The Weekender

Your Weekend: The Dude, the Oscars and Beaver Sausage

The weekend just needs to freshen up for a second.

Thursday
Buying Citronelle’s Wine Cellar
CIT DOWN

Buying Citronelle’s Wine Cellar

Since Citronelle closed, it’s been tough to find lobster and poached eggs disguised as caviar in this town. Too bad. But at least you can get the wines you might have paired them with. Schneider’s has scooped up the restaurant’s whole 4,000-bottle collection. You’re going to need a sommelier at home.

An Entire Night of Lebowski-isms
OVER THE LINE

An Entire Night of Lebowski-isms

It’s an entire movie theater gone Dude. Think Dude-themed playlists, Dude-themed cocktails (so, White Russians), Lebowski trivia and costume contests. Oh yeah, then they’ll show the movie. Then you’ll probably hit a bowling alley.

Sunday
Bottomless Sangria for the Oscars
ROJO CARPET

Bottomless Sangria for the Oscars

No, Javier Bardem is not up for any Oscars this year. Might as well do them Spanish-style anyway. You know, because of the unlimited tapas like lamb meatballs, mussels and churros, and bottomless sangria, beer and cava at Boqueria. It’s your own lifetime achievement award.

Mar 2, 7pm-midnight, $45, Boqueria, 1837 M St NW, reserve at 202-558-9545

Monday
Beaver and Muskrat: Now on the Menu
LEAVE IT TO BEAVER

Beaver and Muskrat: Now on the Menu

You’ve tried ostrich. You’ve had rattlesnake. Now it’s time for some small, woodland varmints. Rocklands kicks off its annual Grills Gone Wild week on Monday, which means beaver-sausage sandwiches; grilled lizards, gizzards and hearts; and muskrat Brunswick stew. Just like Mom used to make.

Mar 3-8, Rocklands, 2418 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-333-2558, and other area locations

Beyond
Like St. Patrick’s Day in Kentucky
ST. PAPPY’S DAY

Like St. Patrick’s Day in Kentucky

This St. Patrick’s Day, you’re planning to drink whiskey. That’s a given. But maybe not five vintages of Pappy Van Winkle, each paired with a course in Bourbon Steak’s private dining room. Authentically Irish, no. An upgrade from green beer, yes.

Taking reservations now for Mar 17, 6pm, $300, Bourbon Steak at Four Seasons, 2800 Pennsylvania Ave NW, reserve at 202-944-2026
