The Weekender

Bocce, Indoor Surfing and Creative Uses of Peanut Butter

The weekend loves impromptu four-day weekends.

Thursday
30% Off Your Thanksgiving Turkey
PERK ALERT

30% Off Your Thanksgiving Turkey

This year, you’re getting the most prized breed of turkeys—a USDA Grade A, all-natural beauty from Robinson’s—delivered, for 30% off. And since you’ll need something to carve it with, we’re getting you up to 64% off the sharpest knives on earth. And, not Thanksgiving-y, but still: some handsome, exclusive vintage furniture.

It’s PB&J’s Moment. Or Month, Anyway.
SHE DON’T USE JELLY

It’s PB&J’s Moment. Or Month, Anyway.

Don’t look now, but it’s National Peanut Butter Lovers Month (it sneaks up on you every year). Your HQ: Lincoln, where they’re turning out stuff like peanut rock shrimp with peanut butter pop rocks and PB&J bread pudding with housemade jelly ice cream. We can’t promise it won’t stick to the roof of your mouth.

Through November, Lincoln, 1110 Vermont Ave NW, 202-386-9200

Friday
Dirt-Cheap Burgers All Day at PJ’s
TWO-BUCK CHUCK

Dirt-Cheap Burgers All Day at PJ’s

Congrats. You went in one end of the hurricane and came out the other unscathed. (Well, in a way.) Here to reward you as they celebrate their second anniversary: PJ Clarke’s, who’re throwing $2 burgers your way all day and night. And afternoon.

Saturday
Playing Pre-Election Bocce on the Hill
ROLLING YOUR OWN

Playing Pre-Election Bocce on the Hill

If you can take a few hours away from getting out the vote, may we suggest a bocce tournament. Politically themed, of course. In between vanquishing your foes, you can make a campaign button and show off your political-scandal costume. Oh, and have a beer.

Nov 3, 1-7pm, The 201 Bar, 201 Massachusetts Ave NE, 202-544-5201

Monday
Surfing, Now Indoors
BOARD ROOM

Surfing, Now Indoors

If you’d played your cards right, you could have probably surfed nearby on Monday. But there’s an easier way: SurfSET, a fitness regimen that has you perched atop a beached longboard, beginning preview classes at Mint. You’ll paddle out, pop up and carve turns. Shark risk: minimal.

Wednesday
New York Pizza Lands in Chinatown
HEY, GUYS

New York Pizza Lands in Chinatown

New York could use a few positive vibes right now. Might as well generate them by eating some Manhattan-style pie. This smart-looking shop has you sitting among New York memorabilia while you feast on deck-oven pizza with housemade mozz, calzones and giant sandwiches. No word on sodas bigger than 16 ounces.
