Things to do for September 06, 2012
Harry Truman, Thomas Jefferson and a Hot Tub
The weekend accepts your nomination.
For Fashion’s Night Out, the haberdashers at Streets of Georgetown are setting you up with beer from Lost Rhino, mini steak sandwiches from Morton’s and a raffle that could get you a custom-made suit or dinner for two. Oh, and 30% off the entire store. It’s like three pinstripes for the price of two.
Going to Heaven... Hot Tub Heaven
After a summer of road trips, it’s time to settle into... an autumn of more road trips. Especially when there are hot tubs at the end of the road. Like at this series of Virginia cabins in the Blue Ridge foothills, each sporting a whirlpool tub. Just get out every now and then so you don’t pickle.
Thomas Jefferson’s Fries at Quill
Thomas Jefferson: big french-fry guy, it turns out. No, really, he talked about them in his papers. For the 150th birthday of the $2 bill, the Jefferson’s hotel bar is serving up fries inspired by TJ’s recipe for two bucks. Which ought to make that $15 rum cocktail go down a little easier.
Trying on Shirts at Harry Truman’s Bar
The gents from Hugh & Crye are taking over the Occidental’s Truman Bar on Saturday to show off their new shirts and jackets. Your ticket also gets you a cocktail, plus appetizers like truffled deviled eggs and short rib grilled cheese. Now get in there and give ’em hell.
Spinal Tap and Shots of Whiskey
Music film festivals: good. Music film festivals at bars: better. This month, Wisdom is showing music flicks every Sunday. Your feature this week: This Is Spinal Tap. Your drink: a Jameson and a Natty Boh for eight bucks. No word on a cameo from a too-small Stonehenge.
