Things to do for April 22, 2010

The Weekender

$2 Tacos, Bottomless Brunch and Victory Beards

The weekend drafts speed, not size.

Thursday
$1 Draft-Day Beers at Public Bar
DRAFTY

$1 Draft-Day Beers at Public Bar

You'll be preoccupied with weighty matters today: the Skins' quest for o-line help, the draftees' curious fashion choices... what kind of beer to drink. Ease your mind at the downtown sports bar with $1 PBRs and $1 sliders throughout the first round. Come back Friday for $2 PBRs and sliders during the second round. You're on the clock.

Apr 22 throughout the draft, Apr 23 until 9pm, Public Bar, 1214 18th St, 202-223-2200

Pig Roast on Poste Patio
SMOKE AND FIRE

Pig Roast on Poste Patio

Nothing says Earth Day quite like a smoked 400-pound pig. For $15, you can sample the beast, as well as one of mixologist Rico Wisner's garden punches. Stick around for $4 drinks and eats—like stuffed squash blossoms, truffled frites and crispy Ipswich clams—off the new garden menu. It's how you get back to nature.

Apr 22, 5:30-8pm, Poste, 555 Eighth St NW, 202-783-6060

Saturday
Pica Taco Now Open on Florida Ave
TORTILLA FLAT

Pica Taco Now Open on Florida Ave

Grab yourself a window seat at this new slice of Mexico on a quiet stretch of Florida Ave and dig into their $2.25 take on the taco: authentic corn tortillas, rolled up with cilantro, onions and your choice of barbacoa, pastor or chicken. Or all three. But that would be a burrito.

Open now, Pica Taco, 1406 Florida Ave NW, 202-518-6820

Sunday
Brunch Launches on W Rooftop
UP IN THE AIR

Brunch Launches on W Rooftop

Your nights of debauchery on the W rooftop tend to become... mornings of debauchery. Now, let's throw in afternoons. Expect a rotating cast of DJs (with horn sections in tow) and a prix fixe menu that includes unlimited oysters and sushi, entrees like Waffles with Cinnamon Apples & Chantilly Cream... and bottomless Bellinis and Bloody Marys. You might need a room for your siesta.

Monday
Gratis Grooming Gear After Caps Victories
RALLY CAPS

Gratis Grooming Gear After Caps Victories

The Caps are growing playoff beards. If you're following suit, you'll want to head to the Lounge after each series victory. Show up with your beard and any kind of Caps gear for gratis beard grooming products like scissors, moisturizers and beard softeners. Because your beard can never be too soft.
