No matter what side of the aisle you lean towards, there’s one thing everyone in DC can get behind… food and drink specials. As the 58th Presidential Inauguration gets underway, these restaurants and bars will be offering up discounted drinks and snacks worthy of a weekend visit.

Alfa Piehouse
Steps from the White House, the fast-casual Greek restaurant will offer Inauguration Day specials, including an 8oz cup of La Colombe coffee and freshly-made mini phyllo pie for $1.20 and two small soups, two side salads and two regular phyllo pies for $20.17.
