The Weekender

Rare Beer, Spiked Shakes and Pickles

The weekend looks forward to 01/01/2101.

50 Beers You Can’t Get Here

Time to see what they’re doing in Florida, Georgia and monastic retreats in the New Mexico desert. Beer-wise, that is. Tonight only, Scion’s got 50 beers not normally distributed in DC. Like Ska Modus Hoperandi IPA, Foothills Seeing Double IPA and probably plenty of other clever puns.

Dec 13, 5pm, Scion, 2100 P St NW, 202-833-8899

30% Off at the Diner + Spiked Shakes
FLOAT ON

30% Off at the Diner + Spiked Shakes

The Diner debuts its winter menu tonight, and they’re knocking 30% off new items like the Popeye, a grilled cheese with feta and spinach. They’ll also have samples of new cocktails like a Bacon Bourbon Float and a peppermint shake with crème de menthe. Candy cane included.

A Whole Evening of Ugly Sweaters
COSBY KIDS

A Whole Evening of Ugly Sweaters

It sits in your closet, festooned with reindeer and fir trees, destined to see the outside world only one night a year. This is that night. Wear an ugly sweater to the Mellow Mushroom and get all their seasonal drafts for $2. Then step into their photo booth to document the ugliness.

Friday
Nage Returns for Your After-Work Trysts
RANDY MOSS

Nage Returns for Your After-Work Trysts

This secret little spot on Scott Circle is back after a renovation with barn wood and tiles of live moss. Happy hour gets you $6 cocktails while you assess the menu from the new chef, a vet of Fiola. Think cold-weather combatants like pork loin and beans, crab gratin and blackened catfish sandwiches.

Saturday
Holiday Shopping at a Brewery
STAR SEARCH

Holiday Shopping at a Brewery

Shopping malls. You’d rather not. Especially when you can get some holiday cheer (and edible gifts) at a brewery. 3 Stars is pouring six beers (including a bourbon-barrel-aged porter) while you peruse offerings from artists, sausage makers and pickle purveyors. Nothing stuffs a stocking like pickles.
