Cool Down, Drink Up

Happy hour

Editorial Review

Did you read Dan Zak's recent Style piece on the dueling conservative and liberal happy hours on Capitol Hill? ("The happy hours look and feel identical on the surface: a mob of racially diverse 20- and 30-somethings prowling for discounted booze and lucrative conversation that may lead to a new and better job [or, simply, a job].") Some First Friday regulars are hosting a special (and allegedly nonpartisan, but still right-leaning) happy hour this week at Union Pub called Cool Down, Drink Up. Stop by between 5:30 and 9 for happy hour food and drink specials and, according to the invite, "networking or just not-working." It'll beat the same-old Friday scene at the Lounge or Pour House, and since there's no Tune Inn ... well, what have you got to lose?
