Things to do for March 06, 2013

The Weekender

The Weekend’s Here. Grab It by the Lapels.

You can find the weekend in its snow fort.

Wednesday
Mothership Touches Down on Georgia
SHIP SHAPE

Mothership Touches Down on Georgia

You’ve now got another casual dinner spot, and it comes from the guy behind the El Floridano truck. Think local art, a big communal table and dishes like wild-boar rigatoni, catfish with grits and gnocchi with tongue and escargots. To come in the spring: an outdoor patio and lots of local beer.

Beaver and Alligator at Rocklands
THE WILD ONES

Beaver and Alligator at Rocklands

Rocklands. Usually a good spot for an emergency pulled-pork sandwich. But this week, during their annual Grills Gone Wild days, you can get a little more exotic. Exotic like wild-beaver sausage, alligator Brunswick stew and blackened-snakehead tacos. They wisely eschewed the horse meat.

Through Mar 9, Rocklands, 2418 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-333-2558, and other area locations

Friday
Up to 80% Off on Bikes, Kayaks, Tents
TRAIL MIX

Up to 80% Off on Bikes, Kayaks, Tents

You see snow, you want to get out in it. If only you had ski poles, maybe a new parka, definitely a tent and a camp stove. Well, stock up for the next go-round, as Hudson Trail cleans out its inventory for spring. Also useful if you’ve become a survivalist recently.

Starts Mar 8, 10am, Hudson Trail Outfitters, 12085 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD, 301-881-4955, and 9488 Fairfax Blvd, Fairfax, VA, 703-591-2950

Cashion’s Now Serving till Midnight
CASHING IN

Cashion’s Now Serving till Midnight

Sometimes your dates get started late. It’s okay. Here’s another place they can end late: Cashion’s is now serving its menu of stuff like lamb ribs, rabbit-leg confit and dry-aged rib eye until midnight on weekends. Yes, they have nightcaps, too.
