Event of the Week Luckily, the RFK ROC Race doesn't require a roc'in bod or Rocawear; it just demands that, on Saturday, your body be put to its limits as you beeline through Wipe Out-like obstacles, including: the World’s Largest Inflatable Slide, Wrecking Ball, and Tight Rope Traverse. Gotta grab that ticket!
Freebie of the Week If you go to Bayou between now and the 12th and get a friend to buy a drink off their Summer cocktail menu, you'll get a free cocktail. You could also buy that first cocktail yourself, but that's not nearly as fun. Peep the list here
Thursday, August 8th Drop $9 at the lounge & bar at Bourbon Steak from Sunday to Thursday, and you'll get a beer, plus the sexiest hot dog you've never eaten: Japanese A5 wagyu beef & lean beef shoulder emulsified with foie gras trimmings and stuffed into casings, then nestled into a toasted, buttery, split-top bun. Just look at these delicious pictures of the dog
Friday, August 9th The 3 Stars guys are heading to Churchkey to celebrate their one-year anniversary, and they're bringing 20 beers. You should also drink those 20 beers. The party starts at 5p; be there. If you can't make it, at least see what they're up to at the brewery
Sunday, August 11th Kicking off DC Beer week is HopChef: a comp food and beer pairing where Brewery Ommegang's bringing in eight DC chefs to see if they can be a better match-maker than Lizzy Daniels from 11th grade. You get to taste each of the chef's dishes, plus snag full pours of Brewery Ommegang's beers and a George Dickel whiskey; they maybe get a senior superlative. Check out all the info
Monday, August 12th In honor of re-launching Heurich's Lager in collaboration with DC BRAU, the Heurich House is holding a party for pre-prohibition beer at the museum, where guests will get to taste the lager for the first time in 60yrs. Get all the info here
Tuesday, August 13th From 4-11p, for $27, Cuba Libre is slinging an unlimited amount of tasty small plates, like the crisp Berkshire pork belly pinchos, chino-glazed beef, and pork & pine nut meatballs. Never been? Watch this video tour.
Saturday, August 17th So the Trillectro Music Festival at Fairgrounds is next weekend, but we figured we'd tell you about it now because it's seriously almost sold out, probably 'cause Wale is gonna be there... or because of the other 15 bands. Either way, get your tickets immediately, or spend next Saturday trolling Instagram all lonely and sad. Quickly! Purchase!
