The Morning Roundup

The Morning Roundup: 6/25/2012

Only one new deal to welcome you into the new week, but it is pretty crazy.

Must Buy: $5 for a Lou’s City Bar discount card from The Capitol Deal.  This savings punch card gets you ten draft beers for $2 off and five orders of wings at $5 each.  Their drafts mostly sit between $6 and $8 and a dozen wings would normally cost you $11 dollars.  Still following?  That is a total of $50 dollars in savings, to be used over time, at your leisure, for $5.  Oh, did I mention wings come in four flavors? Buffalo, BBQ, Jerk, and Chesapeake.

While the most notable exception to the rule is certainly the district’s large selection of incredible Ethiopian restaurants, I’ve instead found myself turning for a quick, cheap bite to the District’s sometimes-overlooked Latin American food, which can be found all over the northern side of Northwest DC.
