D.C. bars and restaurants are getting into the Pride spirit again this year with lively bottomless brunches, color-soaked cocktails for the cause, and over-the-top parties this weekend.
One of the biggest parties is Urbana’s “Pride + Shine” all-day soiree — the starting point of Saturday’s Capital Pride Parade at 4:30 p.m. at 21st and P Streets NW. This year’s celebration marks the 50th anniversary of the historic uprising at New York City’s Stonewall Inn that sparked activism for gay rights around the world.
DC Brau’s yellow Pride Pils cans, available across the city from now through Sunday, June 9, feature LGBTQ activist and Stonewall icon Marsha P. Johnson and benefit the Blade Foundation and SMYAL (a release party is at Dacha in Shaw on Thursday, June 6). Other ongoing Pride promotions include Sweetgreen’s Pride T-shirt sales going towards homeless nonprofit Covenant House, and Alexandria’s Brabo Brasserie will donate $1 from each Rainbow Baked Alaska sold all month to The Trevor Project.
