The Weekender

Pies, Croquet and Other Weekend Necessities

The weekend is an honorary Bostonian.

Thursday
A Pie Empire Creeps Ever Onward
CRUSTY

A Pie Empire Creeps Ever Onward

Think about your present situation. You realize it’s not all that it could be. For starters, there probably isn’t pie involved. Well, here’s yet another iteration of Dangerously Delicious, bringing all its quiches, beer-brat pies and pancake-batter pies to make sure that doesn’t happen again. You’re welcome.

A Secretive New Bar in Georgetown
GRAHAM GOOD

A Secretive New Bar in Georgetown

Georgetown has a new hotel called the Graham, and your next clandestine rendezvous now has a venue: its tiny, basement-level cocktail lounge called A.G.B. Dark, lined with brick and arrayed with low leather seats, it’s where you can tuck into Kobe sliders and sip the house’s proprietary whiskey.

Saturday
Table Unveils Weekend Brunch
BRUNCHING

Table Unveils Weekend Brunch

The breezy former garage in Shaw is now dealing in Nutella brioche, short ribs with eggs and french toast with peanut butter and banana—all part of a three-course odyssey you can partake in with champagne if you have nothing more compelling to do on Saturday. Which you don’t.

Sat-Sun starting Apr 20, 11am-2pm, $34, Table, 903 N St NW, 202-588-5200, see the menu

The Year’s Most Important Croquet Match
LAWN DOCTOR

The Year’s Most Important Croquet Match

Nothing against televised croquet, but really, you have to see it live. Witness the annual grudge match between St. John’s College and the Naval Academy in Annapolis. Grab a blanket, grab someone you like. Make some sandwiches. Wear hats. Drink champagne. It’s croquet, for God’s sake.

Sunday
Having Dinner in a Gin Distillery
GIN. IT’S WHAT’S FOR DINNER.

Having Dinner in a Gin Distillery

Gin distilleries: great for making gin. But also, as it turns out, not bad for dinner parties, either. The chef from New Heights is setting up shop where they make Green Hat Gin, and turning out five courses like sashimi, beef cheeks and cherry panna cotta. Yes, they’re paired with gin drinks.
