We’re hooking you up with three pet jellyfish in an aquarium that doubles as art. (Start brainstorming names.) Your other Perks: futuristically handsome NOVO watches for 20% off, and NASA-worthy cameras from Hasselblad—the guys who put cameras on the moon.
Things to do for August 15, 2013
Oysters, Naked Girls and New Brunch
The weekend knows a guy who knows a guy.
If you’re going to the beach this weekend, congrats. If not, you can still suck down some saltwater at Sonoma, which is coming up oysters all weekend, from an oyster-and-wine tasting tonight to oyster tasting menus tomorrow and Saturday to a giant raw bar on Sunday. That should probably suffice.
You may have heard of this troupe called Naked Girls Reading. They basically read. Naked. While you listen. And look. Where were we... oh, yes, they’re looking for a few good girls, so they’re hosting this open tryout, and you’re invited. Been a while since you enjoyed a good book.
Floating down the Potomac on a tube. Perfectly relaxing. So might as well do something... less relaxing beforehand. Like whipping across an 840-foot zipline through the trees. Consider the tubing your well-deserved adrenaline comedown.
It’s a Bottomless Pizza Brunch
Your love of pizza knows no bounds. Fortunately, neither does 14th Street’s. So here’s the new Piola, rolling out an unlimited brunch of 10 pies topped with everything from ham to smoked salmon. Make an afternoon of it and throw in bottomless Bellinis, mimosas and Aperol spritzes.
Mythical Beasts That Bring Beer
Here’s one reason to start looking forward to fall—150 autumn ales and Oktoberfest lagers in one place. That place: the Snallygaster beer festival, returning for its second year, this time to the Union Market parking lot. Feel free to tailgate in an adjoining parking lot.
