The Weekender

Mardi Gras Block Parties, Burlesque and Lots of Pie

The weekend will try to keep the power on.

A Box of Energy Bars, Every Month

Your resolutions were something. Powerlifting in the morning, mini triathlon during happy hour. Now you just need to fuel up. Enter Kona Kase, a new DC-based outfit that drops a box of all kinds of energy and endurance bars on your doorstep once a month. It beats going “full Armstrong.”

Friday
The Black Cat, NOLA-Style
VOODOO MAGIC

The Black Cat, NOLA-Style

You expect certain things from New Orleans: music, titillation, maybe some gruesome sideshows. You can expect the same at Black Cat’s Mardi Gras party—a blues band, a gypsy horn band, burlesque and some brand-new feats from a group of Baltimoreans. Who always conquer when they get to NOLA.

Saturday
Here’s a Chance to Stock Up on Pie
WHISKED AWAY

Here’s a Chance to Stock Up on Pie

It’s that weekend between the Super Bowl and Valentine’s Day. You know, pie weekend. Okay, we just made that up. Nevertheless, Whisked pies are popping up at Pleasant Pops this weekend, where they’re bringing slices and whole pies of Shaker lemon, apple and black-bottom coffee cream. Mmm... breakfast pie.

Sunday
Jack Rose Goes Crazy at Brunch
BRUNCHING

Jack Rose Goes Crazy at Brunch

Maybe brunching in a spot with hundreds of whiskeys isn’t the best idea. Oh, sure it is. For starters, you’ll also find open-faced pork-belly and duck-egg sandwiches, french toast with bourbon sauce and a Bourbon Bacon Blue Cheese Bloody Mary. B there.

Tuesday
A Mardi Gras Block Party Takeover
FAT TUESDAY

A Mardi Gras Block Party Takeover

So no more jokes about power outages. You just want to turn your attention to Mardi Gras. Bayou Bakery is closing down its whole block with live music, costume contests, Rappahannock River oysters, cocktails by Buffalo & Bergen and all the jambalaya, gumbo and king cake you care to consume. And you care a lot.
