There’s now a Restaurant Week for drinking: Cocktail Week. Today though Nov. 17, nearly 50 restaurants and bars across the city—from Graffiato to Hank’s Oyster Bar to Room 11—will offer specials and featured drinks as part of a new promotion from the Restaurant Association Metropolitan Washington and Washington City Paper.
There’s also a contest for bar-hoppers. Here’s how it works: Download the Cocktail Week game board, which has different “trails” with bars and restaurants organized by types of spirits and neighborhoods. Then get stickers for your game board at each stop. Once you visit all the stops on your selected trail, you can scan and email the game board to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail it to Washington City Paper, 1400 I St. NW, Suite 900, Washington, D.C. 20005 to enter to win prizes.
Prizes include concert tickets, movie tickets, $50 restaurant gift cards, 10 two-pound lobsters with free delivery, and tickets to the RAMMYS with hotel and car service. The winners, chosen at random, will be notified via email and announced in the Nov. 21 issue of City Paper.
