The following cartoon was drawn by Charles and was inspired by the famous Checkpoint Charlie in the former East Germany. And for the prize – on Saturday, September 5:

“The First Annual Old Ebbitt Grill Block Party will feature mouth-watering, socializing fare including burgers, lump crab cake sandwiches, beef brisket, shrimp cocktails, brats and more along with thirst-quenching beverages such as beer, wine and frozen cocktails. Sponsors include Miller Lite, Blue Moon, American Wines, Stoli Russian Vodka, Milagro Tequila and Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, and visitors will want to try the White Lemonade, Blue Margarita or Strawberry Daiquiri.

Tickets, which are $65 thru August 1st, $75 thru September 4th and $85 if available the day of the event, can be purchased online here.. Each ticket includes admission and five food and five beverage tickets for a total of 10 tickets with value of over $50. Each menu and beverage item is valued at one food ticket, with the exception of side dishes; guests will have a choice of two side dishes for one food ticket. Additional food and beverage tickets will be available for purchase during the event at $5 for each ticket.

The Old Ebbitt Grill Block Party will take place rain or shine on G Street NW between 14th and 15th Streets on September 5. To purchase tickets, or for more information, please visit here.”
