Bearnaise's Bulldog is Back; Barmini Cocktail Classes

Missy Frederick is the Cities Director for Eater.

EVENT PLANNING— D.C.'s Restaurant Week isn't the only game in town this month. Let's not forget Alexandria Restaurant Week (beginning Jan. 17; details here) and College Park Restaurant Week (beginning Jan. 20; details here). [EaterWire]

PENN QUARTER— Learn about cocktails from some of the best. Barmini's Juan Coronado will be hosting cocktail classes in February on Wednesdays. The classes are $95 per person and each focus on different eras: the Golden Era of Cocktails (191 –1935), for example, is centered around the Prohibition period. Each class features three drinks, plus bar snacks: attend all four for $365. [EaterWire]

BALLSTON— Since quarterback RGIII was benched, Big Buns' tribute burger now has a caveat. The Arlington burger chain is now calling the football player-themed burger The RGIII aka The Kirk Cousins, Washington Post reports. [WaPo]

CAPITOL HILLBearnaise's beloved bulldog is BACK! Chef Spike Mendelsohn Tweeted a photo of the pooch statue today (it's now sporting a protective chain). The mascot went missing in November and was featured in Eater's Shit People Steal column. Sadly, it wasn't returned — the restaurant had to commission another one from France, according to a spokeswoman. [Twitter, EaterWire]
