The 5pm Post – 6th Anniversary of Capitol Lounge Fire – Party Tonight

From a press release:

On Tuesday August 30, Capitol Lounge at 231 Pennsylvania Avenue, SE will celebrate the anniversary of the fire that closed its doors six years ago. To commemorate the anniversary, Capitol Lounge will be offering specials (including 25 cent wings) all day leading up to the grand event which will begin at 7pm. The main event will feature the first annual Fire Breathing Wing Eating contest, where ten lucky contestants will vie for the title of Wing King (or Queen). Royalty will be endowed upon he/she who successfully consumes the most wings in a ten minute period.

In addition to claiming royal domain, the ultimate winner of the contest will receive a prize package worth $600, including gift certificates, sporting tickets, concert tickets, and the best part: his/her name engraved on a special plaque that will hang in perpetuity on the walls of the Capitol Lounge.

While the wing contest is open to all, only ten contestants will be chosen, at random, for participation. To enter the contest, visit

Capitol Lounge will also be accepting donations on behalf of the DC Firefighters Burn Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) non- profit that provides assistance and support to firefighters (and their family members) who have been hospitalized by burn injuries sustained in the line of duty.

I can’t believe it’s been 6 years already…
