Here's the Plan

nepali by tdm design scarves!

Have some more.

WEAR
Nepali by TDM Design Scarves
What:
Designed in D.C. and crafted in Nepal, the patterned (tie-dye, floral, and plaid) neckwear aims to support women weavers by providing funds for community schooling and health care.
Why: If that doesn’t make you feel warm and fuzzy, the cashmere, silk, and bamboo fibers will.
When: Fall is right around the corner.
Where: Online at tdmdesigninc.com.

WHET YOUR WHISTLE
Fire Station One Drink Specials
What:
Housed in a former firehouse, the just-opened restaurant and bar launches a few too-hot-to-handle happy hours.
Why: Half-price burgers ($4.50) on Mondays, $2.50 pints on Tuesdays, and half-price bottles ($12-$14) of wine on Wednesdays.
When: Every Mon.-Wed., 3-10 p.m.
Where: 8131 Georgia Ave., Silver Spring (301-585-1370).

SHOP
Swirl Steals

What: Deep, deep discounts on ready-to-wear from some of our best sales.
Why: Habitual and Blank denim, pretty dresses from Walter and Harvey Faircloth, and more.
When: Now.
Where: Online at swirl.com.

READ
I’m with Fatty
What:
Edward Ugel, the D.C.-based author who brought you the unbelievable Money for Nothing, reads from his new work ($24).
Why: The hilarious, irreverent book chronicles the food-obsessed writer’s journey as he tries to slim down from 263 pounds. We particularly enjoyed his run-ins with ice cream parlor employees and colonic givers.
When: Tues., 7 p.m.
Where: Barnes & Noble, 4801 Bethesda Ave., Bethesda (301-986-1761).

CHILL
Rendezvous at The Ritz
What:
Kick it on a sofa and watch for VIPs while sipping half-price cocktails ($7) inside Degrees Bar & Lounge.
Why: Take your pick from Blue Basil (Belvedere vodka, blueberries, basil, and lemon simple syrup), a blood orange margarita (Hornitos Plata tequila and fresh blood orange), and Capitol Kiss (mint, champagne, raspberries, and blueberries).
When: Mon.-Fri., 4:30-6:30 p.m.
Where: The Ritz-Carlton Georgetown, 3100 South St. NW, Georgetown (202-912-4100).
