Your Perks: 1) A cutting-edge scale that measures your body mass index, fat ratio, muscle mass... and, oh, weight. 2) A pocket-friendly phone battery charger. Stocking-size, we might add. 3) All the Rolex and Cartier watches a person could want. In gifting terms, the showstopper.
Things to do for November 28, 2014
Oyster Shooters, Pinball and Fire Pits
The weekend is in the throes of gravy withdrawal.
Alton Lane, those suit makers with the futuristic body scanner, are throwing some deals your way for Black Friday. Like buy five shirts and get two free, 40% off overcoats if you get a suit, and all kinds of suit-and-shirt package deals. So yeah. Suits.
Discreet Dining in Georgetown
Good news if you’d rather not be discovered: the dark, romantic, you’d-never-know-it’s-there After Peacock Room has reopened in Georgetown. Expect heritage pork loin, macaron ice cream sandwiches... and a lot of people being sorta quiet.
Late-Night Oyster Shooters on H
Oyster shooters at 5pm: good idea. Oyster shooters at 11pm: great idea. Which is probably why DC Harvest is reprising its happy hour during the late-night hours every weekend. That means $4 Green Hat oyster shooters, $5 drafts, $6 rickeys and bar bites like lamb-sausage sliders and Old Bay popcorn.
Black Cat: Now a Pinball Venue
Black Cat has rolled in four new pinball machines to its front café, and you can test them out with some cash on the line, as they host a Sunday night tournament. The entry fee is waived if you’ve never played in a pinball tourney before. Or you’re just sandbagging everyone.
A Winter Bar in the West End
So winter’s come early. May as well embrace it. By drinking outside. A Bar, with its little outdoor enclave in the West End, is giving you blankets, make-your-own mulled cider and hot cocoa bars and DIY s’mores kits to roast over their fire pits. Note: get a seat by a fire pit.
