The Weekender

A Wake for the Nationals, Burlesque Brunch and All Kinds of Tacos

The weekend doesn’t let anyone see its binders.

Thursday
Nats Gear = Gratis Wings Tonight
POSTSEASON

Nats Gear = Gratis Wings Tonight

So, yeah, last Friday sucked. If you’re not quite done commiserating yet, don some Nats gear and head to Duffy’s for complimentary wings, $10 pitchers... and probably another round of second-guessing Davey Johnson.

Saturday
Red Wing Heritage Lands at Brooks Bros.
ROCK THE RED

Red Wing Heritage Lands at Brooks Bros.

And now, an urgent message for your feet: you can find the entire line of Red Wing Heritage, the 100-year-old brand from Minnesota, at Brooks Brothers, including a new collaboration with tartan plaid waxed canvas. They’re the kind of boots that steel is no match for. Nor the occasional cobblestone sidewalk.

The Vests You’ve Been Looking For
FULLY VESTED

The Vests You’ve Been Looking For

The vintage collectors at Butler + Claypool are popping up this weekend in Columbia Heights with all manner of Woolrich barn jackets, shooting vests, Chelsea boots and denim scarves that they’ve been cranking out. On Saturday afternoon, they’ll even style you up. Wouldn’t want to wear the wrong vest with your new boots.

Oct 20-21, 11am-6pm; menswear styling Oct 20, 3-5pm; Butler + Claypool, 1469 Harvard St NW (rear), 202-518-0804

Sunday
Your Brunch Just Got More Titillating
BRUNCHING

Your Brunch Just Got More Titillating

If you have attention-deficit issues, Sax’s new brunch may not be the place for you. There’s the lobster hash with fried eggs in front of you. The arty burlesque performers on stage. The bottomless Bloodys or mimosas. Oh, and your brunch companion. They’d better be interesting.

Sundays, noon-3pm, Sax, 734 11th St NW, reserve at 202-737-0101

Monday
A Football-Night Taco Pop-Up
LA BAMBA

A Football-Night Taco Pop-Up

Tacos with two kinds of tongue. Tacos with sweetbreads and octopus. Tequila cocktails. Yup, it’s football night. At least it is at Black Jack, where the forthcoming Taco Bamba is testing its wares with an all-you-can-eat menu preview. Whatever the taco over/under is, you’ll cover it.
