Things to do for June 14, 2012

The Weekender

Punch Bowls, Vinyl Records and Stuff for Dad

The weekend will not entertain clown questions.

Thursday
Monthly Punch Bowls, Now at Lincoln
SUPER BOWL

Monthly Punch Bowls, Now at Lincoln

Nothing succeeds like excess. Especially when it’s a giant cocktail in a bowl for six. This month, Lincoln debuts a monthly rotating punch bowl. First up: Pimm’s No. 1, mixed with cucumber water and strawberry and ginger syrups. Note: it could also serve four. Or two.

Available now at Lincoln, 1110 Vermont Ave NW, 202-386-9200

Friday
A Private Martini Bar for Dad
MINI MART’

A Private Martini Bar for Dad

This weekend, your father could use a martini bar. All to himself. A limited package at the Dupont Circle Hotel gets Dad a penthouse-level room with his own mixology station, a shave at the Grooming Lounge, a cocktail and brunch the next day. Whether he brings Mom is his business.

Saturday
Sidewalk Chicken Picnics at PS 7’s
CHICKEN’ PICKIN’

Sidewalk Chicken Picnics at PS 7’s

Cold turkey: not so good. Cold chicken: very satisfying. So it is on PS 7’s patio, where servers are running out baskets of cold fried chicken, potato salad, deviled eggs and shaved ice. You can eat right there, or you can take your basket to go. We knew you were carrying that blanket for a reason.

Throughout summer, PS 7’s, 777 I St NW, 202-742-8550

Sunday
Bacon, Chocolate and Beer = Happy Dad
PATERNAL

Bacon, Chocolate and Beer = Happy Dad

First up: a three-course fatherly brunch featuring cheese soufflés, breakfast flatbreads and s’mores crème brûlée, washed down with beer Bellinis and wasabi Bloody Marys. Next up: breaking the news that you’re not flying him to the US Open next year, either.

A Giant Roomful of Vinyl
RECORD-KEEPER

A Giant Roomful of Vinyl

Here to bump up your record collection this weekend: 40 dealers, with everything from jazz to punk. If you need some inspiration, a different local DJ will start spinning each hour. Who knows, someone may even take that Weird Al Yankovic discography off your hands.
