The week in bars: anniversaries and openings

Today, August 6 - Commonwealth Gastropub turns one
Commonwealth is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a pulled pork sandwich and beer special for $12. Stop by between 5 and 11 pm. Happy hour runs from 4 to 7 pm and 10 to 11:30 pm.

Thursday - Room 11 preview
We'll be checking out Room 11 in the evening and will have photos, thoughts from the owners, and perhaps a punch recipe or two on Friday. The wine bar opens to the public on Monday, August 10.

Sunday - Wonderland turns five
Has it really been five years? I remember sitting at the bar and humbly drinking $2 Yuenglings like it was yesterday. Looks like I'll be doing the same this weekend. Matt tells The Washington Post:
"We're taking it back to when we first opened," with $2 Yuengling beers all day (including the pleasant Lord Chesterfield Ale), live music, and happy hour prices from 5 to close. Stick around for the annual toast with the champagne of beers.
Monday - Social preview
Once again, we'll post photos, menu previews, and whatever else we can get. The 14th and Meridian spot opens to the public on August 17.

Anything else coming up? Let us know in the comments or send an e-mail to
