From a press release:
“Buffalo Billiards, one of DC’s most iconic sports bar since 1994, will host a farewell party on August 24 from noon until close. The bittersweet occasion will celebrate 25 years of legendary memories with special Buffalo Billiards memorial t-shirts and giveaways. The event will also feature a Buffalo Billiards photo/selfie wall, music and entertainment, and special pours from Board Room Brewing Company. In July 2019, it was announced that Buffalo Billiards will close as the new landlord, WeWork, did not wish to renew the bar’s lease. Read More
