Things to do for November 15, 2013
New Brunches, New Donuts and New Growler Stations
The weekend thinks you’re bluffing.
Beer from 18 Taps... to Go
Your growler fills just got high-tech. Because this newish booze emporium in Petworth now has a robotic-looking system with a flat-screen display and a dispenser that regulates exact CO2 levels. The better to keep your Epic Hopulent hoppy and your Allagash Fluxus... fluxing.
A Holiday HQ for Preppiness
Plaid button-downs. Embroidered cords. Even madras shorts. They’re now all in one place for the holidays—phew—as local e-tailer Tuckernuck, DC-based designer Read Wall and shorts specialist Chubbies are showing up together in Cady’s Alley. Popped collar optional.
Poste’s Outdoor Lounge Returns
Look at it this way: it’s easier to appreciate a good s’mores fondue and some chili- and bourbon-spiked hot chocolate when you’re outside. Poste’s winter lounge is back open, and in addition to the warm cocktails, they’ll have fire pits and blankets for you to borrow. Snuggling potential: high.
When one of the city’s best restaurants starts casual coffee-and-pastry service, you know you’ve got a new place to seek out wi-fi. So it is as Palena rolls out ham-filled pop-tarts, donuts and wood-fired bagels, with servers checking on you every so often. Why, yes, you’d love another pop-tart.
Oysters and Caviar at Eat the Rich
Redneck Laundry. Yes, it’s what happens after you wear a redneck tuxedo. But it’s also featured at Eat the Rich’s new brunch—caviar with Route 11 potato chips. In addition, you’ll find three kinds of oyster shooters, huge bowls of seafood stew and Bloody Marys in pitchers. Maybe it’s still Saturday night.
