Things to do for April 14, 2010

The Weekender

Barside Accounting, Mobile Pizza and Skinny Ties

The weekend funnels everything through the Caymans.

Thursday
Cocktail Deductions at Topaz Bar
SCHEDULE C

Cocktail Deductions at Topaz Bar

The 1040 still lacks a deduction for cocktails (at least until Congress gets serious about reform), but the Dupont lounge is taking the sting out with a deal that gets you a cocktail and bar snack for $10.40. If Uncle Sam is taking a bigger bite, then order any two cocktails and your third will be "deducted" from your bill. No accountant required.

Apr 15, 5pm-close, Topaz Bar, 1733 N St NW, 202-393-3000

Do Your Taxes at Zola
NAPKIN ARITHMETIC

Do Your Taxes at Zola

So you procrastinated. The spy-themed Penn Quarter haunt has you covered with tax forms, calculators, envelopes and #2 pencils—they'll even mail in your form for free if you do it at the bar. They'll also throw in a three-course lunch for $20.15 and dinner for $35.15 at the bar. No tax, naturally.

Apr 15, all day, Zola, 800 F St NW, 202-654-0999

Shot and a Goal at The Red & The Black
POWER PLAY

Shot and a Goal at The Red & The Black

You're certain that Alex & Co. are about to usher in several weeks of celebration. Start here during Game One with $3 PBRs all night, plus dollar shots for every Caps goal. Call it your own personal hat trick.

Friday
DC Slices Truck Starts Rolling
PIE GUYS

DC Slices Truck Starts Rolling

You love your pizza. Perhaps even enough to chase it around the city. On Friday, the long-awaited mobile pizza oven starts its rounds, turning out homemade crusts topped with pepperoni, mushrooms or sopressata. They'll even have Wi-Fi, but try not to get any grease in your laptop.

Saturday
Your Kentucky Derby Tie
GET SKINNY

Your Kentucky Derby Tie

Before long, it's going to be hot, and you'll undoubtedly find yourself on a veranda at some Southern senator's fund-raiser. To look the part, grab one of these Outer Banks-inspired cotton ties in bright pastel patterns. Order any width, from power-tie wide to Rat Pack skinny—like what JFK would have worn if he were from Biloxi.
