Things to do for May 01, 2013
Human Cockfighting, a $60 Julep and Other Crazy Things
The weekend will calmly explain what an exacta is.
A Subterranean Hideout Downtown
On one side of this new subterranean downtown spot, you’ll find international small plates like charred lamb ribs and doro wot. On the other side: a white-tablecloth outpost of Heritage India, this one with museum-worthy artifacts from India, like framed letters signed by the maharajas. Just like the one in your apartment.
Hill Country Sets Up on NBM’s Lawn
A giant lawn is a terrible thing to waste. Hence, the Building Museum has invited Hill Country to set up shop all summer. Expect a tent, some picnic tables and some barrels spilling over with barbecue sandwiches, hot sausage links, margaritas and Shiner beers, along with live music on weekends. Bring your line-dancing shoes.
H Street Country Club is getting a jump on the Cinco de Mayo festivities with $2 beers, $5 margaritas and live music on Saturday. Oh, and “human cockfighting,” in which you’ll don oversized gloves and a rooster mask, and challenge all comers. Probably after the beers.
Come Sunday, people will ride horses in Kentucky. You’ll wear an interesting hat and seek out mint-spiked bourbon. Might as well be outside, as Bourbon Steak sets up their patio with TVs and a julep bar, including a $60 version with 16-year bourbon, XO cognac and a take-home copper cup. For when your trifecta hits.
Bond is 50. So the good folks at the Jefferson decided to celebrate with those Bond characters most worth celebrating: the Bond girls. Expect seven courses (at least one delivered by costumed geishas), all themed around famous Bond women, with plenty of Bond’s favorite libations. No, they don’t expect you to die.
