Things to do for December 07, 2012

The Weekender

Suits, Ties and So Many Oysters...

The weekend only negotiates from a position of strength.

Friday
60% Off at Streets of Georgetown
SALE-ING

60% Off at Streets of Georgetown

Sad news: Streets of Georgetown, your treasure trove of all things tweed and cashmere, is closing next month. In the meantime, you can take 60% off the store, from Bobby Jones golf shirts to the favored suits of President Obama, Hickey Freeman. They’re working out okay for him.

Saturday
A Trunk Show of Next-Level Italian Ties
TIE FIGHTER

A Trunk Show of Next-Level Italian Ties

You know the story: former White House staffer connects with Berlusconi’s tie maker. Okay, maybe you don’t know. You should still know his ties, hand-sewn in Como, folded seven times and now at a discount at this weekend’s trunk show. Your next deal practically closes itself.

The March of Banh Mi and Pho Continues
HEY, SPROUT

The March of Banh Mi and Pho Continues

Good thing you’d like some soup and spice right about now, because here’s another Vietnamese spot. Pick from stuff like meatball pho and pork-belly banh mi, then consult the handy maps on the wall for tips on how to garnish and eat your dishes. It’s a dinner cheat sheet.

Sunday
Grab-and-Go Oysters at Dupont Market
SHELL GAME

Grab-and-Go Oysters at Dupont Market

No sooner will brunch conclude than you’ll start thinking about... oysters. Well, if you’re strolling through the Dupont farmers’ market, anyway. They pull these things out of Virginia’s Eastern Shore every day and serve them up shucked, roasted or in the shell for take-home. Better find your gold-plated oyster knife.

Wednesday
19 Kegs from DC Brau at Meridian Pint
MURDERERS’ ROW

19 Kegs from DC Brau at Meridian Pint

You’d expect this kind of thing to arrive in a sleigh—19 kegs of DC Brau beers, the most ever in one place, including wacky stuff like Burial at Sea and Fight Club. Also, they’re at happy hour prices all night. And no, they wouldn’t fit in your stocking anyway.

Dec 12, 5pm-close, Meridian Pint, 3400 11th St NW, 202-588-1075
