Italian Breakfast, Exotic Cars and Hot Dogs

Give the weekend an inch, it’ll take a mile.

Get Your Italian Donuts Here
BREAKFAST BULLETIN

Get Your Italian Donuts Here

Fabio Trabocchi is now cooking breakfast. Which means you’ve got a new morning power spot. Or at least a new morning spot to binge on grilled flatbreads with salmon, frittatas and cream-filled Italian donuts. Yeah, nothing wrong with going alone for that.

The Boots You’ve Been Looking For
GET YOUR WINGS

The Boots You’ve Been Looking For

This weekend at Brooks Brothers: all the Red Wing boots you could ever want. Apart from their Minnesota-made work boots (the kind of boots that built America), you’ll also find Brooks Brothers exclusives, like chukka boots and dressy cap-toed numbers. Which surely can build something.

Two Nights of Guitar Goddesses
AXE WOMEN

Two Nights of Guitar Goddesses

This just in: there’s a magazine for female guitar players called She Shreds. Update: they’re having a festival here this weekend. Yup, 15 bands over two days, all helmed by badass women guitar players. Much better than that female harmonica festival you went to.

Saturday
Ferraris and Bentleys. In Rockville.
EXOTIC LOCALE

Ferraris and Bentleys. In Rockville.

Seventy degrees and sunny on Saturday. Feels like a Bentley kind of day. If you’re lacking one, head for the annual Rockville car show, where they... have some. Walk around and take a look at an ’87 Lotus, among 500 others. Then offer to trade pink slips with the owners.

Sunday
All-Day Happy Hour at Black Jack
KICKOFF

All-Day Happy Hour at Black Jack

If it’s Sunday, it’s football. Also: it’s happy hour at Black Jack. What this means: half-off drafts, pizzas and burgers, $10 buckets of four canned beers and a $10 hot dog basket with two étouffée- and gumbo-topped dogs. Oh, and TVs. They have those, too.

Sundays, 3pm-close (1pm for early Redskins games), Black Jack, 1612 14th St NW, 202-319-1612
