DC is now the proud home of fried-chicken buckets and Yacht Week

Weekend Playbook Yacht

Thursday, May 30th
Start your weekend right by stopping into Pearl Dive for their new fried-chicken to-go buckets: six dark meat pieces (braised, then fried), four corn muffins, spicy slaw, and bacon-braised greens. Get the number now, and order your chicken later

Peep the Asado Bar at Del Campo, a nine-seat counter overlooking the open kitchen where $77 lands you four courses of grilled, smoked, and otherwise delici-fied meat and seafood. And for $42, the vegetarian menu... haha, just kidding.
Gotta reserve a seat if you want that delicious meat

Yes, it may be a Yacht Week party in a courtyard (Town Hall), but it's only $25 for 4hrs of unlimited Palm Belgian Amber Ale, a discounted private menu, and upper-deck-heavy scantily-clad women $3 nautical cocktails.
This always sells out. Get in NOW.
Rolling into Yards Park at noon, the New Belgium Brewing’s Tour de Fat is a day-long celebration of brews (Fat Tire/Summer Seasonal/Rolle Bolle), bikes, bands, and ba-dancing w/ a “Thousand Person Dance Contest".
Intrigued? Learn more here.
Throw on your loosest-fitting pastel polo and head to the 20th Annual Taste of Georgetown, where, from 11a-4p, you'll enjoy food from 25+ neighborhood restaurants (from Bandolero to Luke's Lobster), a Craft Beer & Wine Tasting Pavilion, and live music.

End an epic weekend at Barracks Row's Ambar, which has just started a bottomless weekend brunch w/ unlimited small plates (mezze/sandwiches) and free-flowing brunch cocktails like bloody Marys and mimosas.
They've got the full menu up right here
