From a press release:

“Run ·F·R·I·E·N·D·S· Run to the Heurich House Museum’s 90’s-themed 125th backyard birthday bash. The Heurich mansion was completed 125 years ago in 1894 and the museum is celebrating by partying like it’s 1994 this Saturday, June 22nd from 1-4pm!

There will be 90’s party favors, a birthday cake, and local beer from RaR Brewing, and without a doubt 1994 Top 40 hits on the boombox. The museum highly encourages guests to dig out their 90’s threads – bring a lawn chair and a few friends.

The event will also feature a taste test (1-2pm) of the most historically and scientifically accurate beer revival, Senate Beer – a DC hometown favorite originally produced by the Chr. Heurich Brewing Co. The museum plans to release the beer to the public this fall. (more…)

It is for others to judge whether we achieved this, but for as long as we have been here we have become the first port of call for so many Irish and other visitors to DC including a great number of politicians, diplomats and journalists.
