Things to do for September 12, 2014
Donuts, Bagels and Things Without Holes
Your sweetness is the weekend’s weakness.
A Donut-and-Coffee Bulletin
Good news on the caffeine-and-carbs front, no matter what neighborhood you happen to be waking up in. First, District Doughnut has gone from soft-open to... hard-open. Second, an Adams Morgan furniture shop is now hosting a coffee-and-pastry pop-up by Café Diem. Be careful, the coffee’s hot.
Taste of Georgetown Is Back
Here are a few stats about the new-and-improved Taste of Georgetown:
2: City blocks it spans.
35-plus: Restaurant tasting stations.
3: Live bands.
30: Beers available in the Wine & Beer Pavilion.
4: Approximate weight, in pounds, of the cupcakes being used for the cupcake-eating contest.
Because that’s fun.
There will be plenty of other Saturdays full of college football. So sacrifice one in the service of 275 beers at this year’s Snallygaster festival, many of them rare or even one-offs. Also expect the usual complement of food trucks, oysters and donuts. Surely you can find a beer to pair with them.
A Bagel Pop-Up in a Bar
We wouldn’t want to tempt you to hang out in a bar all day. But when said bar serves bagels, well... it’s tempting. Bullfrog Bagels, the local baker that made waves during its recent pop-ups on 14th Street, is settling down at Star & Shamrock on H Street. Just find something to do between last call and 7am.
A Richmond Supper Club Lands in DC
There’s this secret supper club out of Richmond. It’s now here. You sign up ahead of time. Then you’ll get an email with details about upcoming dinners (except for the locations, naturally). First 25 to 40 people responding are in for five to seven courses with drink pairings. That is so Richmond.
