Seriously. There’s gotta be an OJ chase caliber event times 1000 (God forbid) to change my mind. Seriously.
But if bars aren’t your scene – these should be lit too – from the Nationals:
“For the first time in 86 years, a D.C. baseball team is in the World Series! Last night, the Nationals found out that they will be playing the Houston Astros in the Fall Classic, beginning with Game 1 on Tuesday, October 22 and Game 2 on Wednesday, October 23.
Even though the first two games will be played at Minute Maid Park in Houston, everyone in the DMV is invited to come out to a watch party at Nationals Park on both nights! Read More

Everyday I drive down Florida and up 18th. For the past 3 (?) years the northeast corner there has been converted from a wine store to what was supposed to be a bar. The rumor was the bar would connect to Jack Rose underground. We have watched the progress for years and it still looks like they aren’t close. The past few weeks I haven’t seen any construction crews. Do you know anything about this or if it is on hold? We are so curious in our family and talk about it almost every day!”
This is of course The Imperial from the Jack Rose folks coming to the old De Vinos and Dahlak spaces. When I walked past last weekend there was a rip in the paper and they really do look super close: Read More

label for “86 Years is a hazy double IPA double dry-hopped with Galaxy”
Here’s one from Bluejacket (300 Tingey Street, SE): “The Navy Yard brewery will tap a brand-new double IPA for the occasion: 86 Years. A reference to how long it’s been since a Washington baseball team has made it to the World Series, 86 Years is a hazy double IPA double dry-hopped with Galaxy – it’s a juicy fruit bomb of a brew that shows intense notes of passionfruit, peach and orange, and it goes on draft Tuesday in time for Game 1. Plus, we’ll have the following food + beer specials available during watch parties for all away games:
Solidarity Brew 2019 – Kellerbier
Controlling Interest – Golden Ale
For The Company
Palace at 4am
Cheddar & Togarashi Popcorn $4
Smoky Onion Rings with curry mayo $5
Fried Chicken Bites with fermented chili aioli $7
Peel & Eat Shrimp with old bay, charred lemon aioli $12
Short Rib Nachos with beer cheese, black beans, pico de gallo, sour cream $10”
Standby for many more. With likely late hours too.
“Congratulations to the Washington Nationals for sweeping the 2019 National League Championship Series and clinching their first trip to the World Series!

Thanks to all who passed on the sad news from The Pinch:

We’ve enjoyed our time spent here in Columbia Heights and getting to know our neighbors and friends and would love to see you all before we go! Our last night will be Tuesday 10/22/19!“

Outside of the standard Bullpen or The Brig (which I do love) it would be cool for a couple options for outdoor/projection screen watch party spots. I will say the Viewing at Nats Park last night was awesome, but not paying for regular priced concessions.”
