You have until tomorrow to vote on a name for the National Zoo's baby panda. If you have particularly strong feelings toward Mulan or Zhen Bao, now you can express them by drinking. The lobby bar at the Marriott Wardman Park, located a couple blocks from the zoo, is getting in on the panda hype with cocktails named after the cub's potential names. One dollar from each cocktail purchased will go to Friends of the National Zoo.  The winning name will be announced Dec. 1, but the cocktails will be available until Dec. 31. Check out the drink menu below.
