Things to do for May 15, 2014
All Weekend: New Burgers and Bottomless Brunch
Slow and steady wins the weekend.
Pre-Barhopping Fish Sandwiches in Shaw
Out of College Park, here’s Fishnet, a fish sandwich spot done up in blue and brick. You’ll pick your fish (yellowfin, catfish, etc.), pick your sauce (Turkish tartar, spicy aioli, etc.) and pick your beer from the eight taps. You can do this.
Gratis Beer at the Bowling Alley
Let’s take this in reverse order: you’ll celebrate your many strikes and spares. You’ll put on bowling shoes. You’ll think bowling is suddenly a good idea. You’ll hit up today’s happy hour, where the 3 Stars guys are pouring gratis tastes at Pinstripes. You’ll read this.
New Burgers. And Dogs. And Fries.
It’s called City Burger. And it’s not in the city. But if you’re up Bethesda-way, you’ll want to check out this small, rustic-looking shop for the griddled Angus burgers, dogs and half-smokes, and The Presley milkshake, with peanut butter, caramelized banana and bacon. But no amphetamines.
Bottomless Bloodys... and Meat
You’ve seen bottomless Bloody Mary bars. And they’ve got one at Toro Toro’s new brunch, complete with all manner of hot sauces. You may not have seen a brunch where people walk around carving meat—chorizo sausage, steak and achiote chicken—onto your plate. Which also has no bottom.
A Rooftop Pool for Your Summer Pleasure
Monday. A good day to call in sick. And if you have to be sick, might as well be on a rooftop. The Liaison is throwing open its 50-foot rooftop pool for the season again, so grab a day pass and get a bucket of beers, or just show up for the no-cover happy hour. But make sure your colleagues aren’t going.
