Things to do for November 07, 2013
New Gin, $1 Oysters and Ice-Skating Dates
The weekend gets dark earlier these days.
That $12 burning a hole in your wallet... well, it’s worth 12 oysters. Or that $3 in your car’s cup holder... it’s worth three oysters. And... well, anyway, Zentan’s now shucking $1 War Shore oysters every Thursday for happy hour. Betcha can’t eat just one.
The Virginia distiller behind Copper Fox Rye and Wasmund’s Single Malt has bottled his first gin from malted barley. He calls it Vir. Get it? Anyway, it’s debuting at Vinoteca tonight, with gratis tastings and $7 classic gin cocktails. Yes, they’ll be gentle.
It’s Skating Season Again
This weekend: back to being chilly at night. Embrace it. Also to be embraced: your date, as you make loops around the Georgetown Harbour’s massive skating rink, opening for the season tomorrow at noon. Spiked hot chocolate is never far behind.
Brunch Without Bottoms for the Holiday
Maybe you’re not off on Monday. Well, that’s what sick days are for. Because Zengo, Masa 14 and Richard Sandoval’s other local spots are rolling out their $35 bottomless brunch. Which means unlimited plates like lobster-chipotle grits and drinks like guava mimosas. There’s no nap like a guava mimosa nap.
They Call Him the “Scotch Whisky Man”
First thing to know about this event: it benefits wounded warriors. Second thing to know: there’ll be unlimited beer, wine, cigars and hors d’oeuvres. Third thing to know: a guy known as the “Scotch Whisky Man” will be there pouring bottles up to 30 years old. You should meet him.
