Your Perks: 1) A drone that fits in the palm of your hand. Which is a bad thing in no way. 2) Tom Ford sunglasses that’ll shield your eyes from other sunglasses that aren’t Tom Ford. And the sun, of course. 3) Underwear that’s way better than regular underwear. Thanks to science.
Things to do for July 30, 2015
A New Patio, Bottomless BBQ and Late-Night Burgers
August and Everything Weekend
Linen flatcaps. Cotton cadet caps. Straw fedoras. Those are but a few of the styles you’ll find for 50% off at Goorin Bros.’ summer sale. “I wish you had two of me.” —Your head
Colony Club Goes Alfresco
The only bad thing about Colony Club: you couldn’t take your scone/coffee/Belgian ale outside. Well, now you can, because their enclosed, covered back patio is open. And tomorrow, they’ll formally launch it with the Timber Pizza Co. truck, a DJ and drink specials. You still have to stay inside for ping-pong.
14th and U’s Giant Sidewalk Sale
You know the old adage: even if it’s 95 degrees out, at least you can take 20% off the store at Miss Pixie’s, check out a beer garden at Studio Theatre and snack on ice cream sandwiches at Cork Market at the annual MidCity Dog Days sale. Okay, so it’s a new adage.
A Burger Battle Royal at Daikaya
Lo, about 11pm, burgers seem like a good idea. Six of them, to be exact. So it’s a good thing Daikaya’s team of chefs is engaging in a late-night burger throwdown. You can get each of their entries for five bucks, alongside booze-filled milkshakes and pony beers. Everyone’s a winner.
Endless Barbecue and Beer. Okay.
At this fundraiser for Miriam’s Kitchen, you’ll get unlimited barbecue from Sloppy Mama’s and DCity Smokehouse, endless beer from DC Brau and milkshakes spiked by One Eight Distilling. Also: air-conditioning.
