Things to do for March 14, 2013

The Weekender

Morning Beer, a Mercedes and Next-Level Bocce

The weekend enjoyed its time at the Vatican.

Thursday
Something for the Bocce Aficionado
PREMIER LEAGUE

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
ALE SALE

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.

Now reopen, dollar drafts and bar snacks Mar 14, 5pm-close, Birreria Paradiso, 3282 M St NW, 202-337-1245

Friday
Your Oyster-and-Fish Chauffeur Is Here
CAR TALK

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.

Tue-Sat, 5:30-11:30pm, $10-$30, BlackSalt, 4883 MacArthur Blvd NW, reserve at 202-342-9101

Saturday
Breakfast in the Port City Tasting Room
TOP O’ THE MORNING

Breakfast in the Port City Tasting Room

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.

Next Tuesday
Burger Sliders + American Whiskeys
NICE PAIR

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.
