Washington, DC

Temperance back room, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

It is very rare that Fox 5 news and I are on the same wavelength but today we were. After a long day of golf I wanted to put some pictures up of Temperance Hall. Well, I learned that Fox 5 had just preceded me. Unfortunately the light was streaming in the windows so I couldn’t really get good pictures. But what I can say, without reservation, is that Temperance Hall is the greatest bar in Washington, DC! Now, I say this for a few reasons. First of all, if you are a Petworth resident, it is like going to your living room. Most of the patrons are Petworth residents and there is just a really chill vibe in the air. Secondly, and perhaps more importantly to me, the bartender Sott had played a couple of Drive By Truckers songs. That in and of itself is worthy of a hight rating. Also I had a grilled cheese sandwhich with mustard, tomato and french fries for $5 which was fantastic! But honestly as you can see in the picture there is a pool table, chandeliers, stained glass, and really really good people and food. What more could you ask for?
