Garret Fleming to head kitchen at Eatonville

The kitchen at Eatonville did not get off to an auspicious start. After holding a well-documented and ultimately unsuccessful Top Chef-style contest to choose his first head toque, owner Andy Shallal saw three different chefs (including both the contest's winner and runner up) briefly take the title. Now, after running his restaurant without an executive for a while, Shallal is bringing in 28-year-old Garret Fleming to run the show.

I've been eating my way across the region in search of surprising veggie and vegan fare, but I never expected to stumble upon a veg-friendly gem while writing the nightlife column for the Dec. 3 issue of Weekend. At Fruit Bat, the three-month-old bar on H Street NE, I spied one little word on the cocktail menu begged for more investigating: Soymilk.

On stage in December: 'Nutcracker,' Second City, 'South Pacific'

Like salty and sweet in the world of cuisine, opposing flavors can create a complementary treat. So it goes with theater this month. For every classic title, there's an edgy counterpart. What better way to follow "The Nutcracker" than with "Oy Vey in a Manger"?

Free and easy: A Beatles documentary and ArtFest

Coming back to work after a long weekend can be a drag. Luckily, a screening of the Beatles documentary "Let It Be," latkes at Cork Market, free jazz at National Geographic and a Christmas Bazaar with the Swedes can serve as some ideal pick-me-ups.

Tonight: Capital mustaches at Lyon Hall

Lead by Jason Chimera, a number of the Capitals are participating in a worldwide men's health awareness movement called Movember. As the month winds to a close it's almost time to bid adieu to the Capitals' best new aesthetic improvement since the team went back to red, white and blue uniforms. In the meantime, there is still time to donate, and join the participating Capitals for a celebratory party following tonight's game at Lyon Hall in Clarendon.
