Negroni Slushies, New Gelato and Eating in Baltimore

Keep your friends close, but your weekends closer.

Thursday
Negronis in Slushy Form. Finally.
SLUSH FUN

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.

Available now, $14, Fiola Mare, 3050 K St NW, 202-628-0065

Saturday
A New Reason to Be in Baltimore
LUCKY CHARM CITY

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.

Sunday
It’s Called a Hangover Brunch, So...
BRUNCHING

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.

Monday
There’s a Beer Garden in Glover Park
GARDEN PARTY

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.

Opens Jun 30, Glover Park Beer Garden at the Savoy Suites Hotel, 2505 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-904-0483

Tuesday
Prediction: More Gelato on 14th Street
DOLCEZZA VITA

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.

Opens Jul 1, Dolcezza, 1418 14th St NW, 202-817-3900
