Things to do for February 02, 2012

The Weekender

Hoagies, Duck Burgers and a Super Bowl Rooftop

The weekend watches for the commercials.

Thursday
2941 Returns... with Duck Burgers
REVERSE COMMUTE

2941 Returns... with Duck Burgers

After a New Year’s face-lift, this destination restaurant is back. Sit in the lakeside dining room and order fettuccine with lobster, cuttlefish and octopus carpaccio. Or sit at the bar and sample duck burgers with foie gras and Dark and Stormy desserts. Just like your favorite game—Duck, Duck, Rum.

Friday
Up to 70% Off at I. Gorman Jewelers
SALE-ING

Up to 70% Off at I. Gorman Jewelers

Reminder: there’s a certain Hallmark-driven holiday coming up. Yes, you still need a gift. Preferably one that shines. Enter this edgier-than-most downtown jeweler, whose winter sale happens to coincide with Valentine’s shopping season. Probably not a coincidence.

Saturday
Taylor’s Late-Night Breakfast
HOAGIE’S HEROES

Taylor’s Late-Night Breakfast

Your latest late-night snack is here: hoagie rolls piled with eggs and all manner of breakfast meats, cheese, even housemade beer cheese sauce. For dessert: breakfast risotto balls stuffed with sausage and bacon. They’ll even deliver. In case you’d like breakfast to follow you home.

Sunday
Watching the Super Bowl on a Rooftop
ROOF BALL

Watching the Super Bowl on a Rooftop

Unlike the fans in Indy this weekend, you’ll be enjoying the game outdoors, as El Centro D.F. adorns its rooftop with a big TV, surround sound, heat lamps and all-night specials of $4 margaritas, beer and wine. First one to say “Gronkowski” buys the first round.

Next Sunday
An Indian, BYOB Brunch
THAT’S SO STREET

An Indian, BYOB Brunch

You may have heard of Hush Supper Club, which serves up courses of Indian at an undisclosed house in NW DC. Starting next weekend, the hostess is kicking off a three-hour brunch of Indian street food, complete with chutney tastings and bottomless masala chai. BYOC (champagne) for mimosas.
