Flying Dog v. Marion Barry

Yesterday Flying Dog Brewery tweeted an image poking fun at D.C. Councilman Marion Barry's former improprieties.

Perhaps not […]

Get ready for a boozy weekend. On Saturday, a bunch of the District's craftiest bartenders are throwing their yearly bash, the 4th Annual Repeal Day Ball, celebrating the 78th anniversary of the end of prohibition—about as good of an excuse to drink as any. Then, on Sunday, the best female bartenders in town will be […]

What Are D.C.’s Most Worker-Friendly Restaurants? (Hint: Not Clyde’s)

A national restaurant workers’ organization on Thursday unveiled a handy new dining guide.
