This afternoon, a couple hundred young professional types milled around the sidewalk in front of Kitchen (2404 Wisconsin) and Gin & Tonic (2408 Wisconsin), blocking the flow of pedestrian traffic. (Click photo to enlarge.) The group was waiting to board two tour buses for Swine on the Vine, an annual pig roast in Woodford, Virginia sponsored by the nonprofit Capital Club.
Why plan to pick up hundreds of passengers along a narrow, busy sidewalk? Perhaps because of the proximity of Gin & Tonic, whose $6-a-pitcher Saturday beer special is mentioned in the event’s publicity material—and whose co-owner, Fritz Brogan, serves on the board of the Capital Club.
