Things to do for August 29, 2013
Retractable Roofs, Led Zeppelin and a New DC Brewery
The weekend: now with more Monday.
A Pizzeria with a Retractable Roof
The first floor at Red Rocks’s new H Street locale is just fine. Twenty taps, couple TVs, great. But what’s better: the roof deck with its indoor-outdoor bar, and the dining room with a retractable skylight roof. First the Astrodome, now this.
You probably weren’t at a Wheaton, MD, gymnasium on the night that Nixon was inaugurated. Not many people were, but a few swear that Led Zeppelin played there. Here to answer whether they’re full of it: the auteur behind the legendary Heavy Metal Parking Lot. He always tackles the tough questions.
A Late-Night Happy Hour. With Brats.
We won’t say that you’ll definitely want a Bavarian brat banh mi at 1am this weekend. But we wouldn’t bet against it either. Bistro Bohem is now doing happy hour until the wee hours, with $10 such sandwiches, along with $5 European beers and shots of slivovitz. Don’t worry about what that is.
Redeem Moves into Bigger Digs
The style curators behind Redeem are moving a couple blocks up 14th Street into a bigger space, where you’ll find a mural of a winged lion, hard-to-find men’s brands from South Korea and a Mutiny pop-up. And on Saturday evening, you’ll also find a DJ, cocktails and a sausage truck out front.
We know what you’re thinking: “Been a while since a DC brewery launched.” Right you are. So here’s Atlas Brew Works, premiering with a week’s worth of events at local beer bars. Expect a rye ale, a California common and a mystery beer called NSFW. Good thing you have the day off.
