Friday night drinks: Bside
Mosaic District is lucky to have a place like B-Side: whether in the mood for beer, cocktails, or wine, there are great selections of either (not to mention a meat-focused menu of dishes and snacks). The space is comfortable, and the bartenders are friendly and skilled at improvising, too. Plus, Pokemon Go obsessives should know that Mosaic District is swarming with lures and players on the weekends.
Get there first: Saturday lunch at Duke's Counter
Make a day of it in Woodley Park on Sunday and head to the National Zoo. While there, spend lunch taking in a sandwich at the brand new Duke's Counter. Many favorites, from burgers to schnitzel sandwiches, from sister restaurant Duke's Grocery are available.
Saturday night dinner: The Source
The Source's terrific $5 dumpling night has been moved to Saturdays for the summer, which is all the incentive one should need to get there. Still need the arm twisted? Check out the seasonal lobster hot pot special.
Get there before it's gone: Late night doner at Doner Bistro
The last night of service for this German Adams Morgan destination is August 1. Go there for doner, schnitzel, beers, and other specialties. Can't make it over by then? Consolation prize: the Leesburg and Frederick locations will remain open.
Sunday breakfast: Slipstream
It's no secret avocado toast is more-than-trendy. Try Slipstream's version over a nice coffee for a leisurely Sunday morning.
