“A Vegas Wedding for Charity at the Hot Dog House of Matrimony THURSDAY, JUNE 21st 2018
Ivy and Coney, located at 1537 7th St NW and DC’s #1 Underground Engagement Ring Reseller for five years running, is proud to present it’s latest creation, Vegas Wedding at the Hot Dog House of Matrimony. In a year where the world has turned its attention to nuptials across the pond, we are here to remind people of America’s greatest contribution to marriage, being wed on the fly with no regard for any sort of commitment or future together. Nothing shows our freedom and frivolity more than by getting married to that stranger you met at the casino four hours ago with a ceremony overseen by Elvis as your closest slot machine friends cry and hoot and holler. And we will not stand for this English aggression on our limited attention spans. This most splendid of occasions will start on May 19th (there’s nothing happening that day, right?) and conclude on June 21st with an all out debaucherous final “reception” for charity.
While Megan and Harry tie the knot in front of a crowd of dignitaries and heads of state, you can get married* FOR FREE in front of a crowd of tipsy strangers. That’s right, for free! We will pay for your DC marriage license, provide a licensed officiant, toast your vows with Malort, and chauffeur you through Shaw in our customized somehow-still-running 1977 El Camino.** Who needs a horse-drawn carriage when you can have 4,000 lbs of American steel pull you down 7th street in style?
What is the decor for this most important of events? The bar will be adorned in the finest smells of stale beer and old peanuts, matched with an unrivaled decrepit interior. And how is that different than Ivy and Coney usually? It isn’t. What you’ll get is an authentic wedding cheered on by a bunch of regulars that’ll probably barely look up from their beers and Chicago dogs.
ON JUNE 21ST, The Lord Lieutenant Head Groundskeeper, invites you to cap off this shitshow extravaganza with our annual Charity Gala in support of Bread for the City. All commoners welcome! There will be craps. There will be champagne. There will be blackjack. There will be fantastic raffle prizes. And hopefully, fingers crossed, we will all get to enjoy in the wedding of the first random couple crazy enough to participate in this nonsense. As in years past, 100% of tips and call proceeds go to our amazing friends at Bread for the City, helping them do great work for those in need in DC. TICKETS CAN BE PURCHASED HERE.
This event is brought to you in partnership with the Divorce Attorneys Association of America, Marriage Counselors United, and Rabbi Bet Din’s BOGO Wedding Chapel.
*All marriages will be real. Ivy and Coney will have none of your annulment or divorce nonsense afterwards. Limit one marriage per day (at the bar, not you personally. If you can get married more than once in a day, have at it.)
**Book your marriage reservation by emailing [email protected] . 72 hours notice is required.”
