Speaking of fireworks, I always get lots of queries about this one as it’s starting. Good reminder from the Nationals:
“Since Nationals Park opened its gates in 2008, July 3rd fireworks have become a tradition here in the team’s Navy Yard home. Fans are invited to stay after the 6:05 p.m. game to enjoy this year’s edition of the Freedom Fireworks show!”

“To All DMV Residents, Dacha Customers and Fans,
An article was published yesterday regarding our business, and we wish to set the record straight.
Most importantly, there is an automatic service charge on all bills at Dacha, but every single dollar brought in through this method is returned to Dacha’s employees. Because this “automatic gratuity” or “service charge” is imposed on all guest checks, we have the flexibility of using this money to benefit all employees, including back of the house and support staff, who typically do not share in traditional tips.
