We’re getting you access to a small cache of VIP tickets to the soon-to-be-epic Sweetlife Festival happening in late April, here in DC. (The Shins and Kid Cudi would want this.) Plus, we’re hooking you up with spectacular handcrafted leather iPad cases and sending you exclusive steaks from Food Network’s Meat Men.
Things to do for April 19, 2012
Five New Brunch Options in Town
The weekend will take an egg on that.
Cracklins and Bacon at Mintwood Place
If your Friday night in Adams Morgan is rough, you can now return to the scene of the crime at this new French gastropub. On your plate: Bacon & Eggs made of pork cracklins and pickled eggs and a Hangover Special that involves beef patties, bacon and ranch dressing. A favorite of every French chef.
Black is white, down is up, and rooftops and bottle service are no longer just nocturnal endeavors. Lost Society’s huge rooftop is now hosting a reservations-only weekend brunch party with DJs, bottomless mimosas and bottle service. No, the DJ never takes his sunglasses off.
Bottomless Cocktails at the Federalist
Bourbon milk punch. The bottomless kind. We probably don’t need to go on, but just in case, the new colonial-themed dining room is adding chicken confit omelets, Pennsylvania Dutch pancakes and the Settler’s Breakfast (flat iron steak and eggs) to the mix. Beware of whiskey rebellions.
Pork Confit and Eggs at Boundary Road
The Obamas went trawling for campaign cash here a few weeks ago. You’ll settle for a peanut-butter-and-banana Monte Cristo or maybe the Gentleman Will Take a Chance, a mashup of pork confit, peppers, onions, potatoes and egg. Of course, your Super PAC is a little light these days.
Spring Rolls and Donuts at Beau Thai
Beau Thai serves its new Sunday brunch only in the afternoon. And in those precious hours between Meet the Press and 60 Minutes, it’s time to get exotic. Like banana and cinnamon spring rolls, Thai donuts and ground-pork omelets. And naturally, some housemade lemongrass limoncello. Toast Mike Wallace with it.
