Things to do for February 23, 2012
Tongue Tacos, Burlesque Tryouts and Bottomless Drinks
The weekend never relies on CGI.
Your Tacos, Now with More Exotic Meats
For the next couple weeks, Rosa Mexicano is going all exotic on you: think veal tongue tacos, pork cheek tamales and lamb neck enchiladas. And they’re selling the meats to go by the pound. That whining sound you hear is coming from your grill.
Coal-Fired Pizza Comes to Bethesda
The latest entrant in your quest for the perfect pie: Haven, serving coal-fired Neapolitan pizza from a pair of 50-ton ovens. Have a seat at the bar, made from timber from the Maker’s Mark distillery, and order up a white clam pie, a white spinach and mushroom, or other less-white options.
Unlimited Cocktails at P.J. Clarke’s
P.J. Clarke’s is turning itself into a hangover-friendly oasis on the weekends, as they start brunch service with stuff like Irish Oven Eggs and cheesy buttered grits. Plus, for $18.84, quaff unlimited Bellinis, Bloody Marys, Kir Royals and mimosas all afternoon. Hopefully not by yourself.
Drinking Your Way Through the Oscars
So you didn’t get nominated this time. (It was an off year.) No problem: the clandestine Quill bar at the Jefferson hotel is setting up TVs and stirring cocktails inspired by the nominated films. Like the Prohibition-era Bee’s Knees, in honor of The Artist. It will render you speechless.
Judging DC’s Next Burlesque Star
You’ve spent years appreciating the art form. And now, it’s all come down to this: burlesque tryouts at the Red Palace, in which you select the best in show. The winners move on to subsequent rounds in an effort to star in an upcoming show. Don’t forget your “10” sign.
