State of the Union Pub
I kind of scooped myself in the chat yesterday, but Capitol Hill favorite Red River Grill is reopening on June 27. For years, interns and staffers flocked to the Mass. Ave watering hole to sip red-white-and-blue frozen margaritas on the spacious front patio, or down dirt-cheap beers and Tex-Mex food at happy hour. Nebraska alumni made it their home during college football seasons.
But owner Matt Weiss and his partners shuttered the place last New Year's Eve, promising a fresh new look -- the bar was getting kind of tired -- and an updated concept. The new incarnation is called the Union Pub and Weiss says it will keep some of Red River's most popular features, like the happy hour specials, while upgrading others. Instead of just offering a selection of frozen margaritas, for example, the new menu will include about 15 different frozen drinks. A new draft system boasts 10 taps. Weiss says the interior has been reconfigured for "clean lines" and redecorated to get rid of the western motif.
As long as I can get a cold beer on the patio after work, I'll be happy.
