SHAW— The Shaw Bijou is making a comeback Monday night. Bartenders Zac Hoffman and Ben Long are invited to man Espita Mezcaleria’s bar to make five top cocktails they served at the nearby newly-shuttered restaurant. “We've invited all the people that have been really supportive of us in the aftermath,” says Hoffman. “It's really about coming together as a city and supporting our colleagues and not letting the negativity go on.” The event starts at 5 p.m. at 1250 9th St. NW.
