The Weekender

Donut Ice Cream, Bacon Kraut and All Kinds of Pie

My, what a big weekend you have.

Wednesday
Donut Ice Cream. It’s Here.
DONUT DECONSTRUCTION

Donut Ice Cream. It’s Here.

This week’s exhibit in the fall of Western civilization: the new Shake Shack next to the Spy Museum is blending donuts into frozen custard. An Astro coconut donut, to be specific, with strawberry jam and rainbow sprinkles. Because if it didn’t have sprinkles, you’d ask for them.

Available now, $4.25-$6.50, Doughnuts Are Forever at Shake Shack, 800 F St NW, 202-800-9930

Thursday
A Grill-and-Beer Rooftop Party
BOMBS BURSTING

A Grill-and-Beer Rooftop Party

This holiday, you need a rooftop and you need beer. 1905 has both. Your admission gets you a protein (wings, smoked ribs) from the grill, plus two sides (cornbread, bacon kraut). The guys from 3 Stars Brewing will be on hand to supply the beer. Feel free to salute.

Jul 4, 3-10pm, $15 ($20 at door), 1905, 1905 9th St NW, 202-332-1905, tickets here

Friday
A Month of Pies at Pearl Dive
UPPER CRUST

A Month of Pies at Pearl Dive

By Friday, you’ll be brimming with patriotism. And nothing’s more American than pie. All month, Pearl Dive is dealing in whole pies to go, like key lime pie, peanut-butter-black-bottom pie and Kentucky Derby pie with chocolate chips, walnuts and bourbon. Yes, it still needs whipped cream.

Saturday
Two Months of ’80s Flicks at AFI
GNARLY

Two Months of ’80s Flicks at AFI

You probably haven’t seen Risky Business on the big screen. Or A Fish Called Wanda. Or Trading Places. Well, now’s your chance, as AFI kicks off a two-month ’80s film fest this Saturday with Videodrome. Which you might not have seen anywhere.

Monday
A Pop-Up Ice Cream Cart
KEEP IT COOL

A Pop-Up Ice Cream Cart

Come next week, a longer lunch may be in order. Because you may have to work in a stroll to the Fairmont, whose restaurant is popping up an ice cream cart with freeze pops, Rice Krispies ice cream sandwiches and ice cream cupcakes. And thus, you’ve found the upside to the heat.
