The Midsummer Classic takes over the Capitol Riverfront July 13 to 17 with a list of activities (from a celeb softball showdown to the home run derby) leading up to the All-Star Game at Nationals Park (ticket strips $367 to $1,372). You’ll need to fuel up to last to the final inning, and The Yards (355 Water St. SE) has a worthy menu. A scoop at The Juice Laundry will get you going. The Coco Verde Smoothie Bowl is a healthy blend of greens, mango, bananas, dates, and coconut oil and water. … Prefer to indulge in a luxe brunch? Chloe has plates like wildflower honey butter toast. Another option: Carry-out lunch and picnic at the waterfront park. … Quench your thirst at Whaley’s Rosé Garden. The punchy raw bar puts you in the pink with 14 bottles of rosé and coconuts filled with your pick of poisons. … Or get a baseball buzz at District Winery, thanks to the All-Star flight, with its first rosé. … Dry out with a boardwalk stroll and snack from Morini Piccolo, Osteria Morini’s culinary stand. … And postgame, cheer the win at Bluejacket. The microbrewery will offer two DC-themed cans in honor of the festivities, and ticket holders get $1 off all pints of Lost Weekend Citra IPA. Play ball!
