Poste's Patio Pilates Class; Pat McGee Trio at Jackson 20

PENN QUARTER—Instead of stuffing your face at brunch on Saturday, how about doing some pilates in the courtyard at Poste? And then stuffing your face at brunch immediately afterward? The restaurant launches its Saturday morning "Pilates on the Patio" class this weekend at 10 am for $19 per student. Classes will continue weekly until July 21, and you're strongly encouraged to eat brunch at Poste afterward from a special "healthy" brunch menu. [EaterWire]

ALEXANDRIA—Also in the Kimpton family of restaurants, Jackson 20 is hosting an event with CityEats tomorrow evening featuring the Pat McGee Trio, a roasted suckling pig and a full bar. Tickets are $55 for the event that gets underway at 6:30 p.m. [EaterWire]

DOWNTOWN—What was that heavy security presence outside Vidalia this afternoon? Well, according to the restaurant's Twitter feed, it was definitely not the Obamas, but Israeli President Shimon Peres, in town to receive the Medal of Freedom. Rumor has it that Shimon also dined at Tosca over the weekend, also fooling onlookers into thinking he was the Obama family. [Twitter]

CHEF SHUFFLES—Dupont Circle's 2100 Prime — the restaurant formerly known as the Jockey Club — has another new chef less than a year into its transformation. Please welcome Chris Ferrier as the new executive chef. [EaterWire]
