Pony Pop Up on 14th Street!
Horse-Around Sunday with Constellation Theatre’s Pony Pop Up
In promotion of the upcoming performance of Equus
Sunday, January 17, 2016

UPDATE: Big D’s Pony Rides will be replacing Peppermint Pony as the pony vendor. They will be bringing 2 ponies instead of a pony and a miniature horse. In addition, their sister company, Dream Shire Carriage, coincidentally will be offering carriage rides starting at 12:30pm in front of the Williard Hotel, so make it a horse-themed day.

The Pony Pop Up, happening on the sidewalk in front of the 1835 14th Street, NW, will take place between 12pm and 3pm.

From a press release:

“A new culinary-focused cocktail bar and neighborhood gathering place, Radiator (, will open off of the 14th Street corridor in Spring 2016, adjacent to the new Mason & Rook Hotel at 1430 Rhode Island Ave NW. A classic cocktail bar, Radiator’s drinks selection will focus on a carefully curated range of whiskeys and off-the-beaten path spirits, lovingly crafted classics, and a discerning selection of local beers and wines. The kitchen, led by Chef Jonathan Dearden, formerly of Ardeo + Bardeo, will complement the beverage program with soulful, rustic dishes that span snacks, sharable plates and large-format signature items. Classic bar service will be a Radiator calling card, with the bar trading modernist smoke and mirrors for perfectly executed classics and barkeeps who know your drink after your first visit. (more…)
