The Weekender

Wool Vests, Ramen and Other Stuff to Keep You Warm

The weekend comes in on time, on target and on budget.

Thursday
The Sandwich Your Super Bowl Needs
G FOR “GAME”

The Sandwich Your Super Bowl Needs

A four-hour football game demands something like a three-foot sandwich by Mike Isabella. Well, exactly like that. Take your pick from roasted turkey, spiced baby goat, chicken parm or the Italian Stallion, with Italian cold cuts, mozzarella and pickled eggplant. You never do the big game without pickled eggplant.

24: THE NEXT SEASON

Rogue 24 Switches It Up

We could use the word “fortnight” here. But we won’t. Rogue 24, which once served only epic, all-night feasts, is now rolling out a new three- and five-course menu every two weeks for the remainder of 2015. Chipped foie gras, toasted pierogies, lamb shoulder, you get it. On second thought... Fortnight.

Friday
Take Half Off Warm Stuff at Federal
A FEDERAL CASE

Take Half Off Warm Stuff at Federal

Ah, the vagaries of the fashion industry. It’s 36 degrees out, and all the warm stuff is on sale. Embrace it, starting at Federal on 14th Street, where they’re going 50% off on wool cargo pants, plaid scarves, varsity jackets and down vests. Oh, and some bathing suits, too. For your polar bear plunge.

Ongoing, Federal, 2216 14th St NW, 202-518-3375

Saturday
Santa Monica. Via Bethesda.
THE BEST COAST

Santa Monica. Via Bethesda.

Heading to Santa Monica this weekend sounds nice. Heading to Bethesda sounds less nice, but it’s not without its charms. Like the sushi/taco/steak-centric Summer House, an airy, Santa Monica–themed spot that’s just landed here. Up next: a companion pizzeria called Stella Barra. Yes, you can shout “Stella” if you’d like.

Next Sunday
Four Hours of Ramen and Dessert
RAM TOUGH

Four Hours of Ramen and Dessert

Next Sunday, your plans will be less obvious. Good thing half-a-dozen ramen chefs are cooking at Mess Hall, and that there’ll also be gelato and cocktails. Regular tickets are sold out, but the VIP tickets get you in an hour early and include a bag of samples. Good for accompanying hockey viewing.
