From the inbox: Celebrate Scots tonight and Block Captain training next week

Room 11 is hosting another celebration tonight for those who want to extend the Thanksgiving festivities just a little longer. Stop by for its Scotland's National Holiday, St. Andrew's Day, from 5 pm to closing. Writes bar manager Dan:

We'll have guest tap Brooklyn Winter Ale, a Scotch-style Ale (think dark rich and malty) on draft while it lasts. From 8:30 to 10 pm Scottish gin Hendrick's will be offering free samples and free shoeshines! We'll also have Scotch whiskey and cocktail specials from Compass Box and we'll declare the winner of the Highland Bitters Scottish Cocktail Smackdown. Will the Mel Gibson (Hendrick's Martini with house-made Highland Bitters and a house-pickled onion) or the Liam Neeson (Compass Box Asyla with sweet and dry vermouth and house-made Highland Bitters) emerge victorious.

Next week on Tuesday, Dec. 8 the Northwest Columbia Heights Community Association will be hosting a block captain training session for the neighborhood watch program. To RSVP, please e-mail by Sunday, December 6. More information about the neighborhood watch is available from MPD.
