Singapore Slings, Pizza and East Coast Punk

Paint the town weekend.

Thursday
&Pizza Comes to Penn Quarter
AMPERSAND

&Pizza Comes to Penn Quarter

You can now get a Farmer’s Daughter in Penn Quarter. Also a Kiss & Fire and a Jenny. Yup, there’s now an &Pizza, the conveyor-belt pizza micro chain, next to the Landmark E Street Cinema. And fittingly, it’s all done up with marquee lights and a Buster Keaton mural.

Now open, &Pizza, 1005 E St NW, 202-347-5056

A Whole Weekend of Documentaries
WHAT’S UP, DOC?

A Whole Weekend of Documentaries

The AFI Docs film fest is back downtown. This year, you can catch music docs on Elliott Smith and Glen Campbell, a doc on Boston mob boss Whitey Bulger, a look at the 1970s Knicks and an investigation into General Tso’s chicken. Important stuff, that last one.

A Happy Hour Ode to the Singapore Sling
SLING SHOT

A Happy Hour Ode to the Singapore Sling

If you’re reading this in downtown DC right now, you don’t have access to a beach (sorry). What you do have access to: $5 Singapore Slings on tap at the new Soi 38. While you’re at it, knock half off drafts and small plates like coconut-marinated pork belly. Now just hallucinate the beach.

Mon-Fri, 4:30-7pm, Soi 38, 2101 L St NW, 202-558-9215

Friday
DC-Made Ties at Hugh & Crye
TIE GUYS

DC-Made Ties at Hugh & Crye

Even in summer, sometimes you have to wear a tie. Maybe you even have one on now. But it could be cotton. And made in DC. The guys at Hugh & Crye have a new line of square-end, cotton ties hand-patterned and sewn right here. So they’re used to the humidity.

Saturday
East Coast Bands, on the Wall
BEST COAST

East Coast Bands, on the Wall

It’s festival season, but you still can’t see 80 East Coast punk and indie bands in the same place. Unless it’s on the wall at Georgetown record shop Hill & Dale. The new exhibit curates the work of 10 photographers, who’ve shot the likes of local bands Priests and the Dismemberment Plan.

Through Jul 13, Hill & Dale, 1054 31st St NW, 202-333-5012
