Adventures in Drinking

Adams Morgan watering hole Town Tavern is transforming into a Harry Potter-themed pub for the rest of October. Media reports say butterbeer will flow at the Three Broomsticks Bar and that Quidditch-style beer pong tournaments are in the works. “A Very Potter Tavern” is expected to run through Halloween.

Controversies

Washingtonian reports on concerned neighbors rallying against local beer garden Dacha’s proposed expansion to the 14th Street corridor. “The new Dacha, they argue unanimously, will only further increase the already high concentration of drunk people in the area, and all the problems that come along with them,” the writer says following a contentious hearing before the alcoholic beverage control board held earlier this week.
