This would be the Westin Arlington Gateway hotel bar, Pinzimini, where DC Metroblogging had a happy hour last night on the recommendation of one of the writers.
He likes it because it’s a mellow place, and I have to agree. It sure is mellow. The photo at right is exactly how it looked on a Friday night.
Even with few people there, Pinzimini wasn’t all that. The $8 rail (!) drinks are served slow, the bar is out of napkins and limes (on a Friday!), and I had to request our table be cleared of two rounds of pre-us detritus.
Note to those who cross the river voluntarily: ixnay on Pinzimini-ay.
