A Farewell to Half Pitchers; PS 7's Fried Chicken To-Go

MARGARITA WIRE—Prince of Petworth discovered yesterday that Lauriol Plaza is no longer selling margaritas by half pitcher, only by the glass. DCist follows up with a manager, who explains that "it's just too much alcohol for one person" and was causing too much trouble. So now you'll just have to drink your margaritas out of a glass or a full pitcher, people. [DCist]

CHINATOWNPS 7's chef Peter Smith is not only packing up his buttermilk fried chicken and other picnic staples into takeaway boxes for your summer outdoor dining needs — he's also offering delivery. Of course, it's only in a four-block radius of the restaurant, but it's a nice gesture. The fried chicken basket is $21 per person for the lunch portion and $27 for the dinner portion. The restaurant is also doing half-smokes to-go. To order, call 202-742-8550. [EaterWire]

BRUNCH WIRE—Introducing a new brunch menu now is La Forchetta, offering both an a la carte menu and two prix-fixe options: For $19.95, you can order a soup or salad, entree or egg dish and get your choice of juice, a Bloody Mary or a Bellini. Or, if you prefer, $15.95 will get you a pizza with a small salad and your pick of drinks again. Among the desserts, there's a calzone stuffed with bananas and nutella. [EaterWire]

CAPITOL HILL—On Sunday evening, Acqua al 2 is hosting a five-course dinner to raise funds for love.fútbol, an organization that develops safe soccer fields in South America. The dinner is $65 a head and, yes, some DC United players will be in attendance. Call 202-525-4375 for reservations. [EaterWire]
