Go big for breakfast: 

*If you’ve procrastinated making any dining plans—even until Sunday morning—order a round of massive breakfast sandwiches and Bloodies from Shaw sandwich pop-up Butter Me Up (651 Florida Ave., NW). They deliver.

*St. Anselm’s buttermilk biscuits are some of the best in the city—and they are at peak amazingness when they come right out of the oven. We’ve got the recipe here, but if you want to make it easy on yourself, pick up a biscuit kit ($18) from the Union Market-adjacent steakhouse (1250 Fifth St., NE).

*Starting at 10 AM on Sunday, pan-Latin hotspot Seven Reasons will package a barbecue-style brunch for takeout or delivery ( 2208 14th St., NW). The menu ($200), feeds three or four, and includes a half chicken, steak, blood sausage and chorizo, roasted potatoes, and a few sides and sauces.

Give the gift of great drinks:  

*Shaw cocktail destination the Columbia Room (124 Blagden Alley, NW) has a bunch of cool drink kits with ingredients and recipes for concoctions like mint juleps, pisco sours, and sherry martinis. You can pick them up or get them delivered anytime between Wednesday, June 17 and Saturday, June 20. 

*Service Bar (926-928 U St., NW) serves 32-ounce batched cocktails for takeout and delivery. I’m partial to the burnt-orange sour and spicy paloma.

*Jack Rose, the Adams Morgan whiskey mecca, is holding a pop-up shop filled with bourbons, single malts, ryes, and more. Stop by the saloon (2007 18th St., NW)  and keep an eye on Instagram for hours.

Get top-shelf takeout from a (usually) hard-to-get-into restaurant:

*The biggest carryout news of the week: much-missed Filipino spot Bad Saint (3226 11th St., NW) has reopened. Same day orders are taken Saturday and Sunday.
