Street Booze: Hennessey on Girard Street

This is part of a new series called Street Booze, where I document the various bottles of booze found tossed around the neighborhood. I always see bottles everywhere, and it's kind of interesting. What kind of booze is it? Why here? Why not use a trash can? I plan on doing about one every week or two, so don't expect to see them all the time.

What: Small glass bottle Hennessey
Where: On Girard Street between 13th and 14th.

I've never had Hennessey, is it any good?


  1. This is the best new blog series I've seen in DC so far.

    As far as Hennessy, it's a classy drink for taking your date out to the local street corner.

    The owner of this bottle probably ditched it when he took his girl to the closest alley to get some action.

  2. I've never had Hennessy before, but this feature is awesome.

  3. I hope this continues every week. I love it. Hennessy is a bit ashy in flavor, but the flavor varies between grades. It's also the preferred libation of Kim Jong-Il, so, you know, he was probably getting crunk on your street I assume.

  4. Great series - I've termed them "Urban Floaters". Hennessy is pretty bad straight up, which is how this was probably consumed, although possibly en papillote.

  5. Thanks all.

    Danielle -- one can only hope!

  6. I hope to crap you pick up the bottles and throw them out after you take a picture.
