If your Friday afternoon workload is on the light side, head on over to the downtown Smith & Wollensky–today is the final day of their annual National Wine Week promotion. For $10 (plus the regular cost of lunch), the old school steakhouse's gruff servers will pour generous samples of ten American wines. And you thought martini lunches left you stumbly? Seriously, clear your iCal if you're going to this one.
Available between 11:30 AM and 2:30 PM (meaning they won’t let you drink past 2:30). 1112 19th St., NW; 202-466-1100; Nationalwineweek.com.
