Happy Hour Hotline: Anti-4th of July
allisondesy | Jun 27, 2017 | 1:00PM |

It’s almost 4th of July and the nation’s capital is in complete patriotic overload. If that isn’t your thing, fear not. Here’s a lineup of places to go if you’re looking to escape the red, white, and blue.


Do you like wine? Beer? Mojitos? Margaritas? Alero offers phenomenal drink specials on all of these libations and more. Bring some friends, stake out a table, and order some pitchers to kick off your un-American celebration from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. daily. Grab some quesadillas or plantains to snack on while you consume probably way too much alcohol because the drink deals are way too good to pass up.

SAAM + BYT Present: Murder House Party A Renwick Gallery Murder is Her Hobby Opening! EARLY BIRD TICKETS ON SALE NOW! A murdery after hours featuring exclusive access to the BRAND NEW exhibition Murder is Her Hobby: Frances Glessner Lee and The Nutshell Studies of Unexplained Death! Frances Glessner Lee crafted her exquisitely detailed miniature crime scenes to train homicide investigators to “convict the guilty, clear the innocent, and find the truth in a nutshell.” These dollhouse-sized diorama composites of true crime scenes were the equivalent of virtual reality in their time, and helped to revolutionize the emerging field of forensic science. Constructed in the 1940s and 50s, they are still used to train homicide investigators today.
