To Do Thursday: Warm Winter Cocktails, Secret Passwords, Quidam and More!

What does your weekend look like, friends? We've had a busy week of events and are looking forward to getting a few things done before heading back to Annapolis for the holiday, but it's hard with so many fun activities going on around town. In this week's "To Do Thursday," we share a few of our favorite happenings - if you've got a fun event or activity that we should take note of, drop us a line!
Apple Buttered Rum at the W Hotel DC

Warm Winter Drinks - POV at the W Hotel
We had the exclusive chance to preview the W Hotel's new winter drinks menu at POV Tuesday evening, where we also got to take in the fun "apres ski" party from Gilt City. We sampled the new warm drink menu and determined our faves-  a mulled rum cider and a tea-like scotch and lemon concoction that truly felt like it soothed our soul - or at least the memory of our long, long day at work!

Secret Passwords for Freebies at Urbana 
What's the password? Say the secret word "nutmeg" and "bubbly" and score a free app and free glass of sparkling wine on your next visit for dinner at one of our favorite restaurants in Dupont's Hotel Palomar.

We got the chance to preview this great limited-engagement Cirque du Soliel show at Verizon Center last night and let us tell you ... it's pretty magical. Quidam tells the story of a young girl who retreats into her imagination after feeling abandoned by her parents. Basically, it's a trippy romp through storyland, complete with awesome aerial silks shows, tumblers, audience participation and more. The intimate setup makes the massive Verizon Center feel cozy, so there's really no bad seat in the house, and it's the first Cirque show we've seen where a live band plays and helps set the tone of the show. We're not a huge fan of clowns, and there are clowns aplenty in this show, but it was still awe-inspiring. Don't miss the best part - a man and woman strength display that is sure to rock your socks off.

Sugarloaf Crafts Festival
