The Weekender

Outdoor Bars, Tacos and Tax-Day Drinking

The weekend looks great in green.

Thursday
Driving Supercars in the Poconos
PERK ALERT

Driving Supercars in the Poconos

Lamborghinis. Ferraris. Maseratis. With Perks, you can spend a day gunning these supercars down the legendary Pocono Raceway. We’re also connecting you with a trove of rare vintage Rolexes and Cartiers and getting you 25% off some new vintage-style leather headphones. (If you’re an Outlook.com member, they’re an extra 10% off.)

Lighting Up on Bourbon Steak’s Patio
SMOKE SIGNALS

Lighting Up on Bourbon Steak’s Patio

You’re not on a patio right now. Let’s remedy that. Bourbon Steak’s is now open, and they’re rolling out rum runners with house-infused banana rum, rare Japanese whiskeys and a new lineup of cigars—great for when they light the fire pits after dark. Oh, and steak. They still have steak.

An Outdoor Bar with a Projection TV
REYNOLDS RAP

An Outdoor Bar with a Projection TV

If you’re at the Caps game, it’s okay to be inside. If not, head to Reynolds’s 25-foot outdoor bar, where you can keep eyes on the big screen while you pick from eight local beers on tap. Bonus tip: buy-one, get-one happy hour is in effect every day from 5 to 9pm. Yes, on everything.

Outdoor bar now open at 5pm daily, DC Reynolds, 3628 Georgia Ave NW, 202-506-7178

270 Years of Booze at the Jefferson
MAJOR TOM

270 Years of Booze at the Jefferson

Thomas Jefferson: writer of declarations. Occasional winner of Presidents Races. And lover of Madeira. Well, old Tom turns 270 on Saturday, and his namesake hotel is pouring a flight of three wines whose ages add up to 270, including one that dates to the 19th century. Might make you want to buy Louisiana.

Through Apr 13, $270, The Jefferson, 1200 16th St NW, 202-448-2300

Friday
A Late-Night Taco Stop on H Street
SOL, MAN

A Late-Night Taco Stop on H Street

Another one of your favorite food trucks has put down roots. This time, it’s the Sol Mexican Grill, which will be turning out burrito bowls and traditional Mexican tacos (lengua, al pastor) from this brick-lined quick-serve spot until 3am on weekends. The perfect time for some tongue.

Monday
If It’s Got Booze, It’s Half Off
THE TAX MAN COMETH

If It’s Got Booze, It’s Half Off

Finally, the kind of cuts everyone can get behind. As a nod to your debt to Uncle Sam, BLT Steak is knocking 50% off all drinks on Monday—barrel-aged cocktails, beer, bottles of champagne, the whole nine yards. If you got a refund, just show up and rub it in everyone’s face.

Apr 15, 11:30am-2:30pm and 5:30-10:30pm, BLT Steak, 1625 I St NW, 202-689-8999
