It’s been a year since the historic Women’s March (but hasn’t it felt like a lifetime?), so the pussyhats are coming back.
On Saturday, January 20, an anniversary rally will begin at 11 a.m. at the reflecting pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial. To ensure that marchers are well fed and fully hydrated, several D.C. restaurants are offering specials in solidarity. (Unless otherwise specified, the specials are only available on January 20).
The beyond-beloved karaage fried chicken ($24) is coming back for one night only! The Petworth hot spot will open for dinner on Sunday, January 21 from 5-10 p.m. on a first come, first serve basis with no reservations. All profits will be donated to CASS (Collective Action for Safe Spaces).
Fuel up for the march with the BASIC Bitches Stick Together Special from 8-10 a.m. Choose a bagel breakfast sandwich (egg and cheese; bacon, egg, and cheese; sausage, egg, and cheese) and either coffee or tea ($5).
Diners receive 15 percent off their entire purchase from 7-10 a.m. If you don’t buy an everything croissant and freshly fried beignets dusted with a snowstorm of confectioners sugar, you’re missing out.
Last year’s popular We Can Do It cocktail ($14) forged from Borough bourbon, Caffo Mezzodi L'Aperitivo, orange oleo-saccharum, and lime juice returns from January 18-21. Two dollars from every drink sold will be donated to N Street Village.
Score free coffee until the march begins at 11 a.m. If that’s not strong enough, half-off Bloody Marys will be available until 2 p.m.
