Bars and Restaurants Come To the Rescue During the Government Shutdown

Beverage News

Paul Dellevigne

All across America government workers are furloughed, military commissaries are running out of food and budgets are tight. The people’s champions in this situation aren’t the politicians, but bar and restaurant owners who are welcoming those of us who could use a break.

Up in Philadelphia the birthplace of our ailing government, Red Owl Tavern is offering a couple of $6.00 cocktails and $4.00 craft beers. The aptly chosen libations are The Scofflaw and The Liberty, Yards Thomas Jefferson Tavern Ale, along with 21st Amendment Brew Free or Die IPA.

Down here in the D.C. Metro Area Granville’s Moore is offering $1.00 Stella’s. Hotspot Range, Brian Voltaggio is offering a free “Government Cheese” pizza to Federal employees, members of Congress are out of luck. My personal favorite deal belongs to Kramer Books & Afterwards Cafe who is offering happy hour all day, except to members of Congress who will pay double.

There are furloughed government workers who could use a break all over the country. Do you know of a bar or restaurant deal for them in your city? If so, please share the info in the comments section.
