Your Perks: 1) Tom Ford sunglasses at half off. What? How? Don’t you worry your pretty little head. 2) A flying palm-size HD-camera drone. Huge for your Vine game. 3) A vintage Rolex. A vintage Omega Seamaster 120. A vintage Cartier watch. A vintage... well, you get the idea.
Things to do for April 09, 2015
Cosmonauts, Baseball Gloves and Rose’s Luxury
The weekend gets by on pitching and defense.
DC’s Most Famous Burger Returns
By now, you may have heard: Frank Ruta, formerly of the White House and the lamentably departed Palena, has resurfaced at the Capella hotel. Now, so has his burger. Aka the apotheosis of high-fat Virginia beef, cheese, bun and homemade mayo. You’ll need a napkin. But it’s a nice napkin.
Knocking Off 50% at Jack Wills
If yesterday was good for something, it was for proving you might still need a rain jacket. Or an insulated vest. Or a V-neck sweater. Or... well, lots of stuff that preppy British outfitter Jack Wills now has for up to 50% off.
Shinola Gets All Baseball Happy
There is no Nats home game on Saturday. But if you’ve got the fever, there’s always... the Shinola shop on 14th. See, the bike-and-watch guys are serving up gratis hot dogs, popcorn and cola. And showing off their new line of balls, bats and gloves.
A Great Excuse to Drink Vodka
This event is all about Russians. No, not the Putin kind. The Yuri Gagarin kind, he of the first manned spaceflight. At this annual party in his honor, expect a moon bounce, space-themed burlesque, live music and dancing. We know: we had you at space-themed burlesque.
This will make scoring good Rolling Stones tickets look like child’s play. The rooftop at Rose’s Luxury—private, family-style service for eight to 10, you’ll recall, plus the only way you can get a reservation there—is back on May 1. And they begin taking reservations on Monday. Start training your finger to hit “refresh” rapidly.
