“Dear PoPville,

Tonight is another edition of Jazz in the Garden at the National Gallery, apparently the only place to be in DC on a Friday evening in summer, thus long lines for drinks, food & bathrooms. My question for you: While I know that bringing your own adult beverages is frowned upon, even “prohibited” according to the rules posted at the entrance gate, do they actually enforce not bringing your own alcohol into the park? I’ve been there and never had a problem with quietly and discreetly drinking our own wine, but recently friends have told me that they are starting to check people’s bags at the door? Has anyone else heard of this happening?”
