Best of Drink DC: 2012 Highlights

2012 was our first full year at Drink DC, and it was a great one. We talked about beer, wine, cocktails and where to find the best. Here’s a recap of the top 10 moments from 2012. Cheers to all for an even better 2013.

The Ultimate Guide to Washington, D.C. Beer Gardens — Our most-visited article is one that won’t do us much good right now, in the dead of winter, but expect an update as spring rolls around; nothing beats a great brew, sipped outdoors.

Where to Watch: Washington, D.C. Bars Showing the Presidential Debates — Election years are always fun in the District. Many of you took part in our city’s favorite sport: watching politicians chat past each other. It goes down better with a drink.

Best Washington, D.C. Brunch Drink Specials — Here’s a roundup you don’t have to wait for warmer weather to take advantage of — bottomless mimosas, Marys and other daytime sippers are good any time of year.

Washington, D.C.'s 10 Hottest Bars of 2012 — Though we only just published this roundup last week, it’s already one of our most popular posts. Do you agree with the picks?

What to Drink at The Hamilton — We took a close look at the (then) new Downtown bar/restaurant/music venue. Though no longer serving drinks through 5 AM, it’s still a solid choice. Have you been?

Tropicalia Coming Soon to U Street — A dance club beneath the subway? Yes, and it seems to be as successful as your interest in our preview post suggested.

4 Reasons Why Thanksgiving Eve is Biggest Drinking Night of the Year — As we approach what is possibly the runner up in this category, check out why New Year’s Eve is not the biggest booze-fest of them all.

Washington, D.C. Bars with Outdoor Seating — Expect an update on this one, as well, because sipping drinks with a freeze breeze and a view is hard to beat.

Where to Find the 5 Best Margaritas in D.C. — Who says it has to be over 70 to feel tropical? Get in the island mood with the five best margaritas in town.

A Chat with Mixtress Gina Chersevani, Mixologist at Hank's Oyster Bar on the Hill — The Mixtress dishes on her plans and philosophy.
