Martha Mondays is the alliterative title to the educational happy hour that happens at Kensington’s Martha (#14 on this year’s 50 Best Bars list). Starting at 5 p.m., these happy hours typically showcase a local, beer, wine, spirit or artisan producer that shows up elsewhere on Martha’s menu.
American Sardine Bar is kicking off Monday brunch today. The Point Breeze bar is offering brunch sandwiches, pancakes and even a breakfast sardine. Pair your brunchy bites with a breakfast screwdriver or a beermosa (wheat beer and orange juice).
Monday brunch is offered from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
On the off chance this weekly celebration was unbeknownst to you, welcome now to Burger Monday. The day where burgers are not so many dollars as they are usually, but remain every bit as delicious.
Celebrate the start of the week in proper burger fashion with Lo Spiedo, where burgers are $5 until 6:30 PM today. That means the usual brisket burger ($14) just made it’s way well into your price range.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve always found our first ladies to be infinitely more interesting than their fuddy-duddy ol’ husbands. But is there a First Ladies’ Day? Nooooo. So, in the spirit of compromise, I’ve rounded up this hilarious gallery of presidents transposed onto photos of their wives, and, in some cases, a few other feminine figures of their time. Have fun!

Bardot is now offering a Monday night four-course chef tasting menu. Chef Rhett Vellner’s menu is $45 per person and will change every week. The menu will featureseasonal inspirations and a twist on favorites from the regular offerings.
Vellner says, “I look forward to experimenting with new flavors and ingredients, as well as bringing modern updates to classic French dishes.”
Chef Andrew Wood of Russet is hosting a series of pasta-making classes for up to 25 guests on one Monday each month (starting this evening). Guests are taught how to make dough (Chef Wood grinds his own flour for this and all pasta at Russet) and roll a variety of pasta shapes. Sounds like a good time, but the real positive in going to such a class is in eating the pasta.
So, afterwards, the Chef will take all of the pasta made by the class and cook a dinner for the group, which includes house-cured charcuterie, salads, antipasti and the pasta as the main course. Pie, cake or tart will be for dessert.
Jason Cichonski’s Ela is offering a special $30 prix fixe on Monday nights. The three-course dinner options for each course, if we were ordering, that would mean:

- Cookie Dough
vanilla-bay ice cream, warm cookie dough
To further sweeten the deal, select bottles of wine are half-price on Mondays.
