What To Eat (& Drink) Tonight: Brisket & Beer at Standard

Tonight: After a short winter hibernation, popular 14th Street barbecue joint and beer garden Standard fires up the smokers again this evening. Chef and co-owner Tad Curtz has big plans for new menu items later into the spring season—stuff like lamb shoulder, cornish game hens, and crispy cheeks. But, for now, he'll be barbecuing the same tasty style of brisket and pulled pork that made the airy patio a 'cue hound haven last year. Arguably the best in the District last year, the brisket sandwich definitely doesn't suck. The gate opens at 5 p.m. sharp.

Coming up: the monthly pop-up "H Street Bakes" returns to The Big Board on Sunday, offering adult-themed Crunkcakes, as well as other sweet treats. Also on Sunday: The Passenger hosts a boozy fundraiser to benefit breast cancer research.
