The Weekender

Fried Chicken, Tiki Cocktails and a Big Maze

Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early weekend...

Thursday
Sure, You’ll Have a Tiki Cocktail
RUM’S THE WORD

Sure, You’ll Have a Tiki Cocktail

Tiki alert: Restaurant Eve mixologist Todd Thrasher has created 10 tiki cocktails for the Majestic in Alexandria. This includes the double rum Chief Lapu Lapu, which is big enough for four and arrives in a giant volcano-shaped glass. Lei not included.

Available through the summer, $10-$24, The Majestic, 911 King St, Alexandria, VA, 703-837-9117

Cheesy Ice Cream Sandwiches Here
SAY CHEESE

Cheesy Ice Cream Sandwiches Here

Grilled cheese sandwiches aren’t really a summer food. Unless you swap out the melted cheddar for cream cheese ice cream. That’s what the folks at GCDC have done, creating flavors like chocolate-coffee-Grand-Marnier and apple-bourbon-caramel. So cheese, booze and ice cream. Well played, GCDC.

Available through the summer, 4-9pm, $7, GCDC, 1730 Pennsylvania Ave NW, 202-393-4232

Fried Chicken. Donuts. ’Merica.
FREEDOM FRIES

Fried Chicken. Donuts. ’Merica.

Fried chicken. The ultimate Fourth of July picnic food. And GBD is preparing it so you don’t have to. Their bucket includes half a fried chicken, two sides—like spicy pimento mac and cheese and roasted-garlic mashed potatoes—and two donuts. Maybe share it with someone.

Order one day in advance, $25, GBD, 1323 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-524-5210

Friday
Hey, the World Cup Is Still Going On
BRIX KICKS

Hey, the World Cup Is Still Going On

You just signed a petition to rename Reagan National Airport after Tim Howard. But more important things deserve your attention right now, namely the remaining World Cup games. Brixton will be showing every single one, along with $5 drafts. No Belgians allowed. We kid, we kid.

Brixton, 901 U St NW, 202-560-5045

Navigating a Giant Maze in a Museum
A-MAZE-ING

Navigating a Giant Maze in a Museum

Remember Labyrinth? David Bowie wearing lots of mascara and a sequined jacket. Yeah, this is nothing like that. It’s a two-story-high, maple-plywood-walled, 60-by-60-foot maze that supposedly takes a half hour to navigate. Which means you can listen to “Starman” seven times.
