An Old Bay–Donut Chicken Sandwich

Starting today, Astro is serving a fried chicken breast on an Old Bay donut. That is, with Old Bay in the dough as well as dusted on top. And you can cover it with dressings like sriracha buffalo or ranch. Or just more Old Bay.

Where Art Meets Pancakes

Picture an art show with 50 emerging artists. Now picture live body painting, DJs and an all-you-can-eat pancake bar. Now picture it for six hours. Congratulations, you’ve just pictured Penn Social tonight.

Jul 24, 8pm-2am, Penn Social, 801 E St NW, 202-697-4900

Saturday
Your H Street Pedicab Awaits
LET’S GO TO PED

Your H Street Pedicab Awaits

A streetcar will soon run up and down H Street NE. But for now, an army of pedicabs will have to suffice. On Saturday afternoon, you can hop a gratis ride anywhere between Union Station and Maryland Avenue. Feel free to call them your “designated pedicabs.”

Going for Bocce Glory. At the Beach.
BOCCE OPERATION

Going for Bocce Glory. At the Beach.

Like bocce? And/or drinking in the daytime? Then check this out: in August, bocce-ists from up and down the East Coast will be traveling to Delaware for an epic, daylong throwdown in view of the ocean. If you lose early, there’s always live music and beer. And the beach.

Aug 9, 11am-8pm, $40/person, BocceFest, 49 Cape Henlopen Dr, Lewes, DE, register here

What Else Is New
Shawarma Here, Prosciutto There
AND NOW...

Shawarma Here, Prosciutto There

If you’re on H Street and need a snack: Micho’s Lebanese Grill is turning out shawarma and falafel drizzled with garlic sauce.
If you’re near Dupont and need a snack: Italian spot La Tomate has added a more casual, Euro-country-looking café, sporting a pastry-heavy breakfast and an all-day prosciutto-and-mozz bar.
