7:30 p.m. on a Wednesday night:
Tim: "Can I get an Old Fashioned?"
Bartender (Russell de Leon): "Absolutely not."
Tim: "Can you make me something similar?"
Then this happened, courtesy of a random stranger at the bar. Yes, I was publicly shamed on Twitter for my order.
dude just attempted to order an old fashioned at @thepugdc, in case you thought there weren't any clueless dreamers left in this cruel world— christopher (@_christopher) October 15, 2014
What I ordered instead: DC Brau's The Corruption, followed by a Commonwealth Gin and ginger.
Bonus fact: Click on "speciality cocktails" on The Pug's website... and you'll be redirected to Cosmo.
