Your Perks: 1) A few great vintage Rolexes. The more, the merrier. 2) A mélange of bold button-ups to infuse your spring wardrobe with some color. You know, for spring. 3) Some classic-looking sunglasses and eyeglasses. Great if you’re blocking rays. Or fronting a band.
Things to do for May 14, 2015
Lobster Pop-Ups, Local Bourbon and Alfred Hitchcock
April showers bring May weekends.
Just So Much Ham
Your tolerance for ham is... well, it’s never been tested, really. Probably pretty high, though. Find out as the Birch & Barley/ChurchKey chefs roll out boards of four hams this week, including an 18-month, house-aged prosciutto. Yes, of course they’ll suggest beer pairings.
Lobsters and Burgers = All You Need
Soon, there will be a restaurant specializing in nothing but lobsters and burgers. Even sooner (like now), there is a pop-up at Prequel serving those very same things, only paired with cocktails, beer and wine. Clever, clever.
Normally, Congressional Cemetery closes by dusk. But not tomorrow, when you’ll bring food, drinks and a blanket, and take up a spot. Then you’ll be joined by Alfred Hitchcock and a legion of vicious birds. On a movie screen. Not in real life. Just in case that wasn’t clear.
It’s a beer fest with cocktails. No, it’s a wine fest with beer. No, it’s... something new, by the booze-focused minds behind Bluejacket, the Partisan and more. You’ll sample rare beer and wine while you eat doner kebabs and whole-smoked-hog tacos. Okay, so actually it’s a whole-smoked-hog-taco fest.
Someday you might face a weekend without new, locally produced whiskey. But it won’t be this one, because here comes One Eight Distilling’s first sherry-cask-aged bourbon, called Untitled No. 1. You can find it in flights and cocktails at Mockingbird Hill and Southern Efficiency. And sure, you can title it if you want.
