Things to do for November 20, 2014

The Weekender

Baltimore Beer, Pennsylvania Rye and French Wine

The weekend will be consulting its Thanksgiving flowchart.

Thursday
DJs, Dancing and Bottomless Beaujolais
BEAU KNOWS

DJs, Dancing and Bottomless Beaujolais

The problem with wine tastings is they’re usually... not like this. Malmaison is throwing a Beaujolais Nouveau release party, complete with an open wine bar, small bites and dancing to a DJ playing French music. Try to request “Zou Bisou Bisou.”

Saturday
An Afternoon in Baltimore Breweries
CHARMING

An Afternoon in Baltimore Breweries

It’s not every weekend that you can burn a day going to Baltimore and hanging out in its breweries. This is that weekend. Here’s a new outfit that transports you to Heavy Seas, Union and the Brewer’s Art for tours, tastings and a few giveaways. And get this: the bus has dedicated growler storage space.

Sunday
Pennsylvania Brunch at Second State
WAIT A SECOND

Pennsylvania Brunch at Second State

Kale Bloody Marys. Duck hash. Scotch eggs wrapped in breakfast sausage. That’s what you’ll get at Second State’s new Sunday brunch. And it’s civilized, dammit. Wear a dress or a jacket and get a gratis glass of bubbly or a shot of Pennsylvania rye. Wear a jacket over a dress and who knows...

Monday
Monday Night Motown on 14th Street
BIG DEN

Monday Night Motown on 14th Street

If you really have a hankering for some Motown on a Monday night, well, there’s Spotify. Or for a more social option: Den of Thieves, which is now open seven nights. Each night, you’ll find special cocktails, mulled wine and hot chocolate for $5, and theme nights like Motown Mondays. Let’s get it on.

Now open seven nights, Den of Thieves, 2005 14th St NW, 202-747-2377

Next Thursday
These People Will Fry Your Turkey
TURNKEY TURKEY

These People Will Fry Your Turkey

If you’re in charge of the turkey next week, good news: you can outsource the hard part. Show up with a thawed, eight- to 10-pound turkey at Medium Rare on Capitol Hill, and they’ll deep-fry it for you at no charge. Spend the time sipping some gratis coffee and hot cider. Or soliciting yam recipes. Whichever.

Nov 27, 11am-2pm, Medium Rare, 515 8th St SE, 202-601-7136
