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
