Welcome to We Love Drinks: MAN EDITION (imagine the title with with like flames and motorcycles around it. That’s how I picture it in my head, anyways.) Jenn has graciously handed me the reins this month to take you all on a more masculine version of her beloved feature. I’ll be leading you all on what is, for me, the ideal man-night in DC.
Man nights can take many forms. There’s the cheap beer and wings version at a sports bar, there’s the suits and scotch edition at a cigar bar, there’s the more sodden bachelor party iteration, and each has its place. My version is somewhere in the middle. It’s not classy, but not frattish, not too raucous, but not boring. Consider it the business casual pub crawl of man-nights.
First of all, some ground rules: no phone calls with women, no sissy drinks, no dancing, no personal vehicles, keep the list of bars short and local. Follow these and you’ll be much happier, safer, and richer by the end of the evening. For this man night, I’m keeping in the U St., Columbia Heights, Adams Morgan area of town. It’ll keep transport costs low and leave you more time for desired man activities.
