Bad news, brohans: McFadden’s has canceled its controversial “Drink Like A Indian” (sic) promotion. In an email Friday night, the Pennsylvania Avenue bar apologized, sort of:
It has come to our attention that one of our Thanksgiving events has caused some concern to our guests. The Pilgrims and Indians party, originally scheduled for Tuesday November 20th, was intended to be a festive event to get into the holiday spirit, and was never meant to offend any ethnicity or group of individuals.

If you’re disappointed about the disappearance of the dollar beer deal, don’t worry. The bar is offering a “complimentary cocktail hour” instead from 8 p.m. to 9.
As long as McFadden’s is rethinking its existing event themes, may I nominate Flannel Saturdays? Slogan: “Everyone looks good in flannel…”
