DGS Deli – Highway to the Danger Zone: Cocktails of the 80’s Party Tonight

1317 Connecticut Avenue, NW

From an email:

“The second Delicatessen After Dark — Highway to the Danger Zone: Cocktails of the 80’s— will take place on Thursday, April 24th from 8pm to late at the DGS Bar. Come imbibe on $10 specialty cocktails with our extraordinary Bar Man Brian Zipin.

Many believe the 1980’s was the dark ages for drinking. Some cocktails were great, some were not so great; we are picking our favorites and giving them the respect they deserve. We will change the way you think about a Midori Sour, Fuzzy Navel or Cosmopolitan (full menu below).

Our resident Pit Master Brian Robinson, aka DJ Pork and Beans, will spin some classic 80’s tunes. To celebrate, come donned in 80’s era clothes. There will be an award given for the best 80’s outfit. The grand prize is a collection of classic 80’s movies.

Delicatessen After Dark is a celebration of the new delicatessen drinking culture inspired by our grandparent’s long nights in Lower East side taverns, winter getaways to Florida and jazzy escapades to the Catskills. Delicatessen After Dark will take place on the last Thursday of every month and focus on a new style, era or spirit.

No reservations required.”
