From Star & Shamrock:

“The Star and Shamrock is less than one week away from kicking off its first-ever, month-long Spring Shenanigans Simcha Festival, launching this coming Wednesday, March 4th, the first night of the Jewish holiday, Purim. Dubbed by the deli/tavern as “the Jewish St. Patrick’s Day”, this particular Jewish holiday is famously celebrated by being drunk on happiness, with the help of lots of good alcohol. In fact, the Talmud even instructs Jewish people to celebrate the holiday as “yemei mishteh v’simchah, days of drinking and rejoicing” (Esther 9:22). With guidelines like that, this is clearly a holiday for people of all faiths. Staying true to its Irish-Jewish namesake, Star and Shamrock is setting course to mark this “Jewish St. Patrick’s Day” with a Purim Party packed with as much revelry as its upcoming Irish one.

The festivities will begin at 7:00 pm on the evening of 4th, featuring a wide-range of menu specials, drink specials, live entertainment, and even a costume contest, throughout the course of the evening. Given the drinking-centric nature of the holiday, the event will be held in partnership with the popular Shmaltz Brewing Company, whose brewing industry celebrity founder, Jeremy Cowan, will be onsite for a He’Brew “Tap Takeover”.

From an email:

“Kelly’s Irish Times is proud to announce the completion of their new whiskey bar! Owner Brendan Kelly revamped the back portion of the Capitol Hill pub to make room for a large new bar dedicated to one of his favorite spirits. A welcome addition to the historic venue, the new whiskey bar boasts an extensive and well-rounded beverage menu that features 23 Irish Whiskeys, 29 Kentucky Bourbons, 22 varieties of Scotch and 16 Ryes.

The menu was designed to appeal to whiskey fanatics and newbies alike. While all whiskies are priced and served as 2 oz. pours, 1 oz. pours are available at half price upon request (perfect for guests who want to sample something new or those who simply don’t want to pick between their favorite spirits.)

The redesign also includes the addition of a semi-private party space adjacent to the new whiskey bar, which allows private party attendees to enjoy the energy of the boisterous bar while still having a reserved space.”

If you have any animal/pet photos you’d like to share please send an email to princeofpetworth(at)gmail(dot)com with ‘Animal Fix’ in the title and say the name of your pet and your neighborhood. Your photos will go into the queue (usually 6-8 weeks wait) and will be posted in the order I receive them. If you’ve already entered your pet and would like to do so again – that’s no problem – just space the entries out a bit. Please try to send horizontal photos 640×480 (medium size on your iphone) if possible. If you’re not using an iphone any size is fine.
