Things to do for February 04, 2010

The Weekender

Kubrick, Drew Brees's Dinner and Fireside Lasagna

The weekend will take the over.

Thursday
Movie Night at Black Cat
STRANGELOVE

Movie Night at Black Cat

Drop by the rock club's Backstage, where the normal indie angst gets traded for...Cold War angst. Kubrick's Dr. Strangelove will be on the big screen, and the club's new take on the Irish Car Bomb—a secretive development known as the Festiva Bomb—will be doled out with...aplomb.

Feb 4, 8:30pm, no cost, Black Cat, 1811 14th St NW, 202-667-4490

Friday
Inaugural Federal Friday at ONELounge
G-MEN

Inaugural Federal Friday at ONELounge

Here's your chance to hit up that Hill staffer about your earmark request for state-of-the-art oyster research. Every Friday starting this week, this new Dupont lounge is doling out two-for-one cocktails for anyone who draws a check from the government, from Hill aides to NASA scientists. Because no one's more fun than a tipsy rocket scientist.

Fridays, 7:30-9:30pm, ONELounge, 1606 20th St NW, 202-299-0909

Sunday
Lasagna Weekends at Naked Mountain Winery
FIRESIDE CHAT

Lasagna Weekends at Naked Mountain Winery

Random snowball fights aside, the city is no place to be with a foot of old snow on the ground. You want to get bucolic. Preferably somewhere with a fireplace and barrels of booze. And if they'll serve you a slab of homemade sausage lasagna, half a loaf of garlic bread and some vino, all the better. Because Virginia is for lasagna.

Weekends through mid-March, 11am-4pm, $17, Naked Mountain Winery, 2747 Leeds Manor Rd, Markham, VA, 540-364-1609

Super Saints Sunday at Acadiana
PIGSKIN PLAN

Super Saints Sunday at Acadiana

On Super Sunday, haute Louisiana haunt Acadiana is trading its three-course dinner and white-tablecloth service for flat-screens, pitchers of beer and all-you-can-eat New Orleans fare. Think oysters, boiled shrimp, Cajun wings, meat pies and beignets. And if your coin toss prop bet doesn't come in, there's plenty of absinthe.

Feb 7, 5pm-the final whistle, $29pp, Acadiana, 901 New York Ave NW, 202-408-8848 to reserve
