Things to do for March 14, 2013
Morning Beer, a Mercedes and Next-Level Bocce
The weekend enjoyed its time at the Vatican.
Something for the Bocce Aficionado
And now, a word about the Premier League. No, not English soccer. DC Bocce. For spring, the league’s top division got its hands on two sparkling new 50-foot courts—a turf court in NoMa and a garden court covered in crushed oysters in Columbia Heights. So it’s extra briny.
Beers and Bar Snacks for a Buck
Maybe you’re not getting a tax refund. Maybe you are. Either way, you could use a dollar beer. Pizzeria Paradiso in Georgetown has renovated its downstairs beer bar (Birreria Paradiso), and they’re celebrating by giving you a draft and a bar snack for a buck each. After that, inflation takes hold.
Your Oyster-and-Fish Chauffeur Is Here
You’ll travel far and wide for great oysters and fish. Even (gulp) to the Palisades. Well, it helps if they’ll give you a ride. BlackSalt will now arrange for a black Mercedes to bring you to the restaurant and take you home. No, you can’t keep the car.
Let’s assume you’re really committed to this St. Patrick’s Day thing. Such fervor might bring you to a brewery at 8am. Especially when it’s pouring seven beers like Tartan ale and Revival oyster stout, and a food truck shows up to dish out breakfast. The most important meal of St. Pat’s Day.
Burger Sliders + American Whiskeys
Small-batch American whiskeys. There, now that we have your attention, let’s tell you about how Adams Morgan’s A.M. Wine Shoppe is uncorking rare whiskey bottles, while the chef from Cashion’s rolls out burger sliders with cheddar and housemade pickles. UD readers get first crack at tickets.
