Things to do for October 17, 2013
Italian Breakfast, Exotic Cars and Hot Dogs
Give the weekend an inch, it’ll take a mile.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
