It’s easy to dread starting the work week before you take some time off. You’re so close, yet so far, from relaxation. You still have so much work, laundry, shopping, and emails to wrap up. Despite your busy schedule, the District is in intense holiday spirits, and we’re here to spread that spirit with this week’s D.C. festivities.
Forget the stress of shopping for presents and grab some holiday cheer at Kramers Sip & Paint! Your first drink is on the house while Kramerbooks’ own Leila Elmergawi teaches you how to paint the cover of “The Nutcracker.” 1517 Connecticut Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.
Tryst Trading company is partnering with District Doughnuts for a “D Day” celebration. They’ll be selling a limited amount of some special flavors. Doughnuts will be available at Tryst, The Diner, Open City, The Coupe, and Open City at the National Cathedral starting at 10 a.m. while supplies last.
Masa 14 rooftop welcomes you for an evening covered in large star lights, heat lamps, and plush blankets on every seat. They’ll have a gourmet hot chocolate bar set up for all December, which is totally free! To accompany your hot cocoa, fresh baked cookies, hot chocolate, candy canes, marshmallows, whipped cream, chocolate chips, and the likes will also be available. You can even add Bailey’s on the side if you want to purchase a shot and spike your drink!
Who doesn’t love a little pick me up in the beginning of the week? The Bitches love to find a reason to celebrate life and the thriving restaurant scene. This week, check out the new French bistro, Primrose. Primrose is a wine bar from husband-wife team Sebastian Zutant and Lauren Winter. They focus on small and natural wine producers from France and the United States. Check out what we thought about the opening, here. 3000 12th St N.E., Washington, D.C. 20017
The thirst for holiday cheer is only increasing as we approach the holidays. The much needed holiday vacation is just around the corner, but we need something to hold us off until then. Dio wine bar is a place where you and your gal pals can unwind and get ready for the hectic holiday madness. 904 H St N.E., Washington, D.C. 20002.
Every night at 8:00 p.m., a “snow” machine and giant blow-up decorations will light up the outdoor patio of Radiator restaurant. Executive Chef Jonathan Dearden and Lead Bartender Sarah Rosner have created a menu of cheeky bites and sips inspired by the Griswold family from National Lampoons and their holiday misadventures. 1430 Rhode Island Ave N.W., Washington, D.C. 20005
Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France and featuring new staging and reimagined scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, Les Misérables is back behind the curtain of D.C.’s National Theatre. Seeing a show is the perfect winter activity, so book your tickets early before they sell out.
You’re about to skip town and you need one last legendary bite of your favorite burger to hold you over the holidays (an excuse we always make to get our familiar bites before we simply eat more somewhere else). Duke’s Counter is the place to be. You can even use the TidBit app to get intel on what other dishes people all over the District are salivating over. Indulge this Sunday and walk then walk it off with a trip to Zoo Lights afterwards. Talk about embracing Christmas in D.C.? 3000 Connecticut Ave. N.W., Washington, D.C.
