From an email:

“I’m excited to share that Pennsylvania 6 DC [1350 I Street, NW] will be launching its brunch menu this Saturday, January 16.

The unique element to this brunch will be the Champagne Bar which will be held in the chandelier-dripping, Oxford Room. The Champagne Bar will be flowing with mixers and garnishes such as tropical juices, artisan elixers like elderflower syrups and delectable fruit slices. Not your typical bottomless brunch but more of an upscale champagne tasting with contemporary American brunch fare. (more…)
