What To Eat Tonight: Cheap Wings At Cap Lounge, Cheap Coffee at Union Station

A lot has changed at Capitol Lounge over the years. A 2005 fire consumed much of the kitschy decor, including a vast collection of soccer scarfs and political paraphernalia adorning the walls.

Employees of charred Capitol Hill institution the Tune Inn will benefit from not one but two charity fundraisers. Beyond Friday's benefit, another one, featuring the musings of local comics, is scheduled for next week at neighboring watering hole Capitol Lounge—an apt location, given the previous fires at that place.

Wednesday’s Beerspotter Picks for D.C. Beer Week

Readers have been quick to point out that not all Beer Week events are created equal. While draft rarities and discount specials are always welcome, a $5 pint hardly constitutes a special night unto itself, even if D.C. drink prices often approach Ticketmaster-level robbery. The best things in life are free, so start with some […]
