Your Valentine’s Day toolbox is now well stocked with supplies from the love experts at Jimmyjane. We’re also making sure you have at least twice the usual amount of lingerie on hand for the occasion and a two-hour private Polaroid session where someone can... display it.
Things to do for February 02, 2012
Hoagies, Duck Burgers and a Super Bowl Rooftop
The weekend watches for the commercials.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
