Fun Tuesday Evening

If enjoying a great evening out while not breaking the bank is of interest, read on. Every Tuesday in Dupont, there is a great combination of a free wine happy hour at Vidalia, usually hosted by the restaurant's sommelier no less, and a late happy hour at David Greggory which is a couple of blocks away.

Vidalia's free tasting usually offers a selection of 3 or so wines, all according to a theme of some sort, such as grape variety or region, with complimentary little bites. David Greggory has happy hour until 10pm on Tuesdays and offers Smirnoff Vodka drinks and martinis for $5, micro brew drafts for $4.25, red sangria for $3.75, and selected wines by the glass for $4.75. The wine can be great too, I recently ordered the house red and it was Big Tattoo Red, a great blend from Chile. DG also offers a few tasty savory selections from the bar menu to pair with your drinks, such as smoked chicken empanadas, deviled eggs, or DG pizza (with applewood smoked bacon, mushrooms, onions, oven-dried tomatoes and spinach pesto), all for $5. Here's to Tuesdays.

Thanks for the tips! I'm always looking for new places to check out in the area. Are you going to be taking advantage of restaurant week this coming week? We're headed out to try Butterfield 9. Best of luck with the blog!
