UD - Bourbon, from the Barrel to the Spout

TAP DANCE

Bourbon, from the Barrel to the Spout

Now on tap alongside your favorite beers at Jack Rose: single-barrel bourbon. The specific whiskey will change, but for now, it’s Willett Orange Blossom Special bourbon. And coming soon: taps dispensing barrel-aged Negronis and Manhattans. Next thing you know, they’ll be putting beer in bottles.

UD - Midnight Classics at E Street Cinema

E STREET SHUFFLE

Midnight Classics at E Street Cinema

All that free-flowing bourbon may have you primed for some classic film noir. Good thing E Street Cinema is kicking off its midnight movie series with The Maltese Falcon. In weeks to come, you can catch The Hustler, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and Dazed and Confused. So classic film noir.
411:
Starts Mar 9, midnight, Landmark E Street Cinema, 555 11th St NW, 202-452-7672
UD - All-Night Menu Debuts at Kitchen2404

411:
Fri-Sat starting Mar 9, 11pm-6am, Kitchen2404, 2404 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-333-3387, see the menu
