Where to Find Miller High Life in a 750ml Champagne Bottle in DC

Credit: Miller High Life
Barred in DC bought 3 of these at Grand Liquors in Hill East. Classy neighbors

[Post Edited] 750 ml champagne bottles (!) of the DC bar alternative for brohsters to Natty Boh and PBR, Miller High Life, has been rolled out nationwide for the first time. Barred in DC has had trouble (Ed. Note: He has not actually tried) finding it in DC, but a source has told him (Ed. Note: ok the source is the social media person behind the Miller High Life Twitter account) which 13 bars and 6 liquor stores in DC have ordered Champagne of Beers in a big bottle. Note that many of these spots may have already run out or are waiting until NYE to pour them. There may be others who’ve ordered otherwise. Barred in DC picked up one at one of these liquor stores for $3.99; each bottle is 25.4 oz. FYI.

How many of each Fast Food/Fast Casual/Quick Service Chain Spot is in DC?

While killing time on an unexpected day off, and while researching for my next eagerly-awaited Twitter poll, I went down the rabbit hole and started calculating how many locations of prominent fast food/fast casual/quick service chains were in DC proper. After tweeting some figures, I ended up getting tons of reaction, showing that this is many interested in. People are fascinated that there is one Little Caesar’s in DC, up on a strip across from the Georgia Ave. NW Wal-mart in Brightwood. One follower even created a Google Map (https://twitter.com/ChelseaCirruzzo/status/1070768690394791939?s=19)with many spots.

Decided to put this in a post and organize it better. This doesn’t include very limited chains necessarily and the figures can be off a few.

Underwhelmed with DC’s New “Night Mayor”? You’re Not Alone

[Full Disclosure: Barred in DC spent at least 30 minutes updating his resume and drafting a cover letter and applied for his job. He never got a callback, and is not bitter. At all.]

Today, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser appointed Shawn Townsend, a Supervisory Investigator at ABRA, the Night Mayor Director of the Mayor’s Office of Nightlife and Culture.  Reactions have been fairly negative thus far:

  • “D.C. Put A City Bureaucrat In Charge Of Its New Nightlife Office” – DCist, Rachel Kurzius
  • “I’m thoroughly disappointed,” [the owner of Trade/Number Nine] says. “We wanted someone with real world experience. ‘I once opened a bar in South Carolina,’ isn’t enough.” (see WCP/Laura Hayes article
  • #keepdcboring
  • “Wow. So lame”
  • “bucking trends is something only the coolest towns do. DC is a cool town and totes has a gf…u wouldn’t know her cuz her mom used to be the Canadian ambassador, so, uh, she’s back there, now, yeah”
  • “Oh this is not going to end well” – Trevor Frye, former DC bar owner/bartender
  • Real-life tweets from non-family members or on my payroll:
    • “It’s not Barred in DC so I move along.”
    • “Barred in DC was robbed.”
    • “Barred in DC’s name isn’t Shawn Townsend tho.”

The Washingtonian’s Brittany Shepherd found out some public details about Mr. Townsend, including exactly which bar Mr. Townsend opened: a bar in the West Ashley suburban area of Charleston, SC, called 7 Cafe. The spot was open from around 2010 to 2015, it seems was located in a strip mall parking lot, which isn’t exactly comparably located to the many bars in DCs in walkable, dense districts near residents and the like.


Well it did have a valet.

Laura’s article is really a good read regarding the missed opportunity they had with this position, as many folks wanted something more akin to the Night Mayor in Amsterdam, NYC, London, and other cities around the world being a creative force in getting nightlife really ramped up, which is the key issue in why so many folks were disappointed.

The office that Mr. Townsend will lead was created by the DC Council to be more of an outreach/liaison role in the first place. This was always clear by anyone who followed the law and read the position description that this wasn’t going to be a “night mayor” as in other cities. Instead, DC apparently really hyped up this position to the media, talking about all the applications they received, and the media ate it up (note many of these articles really explained what the position did, but again most people only read tweets/headlines).

As early as October 9th (before many of these articles came out), Mayor Bowser was saying the  city has already has “a daytime, lunchtime and night time mayor” but this didn’t stop the media from continuing using the term (particularly since it seems self-serving from the Mayor in an election year.). As a result, with the government really pushing forward the narrative that this was a big deal with all their applications set the expectation that the government wouldn’t be hiring another bureaucrat. [Disclosure: I’m really good at being a bureaucrat, but alas.]

Public Bar to Close in Early 2019; Replaced by Another Sports Bar Concept

Public Bar, the Dupont Circle/Midtown sports bar slash nightclub, is set to shutter in early 2019 (perhaps as early as New Year’s Day), the bar has confirmed to Barred in DC. It will be replaced by a new concept/name (though still be a sports bar) to reopen in spring 2019. 

The well-attended spot (perhaps not popular given the 2.5 Yelp stars and the likely “good riddance” derision this post will get from DC yuppies who turn their nose at that area) first opened in spring 2009, replacing Club Five.  Barred in DC personally saw Nationals player Ryan Zimmerman arrive in his Uber from Clarendon (not an unusual sight) a few years back.

As a way to close down the bar, the bar is having a “Come As You Are” NYE party, with a $20 admission charge ($15 early bird, $25 later on), with all drinks (yes, even top shelf liquor) priced at $5.

It’s unclear whether this development has anything to do with the upcoming Chik-Fil-A to be located on 1st floor and basement of same building.

Where to Ring in 2019 – DC Bars – New Year’s Eve Guide (12/31/18)

2019 is coming. To help you out, Barred in DC has once again compiled a list of New Year’s Eve celebrations at Washington, DC bars below (nearly all with a cover include a champagne toast, party favors, and a DJ so just assume they will have if not mentioned), which I’ve split up by whether there is an open bar (at least 3.5 hours long), a cover charge (many of these include an open bar) and no cover bars (likely these won’t be announced until the week or so before the NYE in DC). For those of you braving open bars, remember to tip well to start and for each drink. A

Will update continuously till NYE. At some point I will just retweet @barredindc.

Where to Watch Tiger v. Phil “The Match” in DC

Official site

In an ambitious ploy to capitalize on the comeback of Tiger Woods, “The Match” was conceived as a head to head golf match between him and Phil Mickelson, which starts at 3p eastern time on Black Friday. $9 million at stake.

To the derision of many, this match is only available in home by ponying up 20 bucks to stream online or through your cable provider. But at least a couple bars are confirmed to watch:

  • Caddie’s on Cordell (Bethesda) – HH til 8p
  • Penn Social (Penn Quarter) – opens at 3p, which is 1 hour earlier than normal. HH is usually 4-7p everyday with $2 off drafts, $5 rails, $6 wine, may start earlier 
  • Mister Days (Clarendon)
  • The Brig (Barracks Row) – with sound

Ventnor Sports in Adams Morgan may show it depending on interest 

2018 Thanksgiving Eve Drink Specials in DC + Thanksgiving Day/Night Deals

The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is the country’s biggest single bar night. Known by some as Drunksgiving as well as other nicknames, it’s a night where all across the country, folks returning “home” meet up with buddies who’ve stuck around or have also come back. Due to the transient nature of #thistown, a lot of people go out of town for this night, but just as many come back since DC is a pretty convenient place to get to. In DC, bars can be open til 4a Wed-Sat night this week though expect most not to actually be open that late. That being said, here are some spots having specials: [EDIT: added Thursday deals as well, and took a bunch of great ideas from the Washingtonian’s recent college grad/fellow writer, Daniella Byck, so you should check that out as well]
