Asian Themed Fiestas, Yuppie Love, And Other Fine Reasons to Just Eat

Wonkabout
  • Wednesday, May 13: If you’re in the mood for an evening filled with drinking and debauchery, and you have no desire to watch the Caps game, check out the Beyond Happy Hour in the upstairs lounge of Skeweres and Cafe Luna.  From 6:30PM-11PM they offer great deals on beers, cocktails and martinis and DJ’s spin an interesting mix of electronic, house, techno, and hip-hop music.

  • Thursday, May 14: The Going Out Gurus are hosting their monthly Going Out Guide Happy Hour and, for some unknown reason, they’re headed out to Bethesda to Caddies on Cordell. There will be free food (which they tend to run out of, so get there early), and drink specials, including $2 Yuenglings and Miller Lite drafts, and $5 cocktails. They’re also having a big raffle for seriously awesome prizes that you probably won't win. Go for the food and drinks, and the chance to maybe touch one of the Gurus. [WaPo, Caddies on Cordell]
  • Saturday, May 16: Fiesta Asia, the annual National Asian Heritage Festival, is this Saturday from 11AM-7PM on Pennsylvania Ave NW between Third and Sixth streets. Yes, there is something just not right about the name of this festival, but instead of going there, we’ll mention the fact that there will be delicious pan-Asian fare, as well as cooking demonstrations. If the weather stays nice, and cross your fingers that it will, it should be a great way to spend a Saturday afternoon. [Fiesta Asia]
  • Sunday, May 17: Turns out Arlington is home to lots of good restaurants in addition to the now famous Ray's Hell Burger. On Sunday from Noon to 5PM, more than 40 restaurants will be out on Wilson Boulevard for the annual Taste of Arlington festival. The price is right: $20 in advance for eight tastes (or $25 at the door). [Taste of Arlington]
  • Food to look forward to: Java Green, a vegetarian and vegan food restaurant, is opening a second location in the District over on 17th and P NW.  If a restaurant that does not feature alcohol can do well on 17th Street, then maybe there is something to be said about DCers love for all things yuppie, including food that looks like meat but is actually made of vegetables.

Barack Obama delivered his first major address of his post-presidency Tuesday at an event in Johannesburg, South Africa, honoring the 100th anniversary of Nelson Mandela's birth. It was -- as you'd expect for the occasion -- appropriately dignified and thoughtful. It was also every bit as inspiring as you might expect from the first black American president speaking in memory of the first black president of a nation that for most of its modern history was synonymous with apartheid. Let's take some time to bask in what an actual world leader sounds like, shall we?

Guess what Vladimir Putin's getting for Christmas! He's been dropping hints, and you know the Big Orange Baboon can't say no to him for some unknown reason. Gonna be so cute when little Vladdy stumbles down the stairs in his PJs, brushes the sleep from his eyes, and finds MONTENEGRO all wrapped up with a big bow under the Christmas tree. Adorbz!

Oh, but we are to kid! Just a little levity as President Treasonweasel slams a sledgehammer into the international framework that kept us out of another world war for the past 70 years. So why are we suddenly talking about a tinyass country whose chief export appears to be consonants? (Sorry, Montenegro. But your Predsjednik Crne Gore is Milo Đukanović, and your capital city is Cetinje, which is just cheating at Scrabble.)

Well! Donald Trump just got out of a two-hour, closed-door meeting with Vladimir Putin, whose government tried to stage a coup in 2016 to assassinate Đukanović and stop Montenegro's accession to the European Union. Which might not be a coincidence!
