As a tribute to the classic Seinfeld fake holiday, Commonwealth, your Adams Morgan go-to for weekend threads like A.P.C. jeans and Red Wing boots, is discounting a different category of gear each day up to 50 percent. Jeans one day, hats the next, and Feats of Strength every day...

The weekend has lost count of holiday parties.
Discounts All Night Along 14th and U
In a show of neighborhood solidarity, stores along the 14th and U corridor are staying open late and offering deals on last-minute gifts (including gifts for yourself): 40 percent off holiday-party-ready gear at Caramel, 25 percent off condo-ready furniture at Rckndy, and an extra 20 percent off all sale items at emerging designer showcase Rue 14. And if it's all too much, may we suggest a nightcap at the Gibson.
Feast of the 7 Fishes at Dino

And if morning bleeds into afternoon, there's always its list of 100 tequilas.
