Things to do for May 10, 2012

The Weekender

Dirty Movies, Gratis Wine and All-Day Breakfast

The weekend would like to welcome you to the big leagues.

Thursday
Friday
Risqué Films and Even Risqué-r Dancing
SINEMA SHOW

Risqué Films and Even Risqué-r Dancing

On the screen: some of the most provocative and titillating films from the archives of the DC Shorts festival. On stage in between the films: an array of burlesque and vaudeville performers who may mess with fire, play the trumpet and dance with hoops. Oh, and take their clothes off.

Saturday
$1 Antipasti at A.M. Wine Shoppe
SMALL BITES

$1 Antipasti at A.M. Wine Shoppe

Sometime on Saturday afternoon, you’ll want a breadstick wrapped in prosciutto. All the better if you get it with gratis wine. Now every Saturday, A.M.’s communal tastings are paired with dollar antipasti like chicken-liver mousse and anchovies. They go down easier with the wine.

Saturdays starting May 12, antipasti 1pm, tastings 2-4pm, A.M. Wine Shoppe, 2122 18th St NW, 202-506-2248

Sunday
Breakfast All Day at Florida Ave Grill
BIG BERTHA

Breakfast All Day at Florida Ave Grill

The only thing better than weekend breakfast: weekend breakfast at dinner hours. So classic greasy spoon Florida Avenue Grill is now slinging eggs all day. We recommend the Miss Bertha’s Breakfast Special, a one-of-everything breakfast extravaganza. Because you may have skipped breakfast and lunch.

Wednesday
Backyard Burgers and Half-Price Beers
DOUBLE HELIX

Backyard Burgers and Half-Price Beers

Nothing against happy hours, but the food you get tends to be... diminutive. Enter Helix Lounge’s new burger happy hour on their patio, where $7 gets you a wood-fired burger and chips. They’ll throw in a can of DC Brau for half price. You’ll feel like a real American by the time you’re done.

Wednesdays through Labor Day, 5-7pm, Helix Lounge, 1430 Rhode Island Ave NW, 202-462-9001

Get Ready for Sex, Anger and Dinner
