Your Perks: 1) A curated selection of the 20th century’s most iconic timepieces. And by that we mean Rolex, Cartier and the like. 2) A personally engraved bottle of Kentucky bourbon. “Happy Father’s Day” —You. 3) Enough Hugo Boss polos to kill a man. Kidding. Polos are generally nonviolent.
Things to do for June 04, 2015
Disco Fries, Beer Brunches and Cary Grant
The weekend is in need of a good hammock.
Sally’s Middle Name Lands on H Street
No shortage of casual meetup spots on H Street. Well, here’s another in the former Pizza Parts & Service space. Expect subway tile, a wall-size chalkboard and tables packed in tight. On your plate: ever-changing stuff like porchetta and housemade cookies-and-cream ice cream. Okay, not on the same plate.
Dinosaurs or Cary Grant: Your Choice
Union Market’s Drive-In Series renews tomorrow night with Jurassic Park on screen and carhop service from DC Rollergirls. Then the Occidental kicks off a Cary Grant patio film fest on Saturday with Arsenic and Old Lace. You’ll get three courses. And probably see some nice suits.
Brunch in the Morning, Brunch at Night
You can hang out after Savor tomorrow night at City Tap House, which is rolling out brunch stuff like salmon hash, along with Ithaca beers. And once that digests, head to Birch & Barley in the morning for their five-course Brewer’s Brunch, with red velvet pancakes, donuts... and beer pairings.
Here, Smoking Is Still Cool
May we suggest a road trip for some country, bluesy music while you sample some new BBQ. Smokehouse Live is now fully operational in Leesburg, from vets of Hill Country and Carmine’s. Which means all manner of hickory-smoked meat, plus a live venue for 250 people. 250 very full people.
Graffiato Goes Boardwalk
For $50 in fake money, you can buy Boardwalk. For $50 in real money, you can buy four or five dishes from Mike Isabella’s boardwalk-inspired Jersey Shore menu—things like disco fries, linguine with clam sauce, fried zeppole and watermelon margaritas. Fake tan not required.
