Profiling Joe Englert

J_Englert_illo_finalLEAD-150.jpgThe Washingtonian has a great profile of Joe Englert, the nightlife guy behind spots from the Big Hunt to the H Street Country Club — and a whole lot in between. Here's a fun explanation of his bars' popularity: "More than anything, Englert’s bars seem to say: Lighten up, you’re in a bar. Fine, you work at a senator’s office or a fiscal think tank. Ooh, you lobby for Lockheed. Good on you for your tireless campaign to save the spider monkey. But when you take off that laminated security badge, do you also have to go to a serious bar?"
