Washington Post: 11 things to do in the D.C. area this week
Monday, Sept. 17
Tiki TNT Pop-Up at Archipelago: We’re waiting for Restaurant Eve and PX cocktail wizard Todd Thrasher to open his rum distillery and bar at the Wharf — “November” is the latest prospective opening date for Potomac Distilling Company — but he’s found a way to slake our thirst while offering a preview of his new spot. The Tiki TNT pop-up, which is taking over Archipelago’s upstairs bar on Monday nights through Oct. 1, offers Thrasher a chance to refine his menu with classic tiki cocktails and frozen drinks. Each week will feature five new drinks, so repeat visits are recommended. 6 p.m. to midnight. Free; drinks priced individually.

Two Faces Comedy at Lincoln’s Cottage: Ever wanted to watch a comedy show but thought it needed more of a stately setting? Check out the Two Faces Comedy series at the cottage of President Abraham Lincoln. The museum has teamed up with D.C. Improv to bring the local troupe Porkchop Volcano for one of three scheduled comedy nights at the former presidential residence. A cash bar will sling beer and wine, and the show is recommended for adult audiences. 7:30 p.m. $5.
President Lincoln’s Cottage is a 501(c)(3) historic site and museum located in Northwest Washington, D.C. We provide interactive tours and exhibits, and host public and private events using Lincoln’s example to inspire visitors in their own path to greatness. Join us in learning and sharing brave ideas.
