Welcome to BYT’s newest “hot damn, how could I live without this” column, Eating Out. We’ll be highlighting one food or booze special event every night of the week. From the best happy hours in the city to the uber expensive $500 per person tasting menus, there is something good to eat or drink every single night in this city and we want to help you find it. And yes, we get the joke.

tuesdayCocktails & Dreams @ Alfies

Alfies continues to shape shift from restaurant concept to restaurant concept. Tonight, they’ve opened up their bar for those of us who need a little lesson in how to craft the perfect cocktail. Drinks covered include Champagne Cocktails, Sours/ Eggwhites, Mahattans, Martinis, Martinez, Old Fashioneds, and Hemingway Daiquiris. There will also be sweet meats and cheeses for you to snack on. Soak up all the information you can and then show off at all those swanky holiday parties.



Whisky Wednesdays @ Petworth Citizen

More booze! Go get drunk and merry and celebrate St. Andrews day at the Petworth Citizen. Take your favorite Scottish book along with you. Mine would be Under The Skin.


thursdayBrewLights @ National Zoo

I shouldn’t have to explain to you why BrewLights is awesome. But I will. 1. There’s booze. 2. There’s animals. 3. There’s Christmas lights. 4. It’s dark out. That’s a recipe for success if I’ve ever heard of one.


fridayMiracle on 7th Street

Yes, it’s going to be busy. Yes the line is going to be long. But you can’t afford to miss Derek Brown’s trio of holiday bars. There are goats in sweaters, magical narwhals, and Stranger Things characters. If that isn’t enough to entice you, just think about how amazing those cocktails will taste after waiting outside in the cold for them.


saturdayMetroCooking 2016

Didn’t get enough cool and unique foodstuffs from Emporiyum? Then MetroCooking is the only place you should be this weekend. Pick up some sweet edible items, sit in on some cooking demonstrations, and you’re all set.


Explore the beautiful Irish, Romanian, Turkish, Vietnamese, and Indonesian embassies and sample all of their delicious chocolate at the same time. This is the best possible way to travel the world.

Your week looks delicious.
