Things to do for February 20, 2014
This Weekend, Waffles at Any Hour
The weekend is melting. Melting.
Grocery Delivery. Right Now.
You’d hate to be short on champagne in a critical moment. Or bok choy, for that matter. Here to help: Instacart, a service that dispatches a grocery shopper to Harris Teeter or Whole Foods and brings you your quarry in as little as an hour. Don’t forget the cherry Danish for the morning.
Late-Night Waffles and Beer on 14th
You think you want a waffle now... just wait until midnight. Enter B Too, which is rolling out a late-night Belgian menu replete with prosciutto-and-parmesan-stuffed waffles, chicken stew with fries and buckets of ribs, along with half off big bottles of beer. Which you probably also want right now.
Butler & Claypool, the vintage shop that’s been popping up on Capitol Hill, is playing its swan song. But you’ve got one last chance to scoop up their cowboy boots and jackets, even summer stuff like madras shirts and boardshorts. Do it while listening to vinyl and sipping glogg. For old times’ sake.
Your Saturday plan: Olympic hockey finals. Then pie. Specifically, unlimited samples of pie at the Brixton from nine different pie bakers. Your admission also gets you a gratis glass of punch. Resist the impulse to start a pie fight.
Bottomless Bloodys. On Tuesday.
Meatless Mondays. Spaghetti Wednesdays. And now, Brunch Tuesdays. 1905 is rolling out its brunch menu every Tuesday night, which means chicken and waffles, truffled grits with pork belly and bottomless brunch cocktails. Take the leftovers for breakfast.
