Things to do for November 29, 2012
Christmas Trees, Early-Morning Soccer and Jimmy Carter
The weekend is already making merry.
Starting today, Sixth Engine’s patio has all your Christmas-tree-lot essentials—Fraser firs, Douglas firs, stands, wreaths. Oh, and new hot cocktails like the Firehouse Toddy with bourbon, and a hot cocoa spiked with rye and butterscotch schnapps. To fortify you before you lash your tree to the car roof.
Jimmy Carter Shakes and Free Burritos
Now here from Boston... gratis burritos. This lunch spot turns out peanut-banana shakes named for former presidents, and burritos like the Bangkok Thai and spicy buffalo. Show up before 7 tonight and get one on them. Whether or not you mention Gronkowski.
Beautiful Game, Beautiful Brunch
You need a reason to get up early on the weekend. If soccer is one such reason, you’ll want to head to Drafting Table. On the TV: the key European matches. On your plate: the Sexy Egg Sandwich, with prosciutto, arugula and red peppers. Because frankly, your egg sandwiches have been lacking sex appeal.
Brad Wilkerson. Chad Cordero. Austin Kearns. In case you forgot, they played here. And when they did, they wore jerseys. Hats, too. The Nats are unloading some of their stuff, and that of other ex-players, too, including autographed and game-worn merch. We’re guessing Cordero’s hat brim is still flat.
Repeal Day Dinner and Burlesque
While you’re toasting FDR next week, Jack Rose is turning out a menu of 1920s-inspired dishes like lobster thermidor, then pouring bottomless bubbly from 10pm on. Flute in hand, head downstairs for a sneak peek at their upcoming Basement Punch Bar for burlesque and 50-cent punch. Or two for a buck.
