SALE-ING

70% Off at Denim Bar

The Bethesda temple to all things denim has pairs marked up to 70% off from lines including Nobody and Acne. These are in no way meant as insults to your character or complexion.

Town & Country's Facelift
OVERSTUFFED

Town & Country's Facelift

This institution of a bar just got new wood floors, a communal table and black leather chairs. What you get (besides a new place to sit) is $5 happy hour appetizers like grilled filet mignon bites, grilled flatbreads and french fries with black truffles and parmesan. Better yet, they do it again a little later in the evening, when those oversized chairs start to look just about perfect.

Friday
15-Layer Carrot Cake To Go
INDULGENCE

15-Layer Carrot Cake To Go

Long one of the city's most notorious desserts, Chef Scott Drewno's 15-Layer Carrot Cake is now being boxed up in three sizes for home consumption. Because nothing says home for the holidays like an avalanche of cream cheese.

Saturday
Made-to-Measure Shoes at Everard's
BESPOKE

Made-to-Measure Shoes at Everard's

London's G. J. Cleverly Shoes has fitted Tom Wolfe, Elton John and a few other gentlemen that fall between those two extremes. This weekend, they're here to customize a new pair of wingtips, Oxfords or other fancifully named leather goods for your feet.

Wednesday
Rare Wine Dinner at EVO Bistro
ON POINT

Rare Wine Dinner at EVO Bistro

Occasionally, you crave something rare, something the other guy doesn't have. Actually, you crave that all the time. Here's something: a half-dozen enviable vintages of Sauternes, Opus One and Barolo, each rated at 95 points or higher. Oh, and there will also be food—six courses worth, but you'll be focused on the glass.

$150, 7pm, Dec 9, Evo Bistro, 1313 Old Chain Bridge Rd, McLean, VA, RSVP at 703-288-4422
