CLARENDON— WAMU tours one of the few dives left in Clarendon, the endangered Jay's Saloon and Grille, and takes note of the bar's book exchange. [WAMU]

PENN QUARTER— While the big fuss of the day has been the Obamas' visit to Minibar, José Andrés tweets a video to remind everyone that Barmini is opening tonight. [Twitter]

PENN QUARTER— The brand new "All-local Happy Hour" at Poste is exactly what it sounds like, with Washington-region favorites from DC Brau, Port City, Chocolate City Brewery, Green Hat Gin, and Catoctin Creek on the drinks menu. Snacks include locally sourced items like Maryland blue crab and potato croquettes, Virginia peanuts, and fried Rappahannock Oysters. And Poste's even embracing the heart meat trend with a Polyface beef heart, beet, and goat cheese grilled flatbread for $8. [EaterWire]

DUPONT CIRCLE— Russian newcomer Mari Vanna will host a dumpling party this Tuesday at their Pelmeni Happy Hour — that's what they call dumplings in the Old World. Visit the restaurant from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. February 19 and receive one complementary dumpling, or buy a whole plate of veal, potato, beef, and pork pelmeni for $9. The price goes up to $12 for those who order between 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. [EaterWire]
