ALEXANDRIA—Hank’s Pasta Bar is throwing a pasta party every Sunday designed for four ($60), six ($85), and eight ($100). Each three-course menu includes a family-style custom pasta dish for the table featuring choice of noodle, sauce, and two add-ins. Meanwhile, its Saturday Drag Queen brunch is back this weekend. 600 Montgomery Street, Alexandria, Va.

DOWNTOWN—As D.C. waits for its first Wawa — tentatively scheduled to arrive December 15 at 1111 19th Street NW December — Food & Wine feeds into the mouth-watering hype even more. A four-pronged fanout about the Philly-based brand calls out its “really good” food (i.e. a heavenly tuna hoagie on whole wheat); its “strangely addictive” breakfast; coffee that can be “spectacular” (go for the Cuban Roast); and its sweet and cheap junk food game.

LOGAN CIRCLE—Chipotle addicts on 14th Street NW are out out luck. A sign outside the temporarily shuttered eatery at 1508 14th Street NW cites ongoing “plumbing issues.” No word on when the quick-service chain plans to resume service; the sign says it should be “up and running soon.”

MULTIPLE LOCATIONS—D.C. just took home a don’t-tell-mom kind of title: the nation’s capital is home to the most heavy drinkers and binge drinkers in the U.S., according to a new study based on data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The collegiate-heavy DMV also houses the highest rate of young adult drinkers (age 18 to 24) and the highest rate of binge drinking among its wealthiest residents.
