The Weekender

A Twin Peaks Brunch, Growlers and Prosecco Taps

The weekend won’t be going to any sorority mixers.

CARRY OVER

Tom Tom Reopens as Carriage House

Don’t look now, but another Adams Morgan bar is upping its game. Actually, look. The Tom Tom space has gotten a face-lift, with plenty of brick, 12 taps and a wood-fired pizza oven turning out pies like The Potomac (shrimp, arugula, pesto, peppers). It beats a jumbo slice.

Now open, Carriage House, 2333 18th St NW, 202-817-3255

28 Take-Home Drafts at D’Vines
FILLING STATION

28 Take-Home Drafts at D’Vines

Well, this ought to keep you busy—a lineup of more than two dozen drafts for your growler-filling pleasure, thanks to this Columbia Heights shop (and the recently liberalized liquor laws). Expect German hefeweizens, multiple DC Brau offerings and vintage kegs from Dogfish Head. They were all good years.

Friday
If It’s Arbor Day, It’s Beer
GOOD WOOD

If It’s Arbor Day, It’s Beer

You don’t really need an excuse to try new beer. But just in case, here’s one anyway: Arbor Day. In honor of the tree-ish holiday, the local Pizzeria Paradisos are pouring 38 different wood- and barrel-aged drafts. It’s what Treebeard would want.

Saturday
A Twin Peaks and Pie Brunch
PEAK PERFORMANCE

A Twin Peaks and Pie Brunch

If your recent brunches have been insufficiently surreal, then we direct you to the Blaguard for this brunch with Qualia coffee, sweet and savory pies by Whisked, $4 mimosas... and four hours’ worth of classic Twin Peaks episodes. Even your pie will have a double meaning when it’s all over.

Apr 27, 10am-2pm, The Blaguard, 2003 18th St NW, 202-232-9005

Morning, Meet Oxtail Gravy and Biscuits
BRUNCHING

Morning, Meet Oxtail Gravy and Biscuits

Bottomless mimosas from an antique tap. Oh, you’d like us to go on. Okay. Well, add to that oxtail gravy and biscuits, breakfast sandwiches with pork belly and goat cheddar, and cornmeal cakes with apple butter. There, that’s brunch at the new Beuchert’s. And it fills up quickly.
