The Morning Roundup

The Morning Roundup 7/23/2012

Hello Monday. I know many of you are dreading the day, but think about all the good food you ate this weekend. Also we got some deals to get your week started right.

Must Buy: Many of you might have heard of the event Drink the District (July 28). We are not involved with this entity, but we support it nonetheless. Today’s LivingSocial is VIP Admission for one. Now what this entitles you to is early entrance to the first session. The event is divided into sessions 12-4 and 5-9. I will personally be attending the 5-9 sessions, but this deal is only for the morning.

The Morning Roundup 7/19/2012

Happy Thursday, you’re almost to the weekend. You can do it! We’ve got some good deals to tide you over until Friday.

Must Buy: What’s better than free? Trick question, nothing. Every now and then Scoutmob throws a freebie out there. Today we have 1 16oz. tea gratis from Tea at The B Spot (1123 Pennsylvania Ave., SE). Now I’m not a tea drinker, but I’m the minority. So get over there and get a free tea.

Must Buy: A lot of the time you’ll see deals that exclude Happy Hours. Today’s Google Offer goes the other way.

Drink the District: Church and State

Last week I wrote about The Liberty Tree, my favorite place on H Street to sit back, eat some fries, and drink a beer.  Today, it’s time to share my favorite place to go right after.  Almost every time I’ve eaten at The Liberty Tree, the night has continued a couple of blocks away at the speakeasy-style bar Church and State.  Located up a flight of stairs (directly above the bar formerly known as Fruit Bat, which will reopen soon in an undisclosed new format), Church and State mixes prohibition style drinks with flair.

Friday Special: Drink The District @ Tonic

Yesterday, we took a gander at Tonic at Quigley’s new summer menu offerings.  But today it is Friday and to get you jonesing for that liquid fun, today we will take a brief look at some of Tonic’s signature cocktails.  Each one that was sampled will be given a rating in Bangs, either one, two or three Bangs will be awarded.  These Bangs are to be considered and measured against the Buck, whatever that entails… Here goes!

Last Exit Turns One

We’ve spent the first few weeks of Eat the District’s life sticking pretty close to that first word: eat. We’ve focused on the food and only the food, and whatever we did on a weekend night stayed on a weekend night. These past couple of days, though, Eat the District has been getting the urge to let our hair down and show our wild side. Yesterday we brought you the secret of the Gin Bucket, and today we’re pretty excited to tell you about our experience last night at Last Exit’s first birthday party.
