A little less fanfare than when they turned ten but the special will be Russell’s choice according to Tony T. I’ll echo what I said last year and will hopefully echo many years into the future – Congrats to the one of the best that has quietly and consistently made D.C., the real D.C., a better place to live and work. And drink. And have fun.
