The folks behind the cult favorite dive bar The Codmother appear to be set to soon open a new dive in the upstairs space at 1334 U St. NW formerly home to the Touchdown Sports Bar & Grill (a popular stop on the recent Barred in DC Circulator Bus Tour).
Keeping this week’s theme of interesting names for new bars (a new Columbia Heights bar will be called Tipsy Peacock) the name of this bar will apparently be Handsome Cock, according to a new Facebook page launched this week (hope your work/browser filter doesn’t flag this post). The Codmother announced the new bar in mid-February on its Facebook page, and I’m 80% confident that this not a moderately elaborate joke; phone calls made to the listed number for Touchdown were not answered, and Touchdown’s home page is currently down for “maintenance.” Both the new bar and The Codmother asked for some knick-knacks to decorate the bar:
Handsome Cock needs assorted craps for decoration purpose , from a unwanted Barbie Doll ,to your used dildo and everything between. You can donate your craps to The Codmother and make the most beloved farm animal very happy.
