Things to do for June 04, 2014

The Weekender

Oysters and Steak, Pretzels and Gin

The weekend is an excellent listener.

Wednesday
Sangria. Beer. Patio.
A DICKSON MOVE

Sangria. Beer. Patio.

On Dickson’s new patio, you’ll find brick, concrete and flowers. Also: happy hour deals every day like $6 jars of sangria and $5 wines and beers. Oh, and should you get a happy hour thunderstorm: it’s covered. Consider it a summer insurance policy.

Soft Pretzels and Gin. At Last.
PRETZEL LOGIC

Soft Pretzels and Gin. At Last.

Maybe you’ve heard about the amazing Pretzel Bakery on the Hill. And maybe you can’t get over there during their daytime business hours. Here to help: gin. Or specifically, the gin-centric cocktail bar at Wisdom, now selling the same pretzels every night. Yes, they’ll probably make you thirsty.

Available nightly, two for $5, Wisdom, 1432 Pennsylvania Ave SE, 202-543-2323

A New Way Station for Oysters and Steaks
SURF AND TURF

A New Way Station for Oysters and Steaks

You remember the Gryphon, the short-lived sports bar below Dupont. Or maybe you don’t, given the short-lived thing. Well, they’ve retooled a bit. Out: basketball and wings. In: five kinds of oysters, a lobster cocktail and five kinds of dry-aged steaks for two. And chili cheese fries. Just kidding.

Friday
Your Own Catered TV Room
GLUED TO THE TV

Your Own Catered TV Room

A private room. Beanbag chairs. Bottomless popcorn and beer buckets. Sounds like a great spot to catch up on your favorite shows. And that’s the idea. The Hotel Rouge is turning its event spaces into “binge-watching” spaces. Don’t forget to drink for every Roger Sterling one-liner.

Available starting Jun 6, $350 and up, Hotel Rouge, 1315 16th St NW, reserve at 202-939-6412 or here

Sunday
Sammie and a Shandy at Cashion’s
CASH COW

Sammie and a Shandy at Cashion’s

Sunday afternoon. You probably don’t want to cook. And you probably want to hang out on another patio. Enter Cashion’s, which is rolling out five sandwiches—bison burger, lamb barbacoa, shrimp/scallop burger and sloppy joe—along with potatoes and a shandy for $15. Nice work, Cashion’s.
