Things to do for May 08, 2014
It’s a Beer and Lobster Roll Weekend
The weekend likes to move it, move it.
The Savor beer fest rolls into town this week. But if you don’t have tickets, not to worry: you can still find more beer than usual around town. Like tonight, when DC Brau unveils its Daughters of Poseidon oyster IPA, with dollar oysters on the patio all night.
Lobster Rolls Come to Dupont
This just in: Dupont Circle is no longer a lobster-roll-free zone. Phew. Here’s this place, Willie T’s Lobster Shack, dishing out mayo-laden crustaceans, along with shrimp rolls, crab-cake rolls and clam chowder. Yellow slicker: optional.
A Whole Weekend of Hot-Tubbing
You may have big plans this weekend. Then again, you may just be sitting in a hot tub. The folks at Hot Tub Heaven (yup, that’s what it’s called) are knocking $100 off their hot-tub-equipped cabins near the Shenandoah this weekend. Remember, you’ll start to pickle after too long.
Unlimited Eating on Rose’s Rooftop
Finally, a table at Rose’s Luxury that you can reserve. Better yet: it’s on the rooftop, and it’s yours for the night for eight to 10 people. Better still: they’ll keep cooking for you—with on-menu and off-menu dishes—until you say when. But probably not until breakfast.
Here’s how this is going to go down: you’re going to drive to West Virginia. You’ll put on a wetsuit. And then hit seven miles of Class III+ rapids, bolstered by a dam release upstream on the North Branch of the Potomac. You may even get to do some cliff diving.
