This Week: Brunch Fuel, Seasonal Cocktails, Art Installations
Welcome to DC's source for all the things you should be eating, drinking and doing in the district. Here's where to eat, drink, and be in DC this week.
Spring seasonal doughnut flavors have arrived! Through the end of the month enjoy these select varieties from downtown doughnut purveyor, Astro’s: Cherry Cheesecake filled with tart jam, glazed with cream cheese frosting and graham cracker crunch topping; Banana Brown Butter with a banana glaze, brown-butter almond streusel, and freeze dried strawberry powder; Chocolate Peanut glazed with dark chocolate and topped with peanut-hazelnut caramel; and RumChata filled with rum horchata, glazed with vanilla and topped with cinnamon sugar.
Brunch just got way more fun at POV’s Sunday Brunch Fuel - start off with a complimentary dancing session lead by Sensazao Dance Fitness and then enjoy 20% off of food at POV brunch. 11:30AM - 12:30PM dancing session at POV Lounge with brunch until 3 PM featuring bottomless mimosas and bellinis on the Terrace. Food items include Drunken Pancakes (with rum maple banana syrup, walnuts, cajeta chantilly cream), Duck Egg Hash, Puerco Pibil Benedict, Chicken and Churros, and more.
Whether you’re rejoicing or burying your sorrows on Tax Day, Carmine’s has a drink for you - opt for the Refund Rejoice (Pomegranate Spritz) or choose The Bitter Sting Negroni; both are priced at $10.40. Pair your choice of beverage with a stuffed chicken parmigiana hero with your choice of Caesar or mixed green salad, also on special for $10.40 on April 17.
Now that peak bloom is over, cherry blossoms are out and art is in - check out No Spectators: The Art of Running Man which brings together large-scale art from the cultural movement, Burning Man.
Alternatively, Do Ho Suh’s architectural exhibit on display at the American Art Museum showcases fabric architecture featuring large-scale, brightly colored sculptures - which are actually hand-sewn fabric recreations of abodes the artist formerly lived in from his time around the world.
Squeeze in your Instagram photo-ops before both exhibits get packed - as they are likely to be.
