Things to do for August 02, 2012

The Weekender

Dr Pepper Tacos, Bacon-Fat Popcorn and Baseball Boats

The weekend always sticks the landing.

Thursday
The Planet’s Best Pork, Delivered
PERK ALERT

The Planet’s Best Pork, Delivered

Mangalitsa pork: the planet’s most superior swine. Naturally, you’re getting up to 32% off its bacon-y goodness, courtesy Møsefund Mangalitsa. Also, take 35% off pure ecstasy... via Jimmyjane’s award-winning pleasure devices. Finally, get a pocket-size golf coach/iPhone app for 25% off. A perfect swing: there’s an app for that.

Dr Pepper Tacos and Tequila in Dupont
DIOS CRIOS

Dr Pepper Tacos and Tequila in Dupont

Dr Pepper and tequila. Probably not a great combo. But Dr Pepper–marinated pork tacos and tequila... now we’re talking. So it is at this bright and casual new Mexican spot, which gets a little creative with the tacos-and-margaritas formula. Don’t try this with RC Cola.

Saturday
Brunch for $10 at Dangerously Delicious
QUICK QUICHE

Brunch for $10 at Dangerously Delicious

Nothing against four-course brunches with omelet stations, but sometimes you just want quick and cheap. Like the pie shop’s brunch deal, where a Hamilton gets you a slice of quiche, salad and an oversized mimosa. Or they’ll just let you spend your 10 spot on bottomless big mimosas. In case you already ate.

The Next Level of Crab Cakes
PRETZEL LOGIC

The Next Level of Crab Cakes

You wouldn’t dare suggest that the Maryland crab cake could be improved upon. Of course, if someone put it on a soft pretzel, you’d listen. At brunch only, Saint-Ex is dropping its coriander-and-orange-spiked cake on a cheddar pretzel roll. Saltshaker not required.

BYOB Sailing, Followed by Baseball
PREGAME

BYOB Sailing, Followed by Baseball

This just in: there’s a better way to pregame than sprinting off the subway to make the first pitch. Like hopping on this 35-person sailboat with some carefully selected beverages for a run down to Old Town and back, before you disembark near the park, tickets in hand. Any rival fans go overboard.

Tuesday
Movie Night... with Bacon Popcorn
SOMETHING ABOUT BACON

Movie Night... with Bacon Popcorn

Shaw’s Tavern is now rolling classic movies on Tuesdays. Next week, take in There’s Something About Mary over two-for-one drafts and wine, Kobe dogs, and popcorn tossed in bacon fat. Which also comes in handy as hair gel.
