Time To Get Classy/ Prom Night

Ladies and gentlemen it's time to dress up, suit up, and set swag levels to one hundred thousand trillion. We are starting the night by going to the Red Derby on August 13th for their annual Derby Prom. Drinks are cheap, and there will be an area in front of the bar to take prom pictures. After that, we are going to be bar hopping to some of the cheapest, most hole in the wall dive bars that DC has to offer. More info on exactly which bars will be given later.

I'll be updating this meetup with more information as we get closer, I just wanted to make sure it was on everyone's radar.

 

UPDATE: I'm changing the event time to 8:30, it's last minute I know, sorry. If you are taking metro, be at the Columbia Heights metro exit at 8:30 and we'll walk the few blocks down to the bar. 

UPDATE: Here is my phone number, feel free to give me a call if you need more details about tonight. [masked]

GAME PLAN: Just a heads up, it's going to be a bit of an adventure. We're going to 4 dive bars around NW DC over the course of the night. We are going to start at Red Derby for the Prom at 8:30. After a bit, we are going to walk over to Wonderland Ballroom and drink there. Cheap drinks, cool atmosphere. Next we are going to head over to Adam's Morgan (aaaaaawwwwww yeeeeaaaaahhh) and go to Leaky Faucet. Leaky Faucet has pitchers of Rum and Coke for $10. After that we head over to the legendary Dan's Cafe, a bar where $13 gets you a pint of liquor, a bucket of ice, and a soda. They also have condiment squeeze bottles (clean of course) that they will fill with the alcohol of your choice. If you're not drunk by the end of the night, you fail

CLOTHING: The spirit of the night is classy, but if you want to go campy or just comfortable that's cool also! Not everyone is going to be dressed up, so you don't have to feel bad

    It's clear that everyone who attended was a winner. There's no doubt in that.

    It was good to see that Redditors can clean up nicely (and even look like a religious group apparently!) when we choose to. Great to see so many new faces as well!

    Hey, you don't have to apologize. Unexpected situations happens in life. That's sweet of you for being up for another blind date. I'm all for it. I'll exchange info with you when I get back home.

  • Sofia 'G' E.

    as your would-be blind date I apologize profusely. perhaps we can be blind at some future point

    August 13, 2011

  • Khiem H N.

    Darn, my blind date and friends can't make it, I must dance and drink in their names tonight!

    Sorry Ashley, I'm watching my calories. Just kidding, I'm pretty sure I'd blackout from the high intake of alcohol in a short period of time.

    Chugging pitchers of mixed drinks? I just don't know if I'm going to be able to handle how classy this night is shaping up to be.

    August 13, 2011

  • Ashley

    Anyone want to chug a pitcher of Rum and Coke with me at The Leaky Faucet? Pretty positive my record is under 5 minutes..

    ...There are board games at Red Derby. Also, as an fyi, Red Derby only takes cash, although they do have an ATM inside.

    Next thing you know, people will be talking about board games, then we'll REALLY hear from him.

    Don't let Rodney see you want to go to Applebee's. He hates that place with a passion

    I guess i have to go find a prom date because this looks pretty fun!

    omg I wish I was in town for this, this looks amazingly awesome.

    clearly the classiest you can get is wine in a can

    1 · August 4, 2011

  • Anish

    Beer from a wine glass just looks like white wine depending on the type, so no one will get it. Mixed drink from a two liter bottle is just efficient and practical.

  • Ashley

    What if it's a mixed drink from a two-liter bottle.. that's class, right?

    What if it's beer from a wine glass?

    Also, I didn't go to prom in high school (I was just, like, too cool for that shit, man), so I am ridiculously excited for this.

    Drinking wine out of a beer can has the classiness of both. It allows you to talk with your hands without spilling your wine. If you use soda cans, you can drink it during interventions. The classiness never ends!

    Kel, this is implying that beer is classy though. Everyone knows only wine from a glass is classy.

  • Kel A.

    Nothing says "Classy" like a bar without beers on draft. Well, nothing except Reddit, of course!

    We HAVE to go to Froggy Bottom. If I have to I will go by myself.
