Port Royal Export

You don’t have to travel to Honduras to have Port Royal Export! This pale lager is refreshing, especially after a bike ride by the water.

Italian Style Roast Pork Loin

This is a quick version of the Italian classic porchetta which encompasses a whole hog boned and wrapped together and roasted to create something magnificent. The quality of pork is of the utmost importance as it would be in Italy. We will then rub it down with aromatics and dump some delicious beer over it to marinate for about 6 hours prior to oven roasting it.

Bar Review: Lindy’s Red Lion

Mixed in amongst the townhouse facades near GW is an unassuming, narrow little bar/restaurant, up a short flight of stairs from street level, easily missed on the way up or down Pennsylvania Avenue.

Live from Bonnaroo

Bonnaroo is a lot to take in. All there is to experience can certainly take a toll on a person. Thankfully, there were plenty of food and beverage vendors scattered all over the venue. However, the best and most refreshing way to (legally) wind down and relax at Bonnaroo was in the festival’s unique Broo’ers Tent.

Bar Review: The 51st State Tavern

For a bar that’s been around less than six years, the 51st State Tavern feels well lived-in. Since 2004 it has become a local hangout far on the West side, drawing its share of regulars, GW students, and lost tourists. And what it lacks in distinctive character is balanced by its nonchalance and surprising selection and specials.

Bar Review: Tommy Joe’s

There’s a fair amount going on in Bethesda, and there are more than a few places to eat, drink, or watch your team play. But there might be no better spot to do all three than Tommy Joe’s.

History in the Making and Beer to Drink

There are no fans that are more adamant about supporting their team than soccer fans. When you consider what the game often represents it is understandable. The teams are so much more than just a collection of great players that people from a particular city support, but a collection of the best that the nation has to offer as representatives of the country.

Bar Review: Black Cat

The distinctive, dark, gritty atmosphere one expects to find in a rock club usually only comes with the purchase of a concert ticket. That can be achieved at the Black Cat, with two stages that are regularly occupied by local favorites and big names alike, and with good beer on tap to boot. But a very nice dive-y rock’n’roll bar is also on the premises, and can be entered without a cover charge. The atmosphere and beer can thus be enjoyed minus the live music.
