Things to do for January 10, 2014

The Weekender

A New Penn Quarter Bar, ’70s Bocce and Arctic Softball

Take two of these and call the weekend in the morning.

Friday
It’s All White Truffles at Fiola
TRUFF’ ENOUGH

It’s All White Truffles at Fiola

Good thing you left “avoid truffles” off your resolutions list, because here they come. The white ones. The good ones. And Fiola’s got them at cost. They’ll put together a truffle tasting menu for you. Or just buy your own truffle and have them start shaving it over your risotto, your farm egg, your ravioli, your...

A New Bar in Penn Quarter. Sans Food.
’POT LUCK

A New Bar in Penn Quarter. Sans Food.

Lately, the Capitals have taken away your appetite. Good thing then that the new Jackpot bar across the street doesn’t serve food. What they do serve: two dozen beers and simple cocktails like a French 75 and a Moscow Mule made with mezcal. So not very Moscow-like at all.

Now open daily at 4pm, Jackpot, 726 7th St NW, 202-628-5225

Tacos, Now with Delivery
GOING MOBILE

Tacos, Now with Delivery

Picture it: it’s Saturday. There’s football on. And you start thinking how you’d love some lamb tacos. And how you’d really rather not go outside to get them. Enter Surfside, which is now doing delivery to the 20007 and 20016 zips, or carhop service for anyone. But probably not on roller skates.

Now delivering, Surfside, 2444 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-380-9353

Like a ’70s Disco, but with Bocce
NIGHT FEVER

Like a ’70s Disco, but with Bocce

And now, more things you wouldn’t be doing if you lived in Oklahoma: playing late-night bocce with day-glo balls while you drink ’70s throwback cocktails like the Harvey Wallbanger and the Rob Roy. Make it the ultimate event in your late-night Olympics.

Jan 11, 10pm, Vendetta, 1212 H St NE, 202-399-3201

Sunday
Playing Softball in the Freezing Cold
RBI

Playing Softball in the Freezing Cold

Here’s a new one for the sabermetrics guys: batting average in relation to game-time temperature. Figure it out as you warm up for Polar Bear Softball, which gets started with league play on the Mall next weekend. No word on a ruling if you lose a ground ball in the snow.

Registration closes Jan 14 for Sunday play starting Jan 19, on the Ellipse, register here
