Things to do for November 12, 2009

The Weekender

Endless Sake, Dollar Frites and Wild Squab

The weekend answers to no one.

Thursday
Bottomless Sake at Zentan
No Limit

Bottomless Sake at Zentan

For a hotel named after legendary spy "Wild Bill" Donovan, you'd think discretion would reign at the Donovan House. Unless bottomless sake is involved. The hotel's Zentan restaurant is offering UrbanDaddy readers unlimited pours of the adult beverage with any sushi, sashimi or hot appetizer platter. Just mention "Agent Bill" to get the hookup…

5:30-7:30pm, Mon-Fri beginning Nov 12, Zentan, 1155 14th St NW, 202-379-4366

Friday
Game Tasting at Inox
Game On

Game Tasting at Inox

It's a meal that would make Ted Nugent proud: a five-course menu featuring all sorts of shotgun-addled fare you don't normally eat (let alone see)—venison, rabbit, squab, hare and wild boar. Dick Cheney jokes provided at no extra cost.

$150/person, 6:30pm, Nov 13, Inox, 1800 Tysons Blvd, McLean, VA, 703-790-4669

Saturday
Repeal Day Ball Tickets on Sale
Noble Experiment

Repeal Day Ball Tickets on Sale

It's been almost 90 years since Prohibition was enacted, and you're still sore about it. Strike a blow for freedom by grabbing a ticket to the 2nd Annual Repeal Day Ball on December 5 at PS7's. Expect cocktails from legendary barman Dale DeGroff, early jazz and the occasional flapper dress. Okay, more than occasional—they'll be everywhere.

Sunday
Inaugural DC Tweed Ride
Knickers Required

Inaugural DC Tweed Ride

If the Tour de France took place at Oxford, this is what it might look like: a group of would-be dukes and earls donning wool vests, riding caps and plus fours for a bike ride to the pub. The postgame happens at Marvin, with gin drinks and enough Britpop to soothe Noel Gallagher's tortured ego.

No cost, 11am, Nov 15, Tweed Ride begins at 722 H St NE

Monday
Half-Off New Nage Bar Menu
Nearly Free Frites

Half-Off New Nage Bar Menu

Usually when you order bar food, you're expecting simple. And simple is fine. But Glenn Babcock, the new chef at Nage, is airing it out, with fare like steak tartare deviled eggs and tempura squash blossoms. Better yet, it's all half-price during happy hour, plus drink specials and $1 frites. That's fries to you…

5-7pm Mon.-Fri, Nage, 1600 Rhode Island Ave NW, 202-448-8005
