Christmas Trees at Sixth Engine; Willem Dafoe Sighting

MOUNT VERNON TRIANGLE— In need of a Christmas tree? Head to Sixth Engine. The neighborhood bar is clearing out its patio to make way for trees; proceeds benefit the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation. Buy one and you can get a gift at the restaurant as well. [EaterWire]

ADAMS MORGAN— Eater will be rounding up Repeal Day events later this week, but here's one to keep on the calendars: Jack Rose's 1920s style event Dec. 5. That's when patrons will get a sneak peek at the new basement punch bar that the whiskey destination is working on. The private bar will offer prohibition-priced punch, specialty whiskeys and burlesque performances. [EaterWire]

BARRACKS ROW— Belga Cafe is hosting the first of two Holiday Beer Dinners on Tuesday evening. The four-course dinner has a Belgian holiday brewed paired with each selection ($49). [EaterWire]
