The Founding Fathers held their initial meetings in a neighborhood tavern, which explains why the Declaration of Independence's first draft had a long, rambling subsection devoted to how powdered wigs are a natural icebreaker. Revolt against the tyranny of boredom with today's Groupon: for $20, you get two admission bundles to the First Annual Foggy Bottom Bar Tour sponsored by Brew Crew DC on Saturday, October 1 (a $40 value). The crawl runs from 3 to 11 p.m., and all participants must register at FoBoGro between 3 p.m. and 8 p.m before they begin the tour. Bundles for two include:
- Two general admissions
- Two drink tickets
- Two T-shirts
Participants in the First Annual Foggy Bottom Bar Tour undertake a 10-bar odyssey through historic Foggy Bottom's most diverse and lively bars featuring specials on fare and drink. Duos can sample microbrews, wines, and ambrosia siphoned from Apollo's chariot at Tonic, then walk to The 51st State Tavern to pick up a game of pool and nosh on pub fare amidst exposed brick walls. Froggy Bottom Pub & Restaurant hosts revelers with its characteristic mix of upscale eats and psychedelic wall art, encouraging relaxed conversation amongst friends and anthropomorphic amphibians. Nick's Riverside Grill throws the after-party, proffering food and drink with a backdrop of the Potomac's eddying currents.
