If you haven't heard about the Christmas Bar then READ THIS. It's the coolest thing ever. Last year, Fridays were "Naughty Santa" Night.
I got in line early last year and it took almost 2 hours to get in! It's worth it though, they limit the number of people in the bar and you have lots of room. The decorations are gorgeous and the drinks are delicious!
I plan on getting in line at 2pm this year - you do NOT have to be there at 2pm (although I love company). I'll take a few hours off work that day. A Santa comes out and hands out candy canes every 30 minutes plus you get to complain to your neighbors about the line and gush about how incredible you heard the bar is!
This event is a MUST for anyone in DC!
