The weekend always tears up on the podium.

Thursday
DC’s Newest Beers Debut Tonight
STAR CHAMBER

DC’s Newest Beers Debut Tonight

At this rate, you may never drink beer from an actual state ever again. The District’s latest entry: 3 Stars out of Takoma, premiering tonight at ChurchKey. In addition to a couple mystery kegs, they’ll have their Pandemic Porter, Southern Belle imperial brown and the Urban Farmhouse, which is a Belgian ale. Also, a hipster commune.

Grab the wool flannel for those professorial occasions or the full tuxedo for those professorial occasions that involve major awards.

Sunday
Where Funnel Cake Meets Whiskey Punch
IF IT’S SUNDAY...

Where Funnel Cake Meets Whiskey Punch

Sometimes the best picnics are indoors. Like the ones with bourbon-berry punch. And A/C. Until the end of summer, Cashion’s is rolling out three-course Sunday feasts. The menu will change, but we hear bacon deviled eggs, pulled pork and funnel cake with ice cream are in the rotation. Did we mention the A/C...
