weekend will see you now.

Thursday
Saturday
Jelly Donuts and Barrel-Aged Syrup
GREY ANATOMY

Jelly Donuts and Barrel-Aged Syrup

The DC Grey Market is back. Which means two things: 1) an afternoon of sampling and taking home stuff like Bacon, Egg and Hash Brown Pie, barrel-aged maple syrup and homemade jelly donuts; and 2) DC bureaucrats will not be seen (except maybe undercover).

Hitting Golf Balls in Swimsuits
COLD IRONS

Hitting Golf Balls in Swimsuits

The forecast for Saturday evening: about 45 degrees. Perfect for hitting a few range balls. In a swimsuit. With a tiki drink at the ready. You’ll help raise a little dough for charity, but you’ll be a little cold doing it, because beachwear is required. So bring a camera.

Jan 28, 5-8pm, $15, TopGolf, 6625 S Van Dorn St, Alexandria, VA, 703-924-2600

Sunday
DC Meat Week Returns
Q SCHOOL

DC Meat Week Returns

It’s almost Super Bowl week. Which also means it’s almost Meat Week. Yup, the annual nightly festival of BBQ is back, where you and other carnivores hop from ’cue joint to ’cue joint. The highlights: a benefit concert at Hill Country and a Saturday gathering in a Safeway parking lot.

Monday
Local Beer + Local Whiskey = ...
BARREL HOUSE

Local Beer + Local Whiskey = ...

Your beer. It’s good. Yet it’s still missing something. Yes, a hint of whiskey. No more, as DC Brau releases the first keg of its Penn Quarter Porter, aged in whiskey barrels from the nearby Catoctin Creek distillery. Everything’s better aged in whiskey barrels. Even whiskey.

Jan 30, 6:30pm, Boundary Stone, 116 Rhode Island Ave NW, 202-621-6635

Tuesday
18 Hours of Burgers on 14th Street
BIG ORANGE

18 Hours of Burgers on 14th Street

You’ve closed down the bar. And the after-hours bar. Good thing you can still get a burger with Jamaican habanero peppers. Black & Orange is expanding to 14th—and those doors will stay open from 11am to 5am every day. Cheeseburgers: the cornerstone of any nutritious breakfast.
