The Weekender

Taprooms, Tasting Rooms and Lobsters

What weekend through yonder window breaks.

Thursday
60% Off Summer Stuff at Avenue Jack
SALE-ING

60% Off Summer Stuff at Avenue Jack

Boots. Wool. Whoa, not so fast. Not when Avenue Jack is unloading shorts, tees, swim trunks and summer shoes from the likes of Penguin, Ben Sherman and Lacoste. This world isn’t done with your skin just yet.

Through Sep 6, Avenue Jack, 1301 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-887-5225

Friday
Two New Beer Road Trips
BREWERY BULLETIN

Two New Beer Road Trips

Time to hit the road like Kerouac. Or Hunter S. Thompson. Okay, maybe not like that, but there will be beer involved. Because BadWolf, a formerly tiny operation, has now expanded to a huge warehouse. And then there’s Ornery, a brewery/taproom/pub due south in Woodbridge. Agreeable people are still welcome.

It’s a Cuban Rooftop Party
GLEAMING THE CUBA

It’s a Cuban Rooftop Party

We’ve got normal trade relations with Cuba again. And just like that, look, a rooftop party at Del Campo. They’re rolling out Hemingway daiquiris, Cubano sandwiches and ropa vieja over a salsa soundtrack. Afterward, head down to the patio for some late-night cigars. Tell them Hyman Roth sent you.

Sunday
Four Hours of BBQ, Oysters and Beer
HANK MY CHAIN

Four Hours of BBQ, Oysters and Beer

In four hours on Sunday, you could re-watch half of True Detective (and still not figure it out). Or you could wend your way through bottomless oysters, ribs, fried chicken, Flying Dog beers, boozy flavor ice and margarita-filled watermelons. Yep, better option.

Monday
Lobster and Beer for a Jackson
ESCAPE CLAWS

Lobster and Beer for a Jackson

Lobster. Beer. On the waterfront. Sounds like a late-August thing to do. Even if you’re not in Martha’s Vineyard. On Mondays, Tony and Joe’s is letting you have a lobster and a beer at the bar for 20 bucks. This seems like a fair transaction to us.
