Things to do for November 23, 2012
Bond Bad Guys, Bottomless Margaritas and Spanish Cashmere
The weekend has a surplus of yams.
Like a Popsicle for Your Hot Cocoa
It’s not popsicle weather. We know. Fortunately, there’s now such a thing as hot chocolate pops. Well, we’re glad you asked. These are basically cubes of really good chocolate (spicy Mexican, salted) on a stick that you swirl in your steaming mug of frothy milk. Yup, you’ll want to dunk something.
Your Holiday Clothes, Now from Spain
Spanish outfitter Massimo Dutti has landed their second US store in Georgetown and brought with them all manner of winter staples, like cashmere-blend peacoats, corduroy blazers, and stacks of twill and poplin shirts. You won’t have to pay in euros.
If you’ve got a white cat, now’s a good time for its public debut, as the Spy Museum walks you through 50 years of Bond’s nemeses. In addition to inspecting the usual movie props, you can try your hand at disarming a missile against the clock or hanging from your fingertips as long as Bond often does. (Only he does it in a tux.)
A Second Bar = Bitter Cocktails
Good news: Room 11 is now... less tiny. Better news: their new bar deals coffee and pastries all day, and specializes in serving you bitter cocktails at night alongside your roasted quail and pork-belly grilled cheese. Yes, of course a pork-belly grilled cheese sounds good.
Bottomless Margaritas at Bandolero
We know you may have just overdosed on poultry. Better dress it up with donuts and bottomless margaritas. There, that’s better. Oh, by the way: you can now get these at Bandolero’s new weekend brunch. Also: eggs.
