Thai. Korean. Dumplings. Weekend.

The weekend has a streetcar it would like to sell you.

Thursday
Sriracha Noodles, Coming Your Way...
Beau Better Blues

Sriracha Noodles, Coming Your Way...

Beau Thai in Shaw now has new digs down 7th Street. But that’s not the important part. The important part is they’ve now got a giant bar with seven local drafts and rare Thai spirits, and new menu items like noodles stir-fried in sriracha sauce. Hydrate appropriately.

Now open, Beau Thai, 1550 7th St NW, 202-536-5636

Korean Street Food, Now in AdMo
BUL SESSION

Korean Street Food, Now in AdMo

Korean street food from the folks behind Sakuramen. It’s about to become part of your Adams Morgan rotation. Think rice bowls, housemade kimchis and Hangover Soup with fish cakes. There’s no liquor license yet, so for now, just content yourself with kombucha. And maybe some fish-shaped waffles with ice cream for dessert.

Now open, Bul, 2431 18th St NW, 202-733-3921

Saturday

A New Spot to Watch Weekend Footie

Now open, The Pitch, 4015 Georgia Ave NW

SONG FOR THE DUMPLING

EatsPlace Turns Dumpling Depot

And now, for its next trick, pop-up shop EatsPlace is going all dumpling on you. Baba’s Dumplings, to be specific. They’ll be turning out meat and vegan dumplings, noodle soups and Rice Krispies treat ice cream sandwiches, plus bottling a line of bitters. No, they don’t go in your soup.

Honoring Elvis. With Burlesque.
A HUNK O’ BURNING LOVE

Honoring Elvis. With Burlesque.

Well, this has nearly become a tradition by now: Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club, which celebrates the King’s birthday through copious amounts of burlesque and vaudeville-esque “fight scenes.” Jumpsuit not required. But if you’ve got one...
