Someone is going all out for Pride, but I won’t name names. Yes I will! It’s City Tap Dupont! They’re rolling out a weekly Sunday Drag Brunch for Pride and they got all the goods. I’m talking $15 bottomless mimosas, steak and eggs, Bloody Marys, crab Benedict, and Ba’Naka as MC. They are not messing around there. On Saturday before you head to the parade, they’ll have a la carte $5 mimosas and their normal brunch offerings to keep you sustained for the day.
At City Tap Dupont and City Tap Penn Quarter, they’ll have Coney Island Brewery’s Pils for Pride on tap for $6.50 a pint. 15 cents from every pint will be donated to The Trevor Project and it’ll be available for happy hour all of June for $5 as well.

Everyone’s invited to DNV’s Pride Hangover Pool Party on Sunday if you can handle it. Cocktails, brunch, the pool, the view, music by DJ Hamsey, and rainbow boozy popsicles. $1 from each popsicle will be donated to The Trevor Project, so something good comes from your Pride fun.
