The Weekender

Oysters, Pig’s Heads and Buddha: It’s Your Weekend

The weekend: now with more daylight.

Thursday
The Next Move Baltimore Is Here
CHARMING

The Next Move Baltimore Is Here

This concerns blue crab. Berger cookies. And, okay, beer. And where to get them next time you find yourself in Baltimore. Just call up this latest iteration of UrbanDaddy’s free, award-winning mobile app, tell it who you’re with and what you’re after, and—just like in DC—it’ll give you your next move.

Red Apron Doubles Down on Meat
PARTISANSHIP

Red Apron Doubles Down on Meat

That didn’t take long: the Partisan, the new restaurant extension of the flagship Red Apron Butcher, is already open. You’ll find 30 kinds of charcuterie, plenty of sour ales and four spirits on draft. In case you need a little extra nerve to try the roasted pig’s head.

Buying the Contents of Buddha Bar
THIS BUDDHA’S FOR YOU

Buying the Contents of Buddha Bar

So, Buddha Bar. That didn’t go over so well. But you’re here to pick up the pieces. Literally. They’re auctioning the whole place off, from tables to speakers to kitchen gear to... the giant gold Buddha statue. It’ll look great in the master bathroom.

Inspection Mar 13, through 4pm; auction Mar 14, 2:07pm; Buddha Bar Auction, 455 Massachusetts Ave NW

Saturday
Unlimited Oysters. Because Why Not...
AW SHUCKS

Unlimited Oysters. Because Why Not...

Okay. So it’s stupid cold again today. Not to worry. By Saturday, it’ll be warm enough for oysters on a patio. The K Street Belgian spot is shucking all-you-can-eat local oysters, along with $4 Stone Smoked Porter and Cali-Belgique IPA beer. You can become the Joey Chestnut of oysters.

Mar 15, noon-4pm, $25, Brasserie Beck, 1101 K St NW, reserve at 202-408-1717

A St. Pat’s Trial Run at Dubliner
SLÁINTE

A St. Pat’s Trial Run at Dubliner

St. Patrick’s Day is on a Monday this year. Not ideal. Also not insurmountable. The Dubliner is getting things started two days early, with “St. Practice Day,” also known as two stages of live music and four bars, including one under a pop-up tent. Yes, they all have whiskey.

Sunday
Waking Up Early to Watch Soccer
THE OTHER SUPER SUNDAY

Waking Up Early to Watch Soccer

Might as well go to a bar at 9:30am. Because they’ve got the biggest English Premier League matches on 23 HD screens. Also because it’s a bar, with $18 beer buckets and pitchers, and two-for-one Bloodys and mimosas. Wayne Rooney would approve.
