So here we are again. Another week gone by, another weekend at hand. And the question now is, where (or what) should we eat this weekend?

But don’t worry. We’ve got the answers for you. That’s why we’re here.

  • Have you been to The Dutch yet? The answer should be yes because the collaborative breakfast and lunch spot from Joncarl Lachman and Lee Styer has been open for a year already, serving what is essentially an all-day, every-day Pennsylvania Dutch brunch. If you haven’t been, this is your moment. Get there this weekend. And if you have been there, go again. Also, they’ve got their first birthday coming up soon, which they’re celebrating with a fancy-pants dinner party. It isn’t this weekend, but it’s a date you should keep in mind.
  • Speaking of brunch, Michael Schulson‘s Harp & Crown starts brunch service tomorrow. Good thing a weekend has two days, huh?
  • Suga has a new happy hour menu that just went live. That means wasabi hummus, kimchi chicken bao and popcorn pork ravioli for everyone. Bonus: the new menu tops out at $8 so you’ll still have plenty of money left over for…
  • dinner at Veda, the new(ish) modern Indian bistro in Rittenhouse. This place kicks ass. The menu is excellent. And they’ve even got a few custom cocktails coming from their sleek, library-themed bar. I reviewed the place earlier this week, so if you’re curious, check it out here.
  • Finally, there’s this. Depending on how long your “weekend” goes (I try to make mine last until at least Wednesday), keep in mind that Tria Taproom is launching their new cocktails-on-tap program on Tuesday. There’ll be four of them, and while they will normally run you $11-$12 bucks a pop, on Tuesday, they’ll all be just $10, which is a bargain. I mean, seriously? Check out this description of their kegged Black & Stormy: “Cruzan Black Strap rum with organic ginger simple syrup, Pickett’s American Craft Hot ’n Spicy Ginger Beer and Persian lime juice, served “fizzy” and garnished with a lime wedge and ginger candy.” That sounds awesome.
