Flour Power 

This looks like the opening of Captain Planet, except they're putting their desserts together to summon Captain Carb. Bakeshop is celebrating the grand opening of its Georgetown location this Saturday, Nov. 13 from 10 am - 1 pm at 3210 Grace St NW. Enjoy select samples of Bakeshop treats, plus you'll have the chance to win gift cards and other prizes. University faculty and students who show a valid school ID will receive a complimentary cupcake during the grand opening. The bakery will feature cupcakes, cookies, macarons, pie and cake slices, and other favorites like ice cream cookiewiches, Vietnamese iced coffee and a line-up of vegan desserts.

Drop and Give Them $20

Baking is a science, but so is making a bed you can bounce a quarter off of. So it's a surprisingly natural fit at Dog Tag Bakery - a small but mighty cafe at 3206 Grace St NW that hires veterans and their spouses to complete a program that provides work experience and tailored curriculum at the School of Continuing Studies at Georgetown University. During the day, veterans operate all aspects of the bakery, while also studying to eventually start their own small business. This year, Dog Tag is partnering with two organizations to send gift boxes to deployed service members. Each gift box is filled with treats from Dog Tag and coffee from Veteran Roasters, and available through their online store for those interested in donating in honor of Veterans Day. The bakery is also open, with order ahead and delivery available. At Pinstripes, veterans and active duty military can also receive one complimentary lunch or dinner entree (up to $20 per person) today with an ID.

Church Crawl 

Less distilled spirits, more Holy spirits in this version of a day out on the town. Head to Georgetown this weekend to learn local history through the story of several historic churches’ stained glass windows. Dumbarton United Methodist Church, Georgetown Lutheran, Epiphany Catholic Church, and Mt Zion United Methodist Church will be open on Sunday, Nov. 14 from 2 pm - 4 pm for free short tours and talks about their beautiful and artistic stained glass windows. Start at any church and walk to the next venue. Masks and sign-ins required. If you're near upper Wisconsin Ave. visiting the churches, make sure you check out another work(s) of art - an exhibit featuring the creations of 34 local artists on the lamp-pole banners in Book Hill. Georgetown Celebrates the Arts, organized by Washington Print Foundation, is up through Nov. 19; view the banner map here.

New Outfit, Same Fight Over Thanksgiving

Pick up the perfect pair of jeans to wear when Uncle Leroy brings up the 2020 election with a mouthful of yams. Everlane is celebrating its Georgetown grand opening today at 3259 M St NW, and our newest clothing retailer has all your holiday wardrobe needs covered. The brand partners with the best, ethical factories around the world and shares those stories with its customers - down to the true cost of every product they make. Men's and women's clothing ranges from t-shirts, to outerwear, dresses, jumpsuits and denim, plus shoes and accessories. Stop by today and start shopping - then head a few doors down to Aerie, another clothing retailer that opened earlier this fall at 3235 M St NW. The apparel store also features its activewear and accessories sub-brand, and has a ping pong table, digital boards with virtual surprises, and a space for customer experience activities.

Three Strikes to Tryptophan Land

This poor man had no clue he'd wind up in a newsletter. Bowl a Turkey (three strikes in a row) at Pinstripes from November 15 - 28 and feast on a free turkey dinner! Bonus: You'll be crowned a golden gobbler. If your bowling skills aren't up to snuff, you can still pay your way to gravy goodness with Pinstripes' Thanksgiving entrée, featuring sliced roasted turkey, peppercorn sauce, special housemade stuffing, crispy brussels sprouts, and cranberry sauce for $19.

Early Stocking Stuffers, No Stressors 

Frantically running through the aisles of Target at 7 pm on Christmas Eve isn't a great look. Get a jump on your holiday shopping and join local makers for an outdoor Makers Market this Saturday, Nov. 13 from 10 am - 4 pm on the grounds of Dumbarton House (2715 Q St NW). Vendors will be selling everything from handmade soaps, to cashmere scarves, tea, art prints, coffee and more. Make a weekend out of it and swing by Dumbarton House again on Sunday from 1 pm - 3 pm for a cozy autumn tea. Begin your afternoon with a self-guided tour of Dumbarton House Museum and enjoy the fall color in the gardens before settling into a full high tea. Enjoy fall-themed tea goodies including scones, sweets and tea sandwiches. Hats and fascinators encouraged!
