Day 11 and 12: Miller Lite Specials
editor note: in college I was too good to drink Miller Lite. Why would I drink Miller Lite when Bud Light cost the same? but it seems that Miller Lite is the only beer here that has specials. It's weird sometimes you can find a can of PBR that cost more than a bottle of Miller.
On Friday I decided my thing was going to be happy hours with my coworkers.
Sure, I had Friday off and it isn’t a real exciting “event” but I can count the amount of times I’ve done happy hour on one hand. And a couple of week’s back we went out after work for a coworker’s birthday, had a good time, and decided to do it again.
After a week of debate we decided on Buffalo Billiards in Dupont Circle. My knowledge of Dupont Circle is literally none. I don’t live close to the area and I live right by Adams Morgan –if I was going to go to a bar by myself it would be one close to where I live, not a 15 min walk away-
On Friday people started showing up around 6:30, and by that time I was already on my 2nd HH Miller Lite and already consumed half of my cheesy fries. Yuuummm.
All and all it was a good night. We played pool, talked about work eye candy, drank, ate, wondered around, and eventually departed ways.
around 9 Allison and I left and headed over to Columbia Station in Adams Morgan (and I already expressed how much I love their nightly free jazz)
There I had my first “small town DC” experience. We ran into a guy who use to work with Allison and who I met in September. (he has an amazing cool job and basically plays on social media sites all day. You can see his twitter here.)
We enjoyed a glass of wine and the amazing jazz they have.
After about an hour we decided to head home. - I came to the conclusion that the wine made us ridiculously tired-
That night when I woke up 4am. I decided drinking wine after a good handful of beers is not a good idea.
Anti-Valentine’s day bar event.
In my 28things fashion I decided to hit up the Washington post events page to see what was going on Saturday. I came across a bar event that mentioned something about a giant shredder to shred old love letters. And I thought. Hell Yes! This sound like an awesome event!
The bar -bottom line- was located next to a bunch of business in the Farrgut West area and was right next to a random bar that had intense lights, a line to get in, and a bunch of girls not wearing coats and pants waiting to get in. (not to mention that the traffic in this area was crazy)
When we arrived I didn’t see a gigantic shredder that was advertised –but I also didn’t ask- but they did have 2.50 bottles of Miller Lite and you could win a trip to Lake Tahoe.
The crowd itself was interesting and was this weird mix of old and young people. Some people might describe it as a townie bar, but it was in the middle of a business district… so that doesn’t really make sense.
But by the end of the night I had fun. They only charged me for 4 Miller Lites and they were sending around a sheet of paper where you could diss your ex…. This was awesome all by itself.
On our walk back home we wondered into a new bar/restaurant called “Fiesta.” I automatically thought of college and Fiesta Mexico with their cheap margaritas.
This place was not as cool and their margaritas tasted like cheap margarita mix.
I do not think I'll be going back to "Fiesta" anytime soon.
