The Weekender

Bond Bad Guys, Bottomless Margaritas and Spanish Cashmere

The weekend has a surplus of yams.

Friday
Like a Popsicle for Your Hot Cocoa
WARM FRONT

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.

Available now at Pleasant Pops, 1781 Florida Ave NW, 202-558-5224

Your Holiday Clothes, Now from Spain
MASS APPEAL

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.

No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Die
BAD GUYS

No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Die

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.)

Saturday
A Second Bar = Bitter Cocktails
DOUBLE ROOM

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
BAND TOGETHER

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.

Sat-Sun, noon-4pm, Bandolero, 3241 M St NW, 202-625-4488
