The weekend knows Bryce Harper.

Eating Biscuits All the Time

Eating Biscuits All the Time

Anywhere you go, all of a sudden, it’s biscuits. Like... Del Ray. Here’s an outfit called Stomping Ground. They only serve breakfast and lunch. But biscuits all the time. Plus hand pies, scones, coffee cake and other buttery things that can be improved only by spreading more butter on them.

Now open, Stomping Ground, 2309 Mt. Vernon Ave, Alexandria, VA, 703-548-1970

Your Food Boat Is Now a Beer Boat

Your Food Boat Is Now a Beer Boat

It’s that time of year again. The time when you rent a vessel that floats. Head out to the middle of the river. And get hungry. And thirsty. Enter Nauti Foods, the Potomac’s first food boat, which this year has added beer taps to its lineup of gelato and bagels. Just don’t paddle under the influence.

Patty Boom Boom Lives. Kind Of.

Patty Boom Boom Lives. Kind Of.

Think of this as Patty Boom Boom in exile. And outdoors. All evening, DJs from the dearly departed reggae/dubstep club will take over the upstairs deck at Marvin, while you sip rum punch and eat their also dearly departed spicy beef patties.

May 23, 4-10pm, Marvin, 2007 14th St NW, 202-797-7171

10 Floors Up: Your Rooftop Pool

10 Floors Up: Your Rooftop Pool

You’ve got a couple options here as the Embassy Row Hotel opens its 10th-floor pool for the season:

1) Head up around happy hour. Order some Meatball Wellington and Green Hat mules. And don’t fall in.
2) Buy a day pass and spend the whole afternoon up there. Order some of that same stuff. Fall in over and over.

Rooftop opens May 24, $25/day or no cost after 5pm, The Embassy Row Hotel, 2015 Massachusetts Ave NW, 202-265-1600

An Oyster Fest + A Crawfish Boil

An Oyster Fest + A Crawfish Boil

It’s a holiday. So apparently you’re eating shellfish. Either at City Tap House, which is hosting its first annual Shuck Fest, with oyster beers, cucumber-vodka shooters and all kinds of oysters. Or at Saint-Ex, which is throwing a bottomless crawfish boil, with buckets of beer. There’s really not a wrong choice.

May 25, 2-6pm, no cost to enter, City Tap House, 901 9th St NW, 202-644-9433; noon, $50, Cafe Saint-Ex, 1847 14th St NW, 202-265-7839
