Things to do for July 19, 2012

The Weekender

Ron Burgundy, Rum Bars and Late-Night Eats

The weekend has no ulterior motives.

Thursday
A Pizza Assembly Line on H
PARLOR GAMES

A Pizza Assembly Line on H

Amid white tiles and vintage photos of H Street, you’ll customize your pie from myriad sauce, dough and topping options. In 90 seconds, your pie will travel through a conveyor oven, giving you just enough time to pick one of the canned microbeers. Or, you know, a salad.

A Pool Party with Ron Burgundy Tonight
STAYING CLASSY

A Pool Party with Ron Burgundy Tonight

Here’s a pool you can jump in tonight. While watching Anchorman. Get there early for Burgundy-centric trivia and costume contests (warning: polyester doesn’t breathe). Admission includes a drink ticket, which you’ll undoubtedly use for scotchy scotch. Milk would be a bad choice.

Friday
An Art Gallery That Serves Rum at 1am
LEISURE CRUZ

An Art Gallery That Serves Rum at 1am

Statements you’ll make at this new Latin-themed art-gallery-cum-bar: “This mural clearly explores themes of alienation and struggle.” “This rum sure is tasty.” They’re open late, so you’ll want to stop by when you’re in need of tacos, DJs, Presidente beer... and clever use of shadow and color.

Bar Pilar Keeps Cranking Late Night
LATE SHIFT

Bar Pilar Keeps Cranking Late Night

Your biggest problem as the clock strikes midnight: the relative lack of halibut ceviche and suckling pig. No more, as Bar Pilar dishes its small plates upstairs until 1am. Think charcuterie, snacks and more adventurous eats like trout roe with sunny-side egg. You like to settle your late-night bets with caviar anyway.

Fri-Sat starting Jul 20, Bar Pilar, 1833 14th St NW, 202-265-1751

Saturday
A Marriage of Kayaking and Limoncello
CELLO PLAYER

A Marriage of Kayaking and Limoncello

Things to do in West Virginia: kayak down a lazy stretch of the Shenandoah for the afternoon. Then on to your reward: visiting a tiny boutique distillery that specializes in limoncello, Italian-style cordials... and snow cones made with the same.
