A Custom-Engraved Bottle of Dom

You love your mother. But do you love her enough to get her a bottle of vintage Dom Pérignon champagne or rosé that you’ve had custom engraved with a special, heartfelt message of your choosing for Mother’s Day? There’s only one answer.

A New &pizza, a New Jetties
ONCE MORE, WITH FEELING

A New &pizza, a New Jetties

If you’re in Dupont, you’ve now got pizza. Okay, more pizza. That’s where you’ll find &pizza’s 12th location, and it’s open until 4am on weekends. Seems late enough. Meanwhile, Penn Quarter’s now got itself a Jetties sandwich shop. And that Jetties has got itself a patio.

Now open, &pizza, 1215 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-450-4926; Jetties, 701 8th St NW, 202-347-6031

Saturday
Virginia’s New Outdoor Music Venue
BOWL SEASON

Virginia’s New Outdoor Music Venue

Music festivals. They’re great. But they’re a bit of a commitment. Well, here’s a new outdoor amphitheater on the farm that hosts Virginia’s burgeoning Lockn’ Festival every September. They kick things off with the Tedeschi Trucks Band this weekend. Get there early and call it a festival.

Opens Apr 18, 6pm, Blue Ridge Bowl, Lockn’ Farm, 1510 Diggs Mountain Rd, Arrington, VA, 800-594-8499

Drinks. Donuts. Disco. Done.
G MEN

Drinks. Donuts. Disco. Done.

On one end of the spectrum: a party at GBD where they’ll be debuting 13 new drinks, a new pineapple donut and drink/donut pairings, along with a DJ spinning disco tunes all night. On the other end of the spectrum: a sharp stick in the eye.

Apr 18, 9pm-close, no cover, GBD, 1323 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-524-5210

Sunday
Coffee. On Tap. With Nitrogen.
NIT’ MOVES

Coffee. On Tap. With Nitrogen.

Start with a whole keg of cold-brew coffee. So far, so good. Then hook it up to a tap that infuses it with nitrogen gas for a creamy head, not unlike a certain beer. You’ll find this at Dolcezza’s newest location at CityCenter this weekend. Pair it with some gelato.

Opens Apr 19, nitro coffee $5.50, Dolcezza, 904 Palmer Alley NW, 202-733-2879

Monday
The Return of Room 11’s Choco Taco
MUNCHIES

The Return of Room 11’s Choco Taco

Yes, 4/20 is coming up. And yes, we just legalized it. So, yes, a chef-made choco taco may be in order. You’ll find them at Room 11—they’ve got a chocolate-peanut-butter ice cream taco and a cookie-dough cheesecake taco. Also: chocolate-covered crinkle-cut chips. Guess they’re an appetizer.

Available Apr 20, 8am till they run out, Room 11, 3234 11th St NW, 202-332-3234
