The Weekender

Gelato Sandwiches, Unlimited Crawfish and Brigitte Bardot

The weekend would like a snow cone.

Thursday
Knocking 40% Off at Brooks Brothers
SALE-ING

Knocking 40% Off at Brooks Brothers

The haberdashers at Brooks Brothers know that your summer might yet call for a linen this, a seersucker that. Or, of course, a tie with little tiny snails on it. So they’re taking up to 40% off their entire stock in their semiannual sale. Just leave the wool alone.

Through Jul 3, Brooks Brothers, 3077 M St NW, 202-298-8797, and other area locations

30 Lost Photos of Brigitte Bardot
TAKE IT TO THE BRIG’

30 Lost Photos of Brigitte Bardot

Yes, there was actually life before Kate Upton. For instance, French icon Brigitte Bardot. The evidence: these 30 photographs (many never before seen) on display at the Sofitel for your perusal as you sip your Bardot-themed cocktail. If only Mlle. Bardot had the Internet.

Saturday
Bottomless Crawfish, Pig and Beer
BOILERMAKER

Bottomless Crawfish, Pig and Beer

Sometimes brunch is eggs Benedict and Bloody Marys. Other times—like Saturday at Pearl Dive—it’s endless pots of crawfish, roasted suckling pig, sides and Abita beer, all served family-style. Except the beer.

Behold: The Italian Ice Cream Sandwich
COLD CASE

Behold: The Italian Ice Cream Sandwich

You take no issue with the Good Humor man, but that doesn’t make him above competition and market forces, either. The kind of market forces that slather all manner of gelato between slices of fresh, eggy brioche bread at Pitango. Besides, you can never have enough dessert sandwich options.

Sat-Sun, $5, Pitango Gelato, 1451 P St NW, 202-332-8877 (Logan Circle location only)

Tuesday
Sushiko’s First-Ever Rare-Beer Dinner
SUSHI + SUDS

Sushiko’s First-Ever Rare-Beer Dinner

After six beers, you might get a hankering for sushi. And after six courses of sushi, you might want a beer. Solving the problem instantaneously: Sushiko’s first-ever sushi and rare-beer dinner, featuring several beers from Quebec. They’re big in Japan.

Jun 26, 7pm, $85, Sushiko, 5455 Wisconsin Ave, Chevy Chase, MD, reserve at 301-961-1644
