The February the Ward 5 Happy Hour will host two events, a pre-Happy Hour wine tasting at the newly opened Wardman Wines, and a happy hour across the street at Brookland Pint. From an email:

Wardman Wines is offering our group its own wine tasting. About the wine tasting: For just $5 you will have the opportunity to taste up to 10 wines, split between the public tasting bar and a private tasting table in the back classroom set up just for us. In addition, participants would get a 10% discount on their purchases that evening. Can’t get there right at 5p? That’s okay! The tasting is set up to accommodate you whenever you arrive. After the tasting come on over to Brookland Pint for more libations, delicious eats and of course, the company of good friends and neighbors.

The first Ward 5 Community Happy Hour of 2016 will take place on Thursday, January 7th at the newly opened CRISP (formerly Costa Brava) in Bloomingdale. From an email:

Crisp features $5 Happy Hour from 5PM until 8PM with awesome food prices!

Zagat says that – Crisp is a casual eatery that fires up hot, Nashville inspired chicken, fried catfish as well as other sides and items.

As I understand it their Hot Chicken is to die for and a quick sell out on any given night – so arrive on time!
