Comedians John Mulaney and Nick Kroll have both given us more entertaining work than George and Gil, the crotchety Upper West Side-residing characters they’ve performed as for close to a decade. But sometimes that’s what you have to work with if you’re missing Kroll Show and want to keep Mulaney from creating another fake Seinfeld. The show originated as a sketch of the same name, in which the two fellas staked out a New York diner and filmed a public access channel-style prank show where customers received sandwiches with egregious amounts of tuna, followed by aggressive cackling.

Warm up from the snow and celebrate Presidents Day with a bowl of Senate bean soup at Martin’s Tavern. Martin’s claims several presidents, including Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, and Richard Nixon, had regular booths at the restaurant when they were congressmen. (Ask the staff, and they’ll tell you which booths.) Bean soup, which has been served in the Senate dining room since the early 20th century, will be available at Martin’s through the week. Martin’s Tavern, 1264 Wisconsin Ave. NW. (202) 333-7370. martinstavern.com. (Jessica Sidman)
