Urbana's Tribute to Degas; An Oktoberfest Beer Festival

DUPONT CIRCLEUrbana has partnered with the Phillips Collection to celebrate its new exhibit, "Degas’s Dancers at the Barre: Point and Counterpoint." Starting now and continuing through January 8, the Dupont Circle restaurant and wine bar is offering a special "Degas's Dance" cocktail inspired by the collection, plus a three-course prix fixe menu available for $50. The meal includes your choice of appetizer and entree, plus an amuse bouche, the specialty cocktail and sugar plum ice cream. Also, all those who have purchased tickets to the museum's exhibit get a free cocktail or glass of wine with the purchase of an entree, from which one dollar will be donated to the Phillips Collection.
