2018 #TrumpShutdown #SchumerShutdown DC Bar #Shutdownspecials

 

Finn McCool’s is one of several establishments extending HH all day for feds

If you were around in DC in October 2013, the one upside of the government shutdown (using both hashtags for the hits, sorry not sorry) is the DC bar specials. Unlike last time, however, the shutdown started Saturday at midnight and may very well be resolved by Monday, lessening the fun (Oct 1, 2013 was one of the great day drinking days in my decade plus in DC). Still, here’s some specials (h/t my own social media research plus WCP, Washingtonian, DC After Five , Eater – food specials in those links):
