When: 7 PM, Thursday, January 12,
Price: $40

Can’t get out of town for the long weekend? You can still enjoy a taste of the Big Apple at this Arlington wine bar, where winemaker and Brooklyn Oenology founder Alie Sharper will introduce wines produced in the region, all paired with New York-influenced small plates.

What: Appetizer, entree, dessert and adult beverage
Where: El Centro D.F. (1819 14th St. NW)
When: Friday, January 13
Price: $35.12

Three courses for $35.12 at Richard Sandoval’s 14th Street taqueria and tequileria is already a steal, but the addition of a top-notch margarita or seasonal (and spiked) agua fresca makes this deal muy caliente!

When: 5:30 PM–7 PM, Saturday, January 14

MLK Jr. Memorial Brunch and Celebration
