Things to do for March 06, 2014

The Weekender

Suits from Vancouver, Whiskey from Ireland, Bassists from Seattle

The weekend comes in like a lion.

Thursday
Traveling Tailors = Custom Suits
WELL SUITED

Traveling Tailors = Custom Suits

Good news: by the time spring’s here, you can have new suits. The Vancouver-based tailors behind Indochino are back for 11 days, measuring you up for their new season’s suits and shirts, while you customize 20-odd options like lapels, lining and monogram. So if you want to change your name, now’s the time.

Saturday
Walking in Search of Irish Whiskey
PRE–ST. PAT’S

Walking in Search of Irish Whiskey

A leisurely afternoon stroll around Dupont Circle. Sounds great. Especially when you’re stopping off at eight bars for eight different tastes of Irish whiskey. Start off at James Hoban’s, then proceed at your own pace all afternoon and evening. Pro tip: have a big lunch.

Sunday
Krist Novoselic in Takoma Park
KRIST KROSS

Krist Novoselic in Takoma Park

Republic in Takoma Park is kicking off its live music programming on Sunday. Check out their late-night menu of duck confit Cubanos and Johnny Cash–themed drinks while you take in the first night’s music, with Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic in the house, there to support the FairVote nonprofit.

Mar 9, 7:30pm, Republic, 6939 Laurel Ave, Takoma Park, MD, 301-270-3000

Monday
A Table Tennis Tourney to Win
PING ME

A Table Tennis Tourney to Win

It’s time to get your paddle out of the closet again. Yup, the one you call “Wonderboy.” Later this month, UHall is hosting a ping-pong tournament for Dave Eggers’s 826DC charity. And every Monday till then, you can show up to practice at Comet Ping Pong. And eat pizza.

Beyond
A Restaurant Preview Inside a Bar
ZERO HOUR

A Restaurant Preview Inside a Bar

A couple veteran chefs from top kitchens in New York and London are opening a restaurant here called Zero Degrees Zero Minutes. What they don’t have yet: a restaurant. So they’re popping up at Darnell’s and turning out six courses of razor clams, aged beef and black-tea ice cream. Which goes well with coffee.
