The Weekender

Drive-In Movies and French Maids. It’s the Weekend.

You can reach the weekend at its summer house.

50-Cent Wings and Eggs at the Coupe

Now and again, a happy hour comes along that’s tough to ignore. Like this one at the Coupe—50-cent sriracha wings, deviled eggs and stuffed dates with ham, backed with $3 Natty Bohs, $4 rum punch and $5 wine. Oh, and it lasts until 8. That’s a lot of wings.

Mon-Fri, 5-8pm, The Coupe, 3415 11th St NW, 202-290-3342

Friday
Rock Concerts. At the Lincoln. Soon.
LINCOLN ROCKS

Rock Concerts. At the Lincoln. Soon.

Your number of historic concert venues just increased by one, as the city hands over the keys to the Lincoln Theatre to the folks behind 9:30 Club. On tap for fall shows: Neko Case, Laura Marling, Matt Nathanson and KT Tunstall. Lincoln would’ve loved KT Tunstall.

Union Market: Now a Movie Screen
AT THE DRIVE-IN

Union Market: Now a Movie Screen

In the past, you had to go to Baltimore for a drive-in movie. Now, you can go to Union Market, which is turning its three-story wall into a big screen. Park your car, or just walk up and picnic on the vendors’ wares before the flick starts. First up: Dr. Strangelove.

Saturday
Bastille Day... with French Maids
MAID IN AMERICA

Bastille Day... with French Maids

After last weekend, you’re looking for other countries to celebrate. Here’s one. And this celebration has French maids racing around. There will also be: food trucks, DJs, five street bars... and Marie Antoinette. Hopefully one of those trucks is serving cake.

Monday
Minibar Goes Even Bigger Ticket
NO WAY, JOSÉ

Minibar Goes Even Bigger Ticket

José Andrés is doubling down on the whole Minibar thing. Now he’s got a private chef’s table behind a white curtain, where you’ll get 25 courses with beverage pairings. You just need to gather up five friends. And $3,000. Yep, that’s all.
