Huge things are happening in 2013. We’re getting you smart-looking stuff from Cole Haan—thanks to 25% off their entire online store. You’re also getting 60% off dapper dress shirts from the legendary Drake’s London, and 30% off footwear from the British gods of shoemaking, Grenson. See: huge things.
Things to do for January 03, 2013
Whoa. It’s Another Weekend Already.
The weekend preferred the Stallone version of <em>Cliffhanger</em>.
Resolution-Ready Meals, Delivered
Among your resolutions: flipping tires, doing hundreds of pull-ups and, most importantly, eating like a caveman. Enter the folks at Power Supply, who twice per week deliver paleo-diet meals like sloppy joes and sausage-stuffed butternut squash to area CrossFit gyms. Turns out, sloppy joes = more push-ups.
Elvis’s Birthday Fight Club Returns
And now, a word from the King. And some burlesque dancers. And a fighting chicken. Yup, Elvis would be 78 this month, which means the annual Elvis-themed burlesque variety show is back, with costumed fighters and shedding of clothes, all presided over by the big Hound Dog himself.
The Jewish Brunch You’ve Been Craving
Then again, if your resolutions centered around pastrami hash, challah french toast or trying to pronounce things like “shakshouka” while you eat them, you’re in luck. DGS is now doing brunch, including cocktails like iced Russian coffee with Israeli chocolate liqueur. It’s the chosen liqueur.
You enjoy a good story. A tall tale. A yarn. Good thing, because SpeakeasyDC, the local storytelling collective, is presenting eight of last year’s top stories—chronicles of parking lots, steroids and virginity. You’ll have to find someone to tuck you in afterward.
Graffiato Goes Late-Night
FYI: you’re staying out late Monday—and the first Monday of every month—for Graffiato’s Industry Takeover Nights. Basically, they’ll turn over their kitchen to a guest chef and bartender for gratis bites and $5 cocktails. First up: Range’s chef Bryan Voltaggio and mixologist Owen Thomson. Expect big things.
