Where Women Can Get 23 Percent Discounts Today


In an effort to bring attention to the wage gap between men and women, a handful of D.C. restaurants and bars are offering 23 percent discounts* today. The idea is to “call attention to the fact that women still make 77 cents to a man’s dollar,” according to local group Lean In DC, which organized the Equal Pay Day promotion. That oft-repeated statistic isn’t entirely accurate, but ladies, that shouldn’t stop you from enjoying these deals on pizza, beer, and more:

Pizzeria Paradiso

All three locations (Dupont, Georgetown, Old Town Alexandria) will offer 23 percent discounts on any size pizza for eat-in orders only when you mention the promotion to a server. 

Boundary Road

The H Street NE restaurant will offer 23 percent off drinks all day (11 a.m. to 1:30 a.m.).

Dacha Beer Garden

Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier and Pilsner are 23 percent off at the Shaw beer garden.

Hank’s Oyster Bar 

The Capitol Hill location will offer 23 percent off drinks from 6 to 8 p.m. Congresswomen Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Rosa DeLauro will join the happy hour. RSVP here.

The Ugly Mug

Look out for specials during lunch and from 9 p.m. until close.

Check out deals at other local businesses here.

*CORRECTION: This story initially stated that the discounts are for women only. However, an organizer corrects that the deals are for "women and their advocates," so fellas, that can include you too.

    Sorry to be a downer, but 2 things:

    1) The linked WSJ piece is an opinion piece, not a report on facts, from conservative scholars opposed to women's equity legislation.

    2) D.C. anti-discrimination laws are very strong and probably require that these deals be honored for people of any sex/gender.

    Plenty of facts within that WSJ opinion article.

    Disregarding facts because you don't like the source is extremely immature.

    The DC Human Rights Act makes it unlawful "To deny, directly or indirectly, any person the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodations" either "wholly or partially for a discriminatory reason based on the actual or perceived: race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, familial status, family responsibilities, genetic information, disability, matriculation, political affiliation, source of income, or place of residence or business of any individual."

    I'm glad these restaurants clarified their policy.

  • Typical DC BS

    @DC Denizen: Bravo. Funny how fiscal facts are anathema to liberal tools.
