Barred in DC Overview

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)
