Things to do for July 23, 2015

The Weekender

Tiki Bars. Brewery Bars. Donut-Shop Bars.

What goes up must come weekend.

Thursday
The TaKorean Takeover Continues
TAK ON ME

The TaKorean Takeover Continues

You’ve gotten TaKorean bossam with kimchi from a truck. You’ve gotten it at the Yards pre-baseball. You’ve gotten it at Union Market. Now, you’re getting it for a quick downtown lunch meeting right by the National Press Club. Reporters love tacos.

Friday
A Bar in a Donut Shop. And a Tiki Bar.
OH CAPTAIN

A Bar in a Donut Shop. And a Tiki Bar.

What do donut shops and whiskey bars have in common? Here, they both have new bars. Inside Sugar Shack Donuts in Old Town, you’ll encounter Captain Gregory’s, a nautically themed cocktail bar with plenty of rum. Meanwhile, Jack Rose opens its tiki bar, with drinks in mugs and wood-grilled tacos.

Saturday
30% Off Limited-Run Shirts and Blazers
SALE-ING

30% Off Limited-Run Shirts and Blazers

Here’s your last chance to get limited-run cotton blazers, and perfect-for-summer shirts in pink poplin, lightweight denim and checked gingham, from the local guys at Hugh & Crye. Better yet, you can knock 30% off if you know the code. (Pause for effect.) Okay, the code is below.

Ongoing, Hugh & Crye, use code “SUMMERSALE” for 30% off

The Best Cup Since Anna Kendrick’s
BOTTOMS UP

The Best Cup Since Anna Kendrick’s

Saturday will be a big day. First head to New Columbia for the release of their first summer cup, made with their Green Hat Navy Strength Gin and vermouth. Think of it like a Pimm’s, but not. Then proceed to One Eight Distilling for their first Tennessee-style whiskey alongside biscuits from Mason Dixie.

Sunday
A Summer Party. At a Brewery.
SEEING STARS

A Summer Party. At a Brewery.

We’d encourage you to hang out at a brewery anytime, really. But especially on Sunday. For its annual summer party, 3 Stars is inviting bands, DJs, local distillers, bakers and sandwich makers. Yes, they’ll be tapping rare and one-off beers. Sandwich-friendly, we’re sure.
