Checking in on Cause the Philanthropub coming to 1926 9th St, NW


1926 9th St, NW

Back in March we learned that Cause was going to move into the old La Carbonara space at 1926 9th St, NW. While they’re still a couple months away from opening, they’ve made a lot of progress renovating the space (which they’re doing themselves!) For those who don’t recall, Cause:

is a bar like you’ve never seen. We call it a PhilanthroPub. It works like this:

Step 1: You come to Cause; eat, drink, and be merry

Step 2: Cause pays its staff, covers all operating costs

Step 3: Cause takes ALL of the remaining profit, and gives it to vetted nonprofit organizations

If you’d like to donate you can do so here, you can get your own barstool, table or beer for a year if you’re feeling very generous. They’ve raised over $15,000 and counting.

Here’s a peek inside the space:

We precision roast high-quality beans sourced from small farms in Latin America and Africa that are owned and operated by women. We will make sure that your coffee is roasted the way you want it and delivered fresh.

Our newest coffee comes from Mbozi, Tanzania. We secured a shipment just before this small batch of delicious beans sold out. In Swahili, Usawa means balance and Kahawa means coffee. The beans are grown on small farms that are part of a cooperative promoting gender equity and market access for women. This is a smooth and balanced coffee that is sure to please.

Join local sketch comedy legends (in our own minds) Brick Penguin for an evening of live, dark, rip-roaring sketch comedy. See D.C.’s longest-running sketch comedy group do what they do best, when they’re not performing across the country in places such as the terrifying Philadelphia, the gooey Chicago, the M&M Store-y New York City, and the crunchy Seattle.

Now, our last show may or may not have mentioned Taylor Swift, and we may have gotten into some trouble from confused Swifties who thought they scored a $15 ticket to a Taylor Swift concert. So, to apologize and clear up any confusion, we’ve decided to dedicate another show to her. We promise she might or might not appear this time.
