Here's hoping you aren't affected by the government shutdown. But if you are, some local businesses have deals to ease the pain.
To relax yourself after getting angry about Congress, Past Tense Yoga is offering $10 yoga classes throughout the shutdown.
Z-Burger, our local delicious burger chain, will be giving away free burgers (free!) from 11am-1pm and 5-7pm every day, if you show your government ID. For their sake I hope it doesn't go very long.
Lou's City Bar is offering all-day happy hour with food specials and cheap drinks that vary.
Acre 121 has a special happy hour til 8 pm, and folks with government IDs get a $10 deal for a burger, veggie burger or pulled pork BBQ sandwich with a select draft or bottled beer for $10. (They also note they have a brand new menu and new chef and general manager.)
Taylor Gourmet, the sandwich spot at 14th and T is offering 10%, career counseling and a cookie for federal workers if you buy a hoagie or salad.
Kangaroo Boxing Club has $3 screwdrivers from 12-5pm, and the first is free if you show your government ID.
And while not a special deal, it's still good: DC Reynolds has buy one-get one free.
