Your Perks: 1) The softest, most water-resistant leather bags out there—if there’s a classier way to carry your stuff to the beach, we don’t know it. 2) A one-month supply of memory-enhancing “genius pills.” 3) Your very own pet jellyfish and LED-lit aquarium. Start thinking of jellyfish names.
Things to do for June 26, 2014
Negroni Slushies, New Gelato and Eating in Baltimore
Keep your friends close, but your weekends closer.
Negronis in Slushy Form. Finally.
If you’ve ever stared at a Slurpee machine and thought, “I wish it was full of Negronis,” good news: frozen Negronis are now on tap at Fiola Mare on the Georgetown waterfront. Unfortunately, still not available in Big Gulp size.
A New Reason to Be in Baltimore
Bryan Voltaggio is opening a second Aggio. The twist: this one’s in Baltimore. Expect Nonna-style spaghetti and meatballs and fancier stuff like ricotta gnocchi with oxtail ragù and bitter chocolate. But probably not Omar from The Wire. Because he died. And he’s a fictional character.
It’s Called a Hangover Brunch, So...
If you’re planning on drinking Saturday night, first of all: water. Second of all: go to Dino’s Grotto on Sunday for a Hangover Brunch. It includes a Hair of the Dog cocktail (gin, egg, sriracha, bitters), a beer and a main dish like prosciutto eggs benedict. Also: unlimited water.
There’s a Beer Garden in Glover Park
Glover Park: not really a beer garden hotbed. But starting Monday, there’ll be one on a huge deck outside the Savoy Suites Hotel. With 15 bottled beers, five drafts, brats and burgers. Plus two giant TVs. In case drinking beer outside and watching the World Cup interests you.
Prediction: More Gelato on 14th Street
July is a hot month. So 14th Street is responding by getting a Dolcezza gelateria. You’ll run into all their normal artisanal gelatos here, plus new items like a Fruity Pebbles sundae, made with vanilla gelato, Marcona almonds and candied lemon peels. Yes, they’ll also have A/C.
