All these poolside happy hours had us flashing back to one of our favorite happy hours of yesteryear -- Twilight, held on the roof of the Embassy Row Hilton. Great view of from Dupont Circle to Virginia, summery tunes, fresh food coming off the grill, a small bar serving frozen drinks and a small pool to lounge beside or dip your feet in. Tonight, the International Club of D.C. is hosting a happy hour atop the Hilton, and the formula is staying the same. Admission is $5 in advance if you register at internationalclubdc.com or $7 if you just show up.
