It’s the Friday before New Year’s Eve, everyone is cutting out early from work or better yet, didn’t come into work! Since I still had work tasks (we’re counting down the hours and listening for the mail handler to come with envelopes full of checks) to oversee, I was in the office but realized that I was scheduled to meet a friend (NS) for drinks later in the evening.
As I perused the shared subscription of the Washingtonian magazine and its review of the 100 best restaurants, I decided that I needed to go beyond my usual H Street, Gallery Place/Chinatown geography and venture out to the hip greater 14th St. corridor/Logan Circle area.
|NS’ Sobieski Vodka Cosmo and my sparkling wine
I proposed that we meet at the Pearl Dive Oyster Bar, located at 1612 14th St. NW.
They have a great happy hour menu (M-F/4pm-7pm): sparkling/red/white wine $5; Sobieski vodka martinis $7; 1/2 draft beer as well as for specials of 1lb of mussels for $9!
It was on like donkey kong!
It was a nice way to start the New Year’s Eve weekend.
What’s your favorite cocktail??
