What To Eat This Weekend: Meatballs Galore At Carmine’s, Sonoma & Casa Nonna

Go ahead. Have a ball. It's National Meatball Day, after all. And, as you might expect, there are deals to be had all over town. At Carmine's, for example, every table of six or more guests gets six free meatballs (and we're talking about some really big balls here). At Sonoma, meanwhile, chef Michael Bonk has prepared a bunch of meatball-themed dishes, including a lamb variety served with chickpea puree ($8) and a meatball-topped pizza with sopressata and onions ($13). Maybe the best deal, though, if you're feeling particularly ravenous, is at Casa Nonna, which is running a very American all-you-can-eat special on the Italian-style meaty orbs, served with a pasta and a carafe of wine for $35 per person.

Coming up: on Monday, Birch & Barley is hosting a five-course dinner with nine beer pairings, with proceeds benefiting the 826dc creative writing programs for kids. Get tickets here. Tickets are also now on sale for the upcoming Living Social pop-up preview of Suna, a new restaurant from the guys at Toki Underground and Acqua al 2. Get yours here. Also: Wine makers from California's up-and-coming Pasa Robles region are converging on the District with a series of tastings and wine dinners in April. Find out more here.

    For 35 bucks per person at CNonna, that must be one hell of a meatball dinner!
