New Year's at CommonWealth

Saw this on the Columbia Heights listserve, it's the first New Year's party I've heard of so far. CommonWealth is having a three course dinner for $45 per person, not including tax and tip, from 5 to 9 pm.
Afterwards, come in costume for a night of dancing and revelry at our 2nd annual Vicars & Tarts fancy dress party! Prize for the best costume. Pub menu available and don't miss the champagne toast at midnight.
They'll also be open New Year's Day for brunch.

CommonWealth is at 1400 Irving St NW, around the corner from Five Guys.

  2. Has anyone heard about any other events going on in the area??

  3. Their food is pretty piss-poor, however they do have Pappy Van Winkle bourbon, so they get points for that. Still, doesn't make up for the horrific food, the abhorrent service and generally, all the douches that go in there.
