Slate Wine Bar & Bistro (2404 Wisconsin Ave.) will help Glover Parkers prepare for the July 4 holiday by offering free mussels and drink specials on July 1, 2, and 3. The event, called the Slate Summer Festival, is intended as a neighborhood get-together, says event coordinator Ashley Lovelace. “We wanted to catch people before they go away for the long weekend,” she adds.
House wines will cost $5 per glass and select beers will cost $3 during the festival, which lasts from 5 to 8 p.m. on each of the three nights. Along with the free mussels, a selection of other appetizers will be available at prices of $4 to $9.
Interested guests can RSVP on Facebook or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
And as a reminder, every Wednesday is “Wine Wednesday” at Slate. With any wine that is sold by the glass at the restaurant, you can buy two full bottles for the price of one on Wednesdays.
