emPower Happy Hour

Editorial Review

On the first Thursday of the month, emPower magazine hosts a happy hour at Tabaq that benefits a local non-profit. It's a win-win situation: Groups receive 10 percent of all drink sales and they can also use the event to collect donations or supplies. At July's happy hour, for example, Books for America is asking patrons to bring new or gently used books, which will be donated to youth centers, inner-city libraries, hospitals and shelters. So grab a book off your bookshelf (or pick one up on the way to U Street) and enjoy a cocktails for a good cause.
