The Weekender

Pretzels, Tiki Drinks. Charcuterie. This Could Work.

The weekend: now football-free.

Thursday
So Many Pretzels. Covered in Candy.
HOT RODS

So Many Pretzels. Covered in Candy.

So there’s this outfit called Fatty Sundays that specializes in dipping pretzel rods in chocolate and candy. It should not surprise you that they’re from Brooklyn. Anyway, they’re popping up at Union Market to provide you with a pre-Valentine’s source of birthday-cake-covered pretzels and chocolate-dipped strawberry licorice. Because you were looking for one.

This Supper Club Could Get Interesting
FIRESIDE CHATS

This Supper Club Could Get Interesting

You’ve got a couple ways to go with the Ritz Georgetown’s fireside communal table this month. A) Just buy the whole thing for eight of you. B) Go with a friend and take your chances. Who knows, you might meet somebody. But you’ll definitely have stuff like short ribs and pickle-brined fried chicken, with wine and cocktail pairings.

Feb 6, 13, 14, 20 and 27, seatings at 7 and 9pm, $125, Cupid’s Communal Table at The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, 3100 South St NW, reserve at 202-912-4146

Regarding Your Valentine List...
CUPIDITY

Regarding Your Valentine List...

Only nine shopping days left until Valentine’s Day. But only three days left until this—a confab of 18 local artisans spread out over Derek Brown’s three bars on 7th Street. Pick up a DC flag mug, small-batch tonics and some chocolates... or just have a drink and watch other people do that.

The Passenger Returns. Kind Of.
THIS TOO SHALL PASS

The Passenger Returns. Kind Of.

That didn’t take long. The Passenger’s only been gone five weeks, and here it is again. Well, in spirit anyway, down the street at Bar 7. Expect some of the same bartenders, live-band karaoke and tiki cocktails. You can still find your way home exactly as you used to.

Feb 8, 7pm-1am, Bar 7, 1015 1/2 7th St NW, 202-347-4343

Monday
A Charcuterie Shop Is Reborn
MEAT DEPT.

A Charcuterie Shop Is Reborn

Urban Butcher. It’s a coffee shop. It’s a bar. It’s a small-plates restaurant. It’s a butcher that cures its own stuff in-house. It’s... open again, after a fire struck last year. Expect more of the same meats, only older, as some of the sausages and hams have now gotten an extra few months of unexpected aging.

Reopens Feb 9, 5pm, Urban Butcher, 8226 Georgia Ave, Silver Spring, MD, 301-585-5800
