Bar Food Bites: Scion’s Happy Hour

Scion in Dupont Cirlce is just the type of restaurant I adore: It under-promises and over-delivers. The dining room and bar area feel claustrophobic—a depressing drop ceiling, some obsolete décor, and a row of fussy light fixtures—but recently Scion hosted one of the best happy hour deals in the city: a burger and a pint […]

The Best Things In Life Aren’t Free, Bar Food Included

I’m pretty sure I encountered my first happy hour on a family vacation with my mother and sister.  We stopped at a hotel to get some rest before the next day’s epic drive, and the bar just off the hotel lobby advertised drink specials and a free buffet.  Just off an all-day fast food bender, […]

For Three Hours a Day, Mandu Takes On an Air of Annandale

When the weather’s cool and there’s a nice breeze, I’m much more motivated to walk home on the last portion of my mass-transit commute. My route takes me up 18th Street NW and through Dupont Circle, where I’m tempted to grab an outdoor table at Mandu. I love that the patio faces west, and the […]
