Your Perks: 1) A concentrated blend of electrolytes that cures hangovers. This is important. 2) A handheld, portable espresso machine that requires zero electricity. 3) A build-your-own Bellini kit including four bottles of Collalbrigo prosecco, the same brand that was used in the original Bellini. Your brunch just got historical.
Things to do for July 03, 2014
Fried Chicken, Tiki Cocktails and a Big Maze
Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early weekend...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
