My friends know that my cinematic favorites lean in the direction of John Waters and Alejandro Jodorowsky. But darn it, that doesn’t stop me from loving cute animated monsters. So I’m heading to Rosslyn Cinemas to see Mike Wazowski, Randall Boggs, and all the other Monsters Inc. crew once again. –Alice Levitt, food editor/critic
The Breakfast Club
I’m going to start my weekend off right with breakfast at Preservation Biscuit Company. I haven’t gone out for Saturday-morning breakfast in ages, and the time is nigh.

Now that pool season is here, it’s time to throw the first summer party of the year. And nothing says summer like a tiki-themed party. Being from a family that always has an annual pool party, I definitely missed out on the summer fun last year. To make this get-together extra special, I’m going to be making tropical cocktails from Tiki Thai owner Jeremy Ross for a true tropical flavor. –Michele Kettner, associate digital and research editor
