Nando's Open at National Harbor; Bibiana's 25 Cocktails

NATIONAL HARBOR—While its Zimbabwe franchise deals with the repercussions of a commercial that depicts frolicking dictators, Nando's Peri-Peri in the US is celebrating today's opening of yet another DC area location. The South African chicken chain is now open at National Harbor, the third Maryland opening this year. [EaterWire]

BOOZE NEWS—In what you are welcome to use as an advent calendar for alcoholics, Bibiana launches 25 days of cocktails tomorrow. The Italian restaurant has come up with 25 brand new cocktail recipes that it'll be unleashing in December — one for each day leading up to Christmas Day. So there's your excuse to drink every night, OK? [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILL—Also beginning tomorrow and continuing throughout the month of December, Acqua al 2 is selling loaves of house-made Panettone, a traditional Italian holiday dessert. These will be available for $22 apiece and can be bought at the restaurant or by calling 202-525-4375. They'll be giving away proceeds to the charity So Others Might Eat. [EaterWire]

BOOZE NEWS—Alexandria's Port City Brewing Company is set to release its limited edition Tidings Ale for the holidays. It is a Belgian-style blond ale made with local Maryland wildflower honey and Virginia wheat, and spiced with coriander, cardamom, fresh ginger and grains of paradise. It'll be available in bottles and on draft as of tomorrow. [EaterWire]
