Happy Hour: Farewell Old Friend

Today’s Happy Hour post isn’t about a cocktail; it’s about a bar.  The Town & Country Lounge, at the Mayflower Hotel, is the epitome of the Washington, D.C. power bar.  The history is storied, the drinks are strong and the bartenders know all, but say nothing.

Sadly, on January 15, Town & Country will close its doors and my favorite local bartender, Sam, will be moving on.  To say bon voyage to the capital’s best strongest martini, there is only one dress that I want to wear.

Catherine Malandrino One-Shoulder Dress (ShopBop, $495)

Pour me another, Sam.

    That is too, too sad. I've enjoyed many fabulous nights of cocktails with girlfriends there, as well as a very awkward first date (awkward despite a bottle of Dom being involved), and my first and only “unnamed source” interview was conducted there.

    I will be sure to visit before the doors close!
