The Best Shutdown Deals in DC

As the government shutdown enters its second week, bars and eateries in the DC area continue to offer special deals (as I detailed last week) to both furloughed gov’t employees like myself and everyone else.  Eater, the Post, and DCist have comprehensive listings of the deals that have continued; I’ve pored through these to come up with the best drinking-related ones in the District; WCP’s Young & Hungry has a solid list of the free food and drinks some spots are offering). Take advantage of your furloppurtunity (credit Semi-Charmed Living for that one)
