Your Perks: 1) Clothing created by MIT grads that’s designed to keep you cool. 2) An umbrella that’s super-lightweight, wind-resistant and invaluable to you this spring. 3) A bottle of rosé from a renowned winemaker in the Côtes de Provence region of France... and five others just like it.
Things to do for May 07, 2015
Breakfast Pizza, Questlove and Free Falling
The weekend suddenly loves hockey.
Union Kitchen Has a Corner Grocery
It’s hard to find your local smoked peanut butter, your local pickles and your local sauerkraut in the same place. It’s okay. You don’t have to be angry anymore. Because here’s the first retail operation from the Union Kitchen folks, which also means sandwiches, coffee and fresh bread. Also local.
Beer plus Butter, to Your Door
You may know Smucker Farms on 14th for everything from dry-aged steaks to organic butter to mix-and-match six-packs of beer. Now know that you can get all of that delivered in about an hour, anywhere in Northwest DC. Even the butter.
Breakfast Pizzas. Other Pizzas, Too.
Go have some pizza for breakfast tomorrow. It’s got eggs, bacon and Italian cheeses. And it’s ready in a couple minutes. Oh, and it’s from the chef behind Pizzeria Paradiso. Yes, you can come back for lunch.
Climbing to 40 Feet. Then Jumping.
And for your next trick, you’ll climb up to a platform 40 feet in the air. And then just step off of it. Don’t worry: there’s a braking system that automatically controls your fall. Still, maybe wait an hour or so after that breakfast pizza.
Ways to make a wine festival more fun:
- Invite eight bands and DJs, including Trouble Funk and Questlove.
- Involve food vendors like Milk Cult, Timber Pizza and Ben’s Next Door.
- Do the whole thing outside.
- Once again: Questlove.
