“Low-income DC women on the brink of maternity care crisis:
Two area hospitals shutting down and one drastically cutting maternal child health services, leaving many low-income women with no local options for maternity care.”

WASHINGTON, DC: A confluence of recent events have triggered a crisis that will leave thousands of Washington, D.C. women with little or no access to obstetrical care.
Policymakers have yet to address the problem. A coalition of women’s health care providers is coming together to attempt to identify ways to divert these women to other providers and identify possible resources before the District faces a wave of emergency births to women with limited to no access to proper prenatal care.

From a press release:

Winter has come and gone for Drink Company, and the team is poised to celebrate fall and fright in PUB DREAD all October long. The season is ripe for horror, which will dominate the spaces that previously hosted Cherry Blossom PUB, Game of Thrones PUB, and Miracle on 7th Street (1839-1843 7th Street NW).

PUB DREAD from Drink Company on Vimeo.

Co-owner Derek Brown says, “For us, Halloween is the perfect foil to create a pop-up space–you’ve got horror, camp and pop-culture all wrapped in one season. We’ve gone all out with this one and, from the decor to the drinks, I think Halloween heads are going to rejoice. Plus, you get to wear your costume 31 days this year, which is a total bonus.”

At PUB Dread, guests will celebrate Halloween for 31 day straight with cocktails like The Dead Will Walk the Earth and We All Float Down Here in the discomfort of The Haunted Woods and The Dollhouse. Expect plenty of frightful surprises that will challenge you to hold onto your drink. (more…)
