ADAMS MORGAN—Traveling lady bartender competition Speed Rack comes to DC this weekend with a friendly Sunday afternoon showdown at Jack Rose Dining Saloon featuring some of DC's best lady bartenders. Hailing from booze-friendly places like The Passenger, Jackie's Sidebar, Founding Farmers, Tabard Inn, PS 7's and more, these ladies will each be making a round of cocktails to be judged by a bunch of lady judges — plus Mike Isabella for some reason. What's in it for you? A $20 ticket ($25 at the door) gets you punch, cocktails, and food from not only Jack Rose but also Sticky Fingers bakery. Get your tickets online here. [EaterWire]

OLD TOWN—It's time once again for the pajama brunch at Virtue Feed & Grain, this time with a cappella singers. This Sunday, Georgetown University's co-ed a cappella group the Georgetown Saxatones will be performing songs by people like Timbaland and Taylor Swift while you eat your eggs. [EaterWire]

EVENTWIRE—Share Our Strength has announced a special Taste of the Nation ticket pre-sale this holiday season. Now through December 31, you can buy tickets for the April 2 event at a 10-percent discount. Tickets originally cost $95 for the general public. Buy your tickets online here and use the case-sensitive discount code JINGLE. [EaterWire]

LISTICLES—DCist put together a handy round-up of all the city's oyster happy hour deals, from America Eats Tavern to Urbana (plus all the usual oyster suspects). [DCist]

CLEVELAND PARK—On Sundays and Mondays this wintertime, Ardeo + Bardeo unleashes a new "Pie & Wine" special — which, unfortunately, does not refer to actual pies but pizza pies. Though that's still a good kind of pie. Anyway, the deal is you get one of their house-made pizzas plus a glass of wine (or draft beer) for $15. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—If you would like to learn how to make chestnut macarons or chocolate souffle, Adour chef Fabrice Bendano is teaching a class about this very thing on Sunday at 11:30 a.m. Reserve a spot for the $75 class by calling 202-509-8000. [EaterWire]
