We know D.C. Get our free newsletter to stay in the know.

In case you haven’t been following it, two of our intrepid staffers have been braving the mean streets of D.C. during happy hour in a selfless service to our beloved readers. During the month of April, the Corcoran Gallery of Art’s 1869 Society is hosting a contest in which 15 area restaurants have designed “artinis.” You’re supposed to hop around, drink these concoctions, and then vote for them. And there’s, of course, a big ole party to unveil the winner. Well, our very own Ted and Brian are giving you previews of what to expect in a video blog! I highly recommend checking out their artini blog.
