Amazing name. Even better headphones: Fanny Wang’s noise-isolating ’phones, on Perks for 28% off the going rate. Also, your next handsome tie, courtesy of NYC’s Graham Withers: 50 bucks. Finally, we’re giving you $50 toward grooming essentials from Kiehl’s and Molton Brown. Because we care, that’s why.
Things to do for August 23, 2012
Spiked Ice Pops, Shuffleboard and Lobster Rolls
The weekend looks forward to wearing pants and shoes again.
Lobster, More Lobster and... Shrimp
Your lobster traps in the Potomac: less than effective. Fortunately, you needn’t go without, as Luke’s is opening up yet another haven of lobster and shrimp rolls in Georgetown, this one in a two-floor row house filled with wood from Maine shipyards. When you can’t go to Maine, you’ll bring Maine to you.
Sign Up for Cruise-Ship Shuffleboard
And now for something completely different: here’s your chance to dominate a lower-impact sport. For the first time since... well, probably ever, you’ll go to a bar to play shuffleboard. You’ll do this in a league every Monday for eight weeks. Jimmy Buffett shirt optional. Tiki drink: not optional.
Ice Pop Cocktails from a Blast Freezer
Well, it’s about time to start talking about a last blast of summer. In this case, brunch-only cocktails (Greyhound, Tequila Sunrise) at the Green Pig that they mold into ice pops and solidify in a blast freezer. If you want a doggie bag, you’d better bring dry ice.
They Call It “Beer and Fear.” So Do We.
This weekend, you’ll have to earn your beer. Or at least wait for it while you make like Indiana Jones for a couple hours on a treetop-ropes course, ziplines and a giant climbing tower. Your reward: a tasting of six beers at the Rams Head Tavern next door. And no snakes.
Bottomless Crabs and Ribs at Sonoma
You may be getting frustrated that summer is nearing an end. Time to take it out on unlimited quantities of blue crabs. If you’d like to make it a surf-and-turf deal, they’ll also have Virginia pork ribs, along with hush puppies and slaw. Using your mallet on the slaw is not advised.
