Things to do for November 19, 2009

The Weekender 11/19

Darts, Christmas Beers and Free BBQ

The weekend needs a congressional set-aside.

Friday
Grand Reopening of the Black Rooster
Back in Black

Grand Reopening of the Black Rooster

The 40-year-old happy hour institution lost its lease last month, but thanks to some grassroots outrage, it's reborn for your 2am dart tossing pleasure. Celebrate a victory for the little guy with $3 Buds and $4.50 Guinness drafts all night, and a ribbon cutting with Councilman Jack Evans. Every good dive bar needs a ribbon cutting.

Saturday
$400 Off With Trade-In at James
Upgrade

$400 Off With Trade-In at James

We like your suits. Mostly because you're always looking to trade up. Take those back-of-the-closet dwellers to James Clothiers, they'll give them to charity, and you'll get $400 off a Brioni, Canali, Armani or other brand ending in a vowel.

Nov 30, James Clothiers, Tysons Galleria, 2001 International Dr, McLean, VA, 703-883-1444

Sunday
Terra Cotta Tickets at Mie N Yu
Set in Stone

Terra Cotta Tickets at Mie N Yu

If Obama's cool reception in China has you down on Sino-American relations, allow us to suggest Mie N Yu's four-course Chinese regional tasting menu. Apart from delicacies like ginseng-poached egg with noodles, you'll get a gratis pass to the coveted Terra Cotta Warriors exhibit at National Geographic. And all will be right in the world…

$49, through March 31, Mie N Yu, 3135 M St NW, 202-333-6122

Monday
Free Sandwich With Beer at Rocklands
Smoke and Hops

Free Sandwich With Beer at Rocklands

We'll lay it on you nice and simple: sit down, order a beer—any beer—and get a chopped pork sandwich on the house. Order another beer, get another sandwich. If it weren't only two hours per week, it could get habit-forming.

Tuesday
Christmas Beer Dinner at Belga
From the Monks

Christmas Beer Dinner at Belga

Christmas is a season of forgiveness (and indulgence), so no one's going to judge you for making your way through a lineup of seven Belgian blondes. We're talking beers, of course. A three-course menu will be served with seven Belgian winter and Christmas ales. Seems like the right ratio of beer to food.

$49, 6:30pm, Nov 24, Belga Café, 514 8th St SE, Capitol Hill, 202-544-0100
