From Ivy & Coney:

“Ivy and Coney, DC’s premier baseball bar, is proud to announce the third annual Chai-vy and Cohen-y Hanukkah Bar: Bar Mitzvah1. Bar. Mitzvah (We invite you to let our amazing wordplay sink in for a moment). From December 2nd through New Years’ Eve of the year ​5780​, the Manischewitz shall flow, the dreidels shall spin and fun will be had by all. While some may prefer their holiday festivities as “Christmas-with-a-baseball-twist”, we’re pitching ours as “Baseball-with-a-Hanukkah-fastball.” Simply put, it’s gonna be meshuga2.

In honor of our holiday that involves actual fire (not just some wimpy string lights and pine trees), we’ve added delicious ​latkes​, ​sufgani-shots​ (jelly donut in shot form), ​8-night fiery cider​ (Hint: it starts with fire and ends in ball) and ​Manischewitz​’s finest kosher wines to the menu. Latkes, arguably the most important culinary creation since unleavened bread, will feature prominently as a reminder of both that the oil used to light the menorah in the holy temple and that fried foods truly are the tastiest. Each night we will be lighting the Hanukiyah at approximately 7:30 PM (December 22nd through the 29th) and invite our guests to participate. Read More
