The Weekend Menu: Bacon Beignets, Grilled Cheese and Candy

The weekend hates it when you make that face.

Thursday
Creative Uses of Bacon, Part 497
BELLY RINGS

Creative Uses of Bacon, Part 497

Powdered sugar. Sweetened condensed milk. Crunchy pork belly. All potential themes for your next house party. Also: the accoutrements you’ll find on the new beignets at the Passenger. They go great with cocktails. In fact, they go great with life.

A Month of Grilled Cheeses
MELT WITH YOU

A Month of Grilled Cheeses

You know how Grilled Cheese Month always sneaks up on you. Yup, it’s here again. Your HQ for grilled-cheese-related festivities: Bourbon Steak, which is rolling out one new variation each week, like truffled pecorino with foie gras butter on brioche. It’s naughty. Freaky naughty.

Saturday
Bottomless Crawfish, Pig and Beer
RAPID BOIL

Bottomless Crawfish, Pig and Beer

Sometimes you want to ease into your weekend. Other times you want to show up at Pearl Dive at noon to partake in a bottomless Louisiana feast of crawfish, suckling pig, shrimp, cornbread and sausage. Oh, and Abita beer. Once again... it’s bottomless.

Monday
Homemade Candy on the Hill
SUGAR RUSH

Homemade Candy on the Hill

You’re on a post-Peeps comedown. You need a fix, and bad. Well, here’s a pop-up by a new dealer in candy and desserts. Every Monday, they’ll be hawking unlimited moon pies, caramels, truffles and mallow cakes. Wash them down with a specialty cocktail or two. To keep you balanced.

Tuesday
What a Hamilton Gets You These Days
SAWBUCKS

What a Hamilton Gets You These Days

You like pizza. You like burgers. Well, you’ll like Tuesdays and Wednesdays this month. For the 10th anniversary of the original Matchbox, you can grab a small pizza for 10 bucks on Tuesdays. Then come back on hump day for 10 mini burgers for 10 bucks. It has all the makings of a challenge.

Through April, Matchbox, 713 H St NW, 202-289-4441
