10 Days of Festivus at Commonwealth

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...

Through Dec 23, Commonwealth, 1781 Florida Ave NW, 202-265-1830

Discounts All Night Along 14th and U
Sale-ing II

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.

Until 9pm, Dec 17, 202-246-0343 or more info here

Fish Story

Feast of the 7 Fishes at Dino

DC is short in the Little Italy department, but Dino's doing its part with this traditional Italian-American, pre-Christmas feast. On the menu: seafood crostinis, seafood wedding soup, linguine in shellfish sauce and grilled rockfish. We're sensing a theme…

$49/person, through Dec 24, Dino, 3435 Connecticut Ave NW, 202-686-2966

Saturday
Latin-Asian Brunch at Masa 14
East Meets West

Latin-Asian Brunch at Masa 14

Masa 14, the new Asian-Latin culinary mash up on 14th Street is adding brunch to its repertoire, with dishes like tenderloin Benedict with scallion kimchi pancake and green chile hollandaise, and Yucca brisket hash with chipotle hollandaise. And if morning bleeds into afternoon, there's always its list of 100 tequilas.

11am-3pm, Saturdays and Sundays, Masa 14, 1825 14th St NW, 202-328-1414

Sunday
Whole Hog Brunch at Old Glory
Boss Hog

Whole Hog Brunch at Old Glory

Just because it's brunch, don't limit your pork intake to bacon only. Suckling pig, smoked for 24 hours, is the centerpiece of Old Glory's brunch buffet. Even better, Bloody Marys and mimosas are half off when you get down with a little pig.

$14.95/person, 11am-3pm, Old Glory BBQ, 3139 M St NW, reserve at 202-337-3406
