14th and T Street, NW
From an email:
“In 2003, the 14th Street Corridor was far from the bustling culinary destination it is today. Cafe Saint-Ex has been a steady cornerstone in the neighborhood for the past 15 years, and they’re celebrating this milestone with a Big Birthday BBQ Blowout on Sunday, May 13th from 4pm til close. From 4 – 9pm, guests can purchase a $15 food wristband for all you can eat food from the grill on the patio, as well as a $15 wristband good for unlimited pours of select Brooklyn Beer and Sam Adams beers (while supplies last). Both wristbands come with a raffle ticket for the chance to win fun prizes. Gate 54 will host a rousing round of karaoke from 7:30 til around 10pm when a DJ takes over the decks to dance our way til closing time.
The Birthday BBQ Blowout kicks off a series of monthly Patio Sessions at Saint-Ex. Future dates include:
June 17 – Father’s Day BBQ with DC Brau
July 22 – Featuring Altos Tequila
August 26 – A Dog Day Afternoon celebrating National Dog Day featuring Dogfish Head (four-legged friends welcome!)
September 30 – Annual 14th Street Burger Bash
On Sundays when there is no official “patio session,” guests will enjoy Bucket Sundays with specials on beer buckets and buckets of fried chicken.
Saint-Ex is also excited to announce the start of its weekly Monday Night Yappy Hours on the Patio. Starting Monday, May 14th, bring your dog with you for drinks and/or dinner and enjoy happy hour specials all night long.”
