Maddy's Day

'

Editorial Review

Maddy's Bar and Grille, the comfortable watering hole just north of Dupont Circle, is named after Madeline Shields, the mother of owner Dale Shields. Eight years ago, Madeline Shields lost her battle with cancer. In her memory, the bar celebrates Maddy's Day, where 100 percent of the day's food-and-drink profits are donated to the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University. There's live music from Stephen Heller between 5 and 8, raffles for gift certificates and a special menu. Drop in for happy hour for $4 rail drinks, wines by the glass and selected drafts between 4 and 7.
