Things to do for November 08, 2012

The Weekender

Sushi Bars, Growlers and So Much Pie

The weekend’s work is not done.

Thursday
In Case You Like Shirts...
HUGH’S GRANT

In Case You Like Shirts...

The gents at Hugh & Crye are giving UD readers 25% off all their button-down collar shirts, from basic blue or white oxfords to bold pink-and-green checks, in case you’re trying to hold on to summer. But the flip-flops probably already give you away.

Through Nov 11, Hugh & Crye, enter code “UDHC25” at checkout (discount good only on button-downs, not spread collars, etc.)

Friday
Pizza + Sushi + Tableside Growlers
FARM-TO-WATER

Pizza + Sushi + Tableside Growlers

Like some kind of fever dream, this place will have you strolling into a giant farmhouse. On the waterfront. Where you can get growlers and flaming bowls of tiki drinks for your table. Alongside pizza, tacos and sushi with compressed watermelon. Which taken together may give you even weirder dreams.

Saturday
Like Oktoberfest... but in November
OKTOBERFEST, CONT’D

Like Oktoberfest... but in November

With October’s demise, so went your chances to... fest. Or so you thought. The beer-loving folks at Rustico are back with another parking-lot party called Novemberfest. Think 40 strong ales and harvest ales, oysters, winter-ale stew and turkey-sausage pie. We can’t promise tubas.

Sunday
Three Words: Mexican. Chocolate. Pie.
UPPER CRUST

Three Words: Mexican. Chocolate. Pie.

We know two things: you’re bereft of pie right now. And it needn’t be so. Not when you’ve got the baker from Whisked popping up this weekend at Qualia Coffee and bringing with her Mexican chocolate pie, salted-caramel apple pie and bacon/leek/gruyère quiche. Which probably doesn’t need whipped cream.

Next Sunday
Cocktails and Carnival Food on H Street
CARNIES

Cocktails and Carnival Food on H Street

There is no Tilt-a-Whirl at this pop-up at Sova. What there is: Two Fat Guys (their name, not ours) serving four courses of carnival-inspired grub like marrow-glazed pretzels, crispy trotters and oyster fritters, each paired with a cocktail, beer or bubbly. You’ll have to bring your own Kewpie doll.

Nov 18, seatings at 6 and 7:30pm, $50, Sova, 1359 H St NE, 202-397-3080, tickets here
