For their 90th birthday, the legendary Allen Edmonds designed an exclusive line of fall-worthy shoes—they’re priced well below their norm, and only available on Perks. Also, take 30% off football season’s best beef jerky, and pick up your VIP tickets to the Breeders’ Cup—before it’s too late.
Things to do for September 13, 2012
If Ulysses S. Grant Were a Bartender...
The weekend just needs a little fresh air.
Drinking Like Stonewall Jackson
If you’d like to pass for a Civil War general, better get started on that beard. Until then, you can drink like one. Shaw’s Tavern has rolled out a drink list inspired by a classic cocktail book from 1860. On it: Philadelphia Fish House punch, gin juleps and moonshine. Don’t try them all at once.
A New Destination for Steak and BBQ
Friday. Time to head into the ’burbs. Well, only because the ’burbs now include a new spot for beer-roasted chicken, smoked prime rib and pancetta mac and cheese—namely Epic Smokehouse, a steakhouse/BBQ joint from two vets of the Palm. Yes, there’s bacon-infused bourbon.
Six Bottomless Bloodys at P.J. Clarke’s
Nothing wrong with your weekend indulgences getting started a little early. Like with the six Bloody Marys on P.J.’s new list—think sriracha sauce, gin, grapefruit and blue-cheese olives. Oh, and if you’re feeling particularly indulgent, you can ask for them in bottomless form.
Your New Suit, plus a Rock Party
Now that Led Zeppelin is getting a Kennedy Center Honor, you’ll know where to get your outfit for the occasion. Lost Boys is debuting the rock-and-roll-inspired collection by John Varvatos in DC, with all the leather, shearling vests and Grammy-ready suits you’d expect. Looks good on groupies, too.
A Pop-Up Indian Restaurant in Petworth
These pop-up restaurants. So secretive, so clandestine. Well, not this one. See, there was this contest for aspiring chefs, where they’d get to use the space at Domku on Mondays. And this Indian chef won the right to serve you all kinds of dosas, chutneys and noodle puddings. Everybody wins.
