Key learning from last week: if you deck out any space in over-the-top Christmas decor, the people will come. Hence “Miracle on 7th Street,” otherwise known as the line around my block every night of the week for Mockingbird Hill’s pop-up Christmas bar. If waiting in line for tinsel isn’t your thing, here’s what else you could and should be doing this week.
We love the holidays. And we love them all—Christmas, Hannnukah, Chrismukkah, and Latkepalooza! Annually, cozy Commissary on P Street hosts this festive holiday event, which includes all-you-can-eat latkes, in sweet potato, regular potato and zucchini, as well as deep-fried doughnuts, and discounted drinks all for a $32 ticket price. 10% of the proceeds benefit the Jewish Food Center. Commissary, 1443 P St. N.W., Washington, D.C.
I’ve been taking a mid-day break during the week by walking through the downtown Holiday Market on F Street. Knock out some of your holiday shopping, or treat yourself to a mini donut, ’tis the season! 12:00pm- 8:00pm, F Street between 7th & 9th streets.
Celebrate the fourth night of Hanukkah by watching Bad Jews at Studio Theatre. Back by popular demand, this savage comedy about family, faith, and legacy became the best-selling play in Studio’s history during its 2014 run. Cori Sue saw it on opening night Saturday and can confirm it’s absolutely hilarious. Snag tickets, which are $25 for people under 30, here. Studio Theatre, 1501 14th St. N.W.
Think rosé season is over? Think again. Join the Fat Jewish, White Girl Rosé, and Brazzabelle at Asia DC’s F**K Winter party tonight. Bathing suits and flip flops are encouraged. Tickets, here. Asia DC, 1720 I St N.W., Washington, D.C.
End your week by tasting the rainbow at Renwick Gallery’s Wonder Exhibit. Afterwards, check out Convival, Cedric Maupillier’s new Shaw outpost, for a delicious dinner. The restaurant is garnering praise from food critics including Tom Sietsema and Eater DC. Read what the Bitches have to say here.
