Artini Feature Night

What: Preview Smith Commons’ Artini entry before the March 31 event
Where: Smith Commons (1245 H St. NE)
When: 6:30–8:30 PM, Thursday, March 22
Price: PAYG

Though it might be hard to top the Guava McGuavington for the title of Smith’s Most Delicious Cocktail, tonight Phil Peters will debut the H Street bar’s official Artini entry. In this Corcoran-sponsored cocktail fundraiser, 12 area mixologists compete with libations inspired by famous works housed in the gallery. Bet you never thought your happy hour habit would make you a patron of the arts, but there’s a first for everything; 20% of proceeds benefit ArtReach.

Gin Cherry Blossom Cocktail at J&G Steakhouse

What: A libation inspired by D.C.’s famous flower
Where: J&G Steakhouse (515 15th St. NW)
When: Friday, March 22 (through April 27)
Price: PAYG

A stroll down the national mall is a nice way to admire this year’s cherry blossoms--but a drink in their honor is even better. Make a pit stop at the W Hotel, where the Gin Cherry Blossom Cocktail at J&G Steakhouse will give you a much-needed break from the tourist-laden streets. Made with Hendrick's gin, cherry yuzu, soda and Thai basil leaves, this drink may just inspire a new appreciation for the district’s favorite festival. Also check out our roundup of cherry blossom-inspired drinks around town.
