Whaley’s gets wintery
So long, rosé garden. Hello, warm cider drinks and s’mores. Navy Yard fixture Whaley’s is switching things up this season with a new rum cart inside (think: build-your-own Old Fashioneds), as well an outdoor area stocked with fire pits, blankets, and hot drinks. [Washingtonian]
