Where to Drink on Labor Day Weekend in DC

Where to Drink on Labor Day Weekend in DC

Celebrate Labor Day with some decidedly unlaborious plans this year. Whether you decide to raise your Bellini at brunch or take your cocktails tiki style, we suggest gathering the guys (or gals) for one of these Labor Day weekend events  — because the only work you should be doing is downing bottomless bevvies and end-of-summer sips.

Tiki Thursday
5–10 PM, Thursday, August 29
Jack Rose Dining Saloon (2007 18th St. NW)
What better to say sayonara to summer than with tiki drinks and Polynesian bites? Both are half off on Thursday evenings at this Adams Morgan spot’s new tiki bar. Not feeling tropical? Get $2 off draft beer, too.

Jazz in the Garden
5–8:30 PM, Friday, August 30
National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden
The annual tradition draws to a close with Bruno Nasta jazz violin and the U.S. Navy Commodores Jazz Ensemble, accompanied by the Pavilion Cafe’s legendary pitchers of sangria.

Rosslyn Outdoor Film Festival
Sundown; Friday, August 30
Gateway Park
“Grease” is the word and the last screening in Rosslyn’s Outdoor Film Festival this summer — get your picnic fix and BYO to Gateway Park.

Labor Day Sunday Brunch
10:30 AM, Sunday, September 1
Lincoln (1110 Vermont Ave. NW)
Giant punch bowls of Champagne cocktails? Yes, please. Go bottomless for $19 or share a bowl with friends for $34; the build-a-biscuit and all-you-can-eat Chef’s Station will fuel your day-drinking celebration.

Spiked Milkshakes and Brunch All Day
Monday, September 2
Ted’s Bulletin (1818 14th St. NW)
Now that the 14th Street location of this old-fashioned diner is now open, take advantage of all-day breakfast (and the glorious adult milkshakes) no matter what time you wake up on Monday. Of note: In addition to offering the usual homemade pop tarts and cinnamon rolls “as big as ya head,” this location makes in-house doughnuts, too.

Labor Day Bottomless Brunch
10:30 AM–3 PM, Monday, September 2; $34
El Centro D.F. (1819 14th St. NW)
Labor your way through endless small plates, breakfast tacos,empanadas and molletes as well as bottomless Micheladas, Bloody Marias or agua fresca cocktails at Richard Sandoval’s taqueria and tequileria.

Hill Country Live Presents Warren Hood Band
9 PM, Monday, September 2
Hill Country DC (410 7th St. NW)
Enjoy free tunes from a fiddle virtuoso while taking advantage of Monday’s all-you-can-eat special for $22. Wash it down with $20 pitchers of Shiner (available all day), and go early to enjoy happy hour specials ($3 PBRs, $5 well drinks and $5 margaritas) from 3–7 PM.
