Souk should have their bar up and running tonight. Hopefully the back dining room will be open as well. Liberty Tree now has the promised whole-bellied clams. These are sweet, delicious clams that make for the best fried clams.
The FreshFarm farmers' market reopens tomorrow. Look for Casey Patten of Taylor as the featured Chef at the Market around midmorning. The market will also feature new additions Red Apron Butchery, Dolcezza Gelato, and H Street's own Dangerously Delicious Pie. Metro Mutts is going to participate tomorrow as well. The market runs from 9-12 noon. There are some other events tomorrow night as part of the First Saturdays series that H Street Main Street is launching.
After the farmers' market, you can stop by Ethiopic, which opens at noon for lunch and congratulate Sam and Meseret and the birth of their first child, Noah. Their signature lamb tibs might be the tastiest thing you can get anywhere on H Street. While you are over that way, drop by Capitol Fine Wine and Spirits. They've gotten in almost all of the hard to find beers that folks have requested since openings, including four types of Bells and a Great Lakes beer. They have a really impressive beer selection now, including a few types of Ethiopian beers and a solid offering of inexpensive wines.
Just off H Street, Jimmy Valentines will be cooking up 90 lbs of bacon starting at 3 pm.
Toyland will be mixing up Mint Juleps in honor of Derby Day. They open at 5 and the race is at 6.
Saturday night, City Gallery has an opening reception for their latest exhibit starting at 6 pm.
There's a whole host of events on H Street on Saturday night, per usual, but especially in light of the First Saturday kickoff, so check out details about events at Palace of Wonders, Rock and Roll Hotel, Sova, and more here.
