DRINKING: Fans of Pittsburgh on U Street
As the Oculus reported last week, DC9, the newish club/bar on Ninth Street Northwest near U Street, is currently asking its customers what canned beer they would like offered. Currently the real race is between Schlitz (25 percent) and Iron City (34 percent).
Schaefer, Keystone Light, Busch, Natural Light and Miller High Life register anywhere between 3 and 15 percent.
According to My Life Is Beer, Iron City, Pittsburgh favorite local macobrew, has a user rating of 8.18 out of 10. (But be aware that rating is for the bottle, not the can.)
Which beer will be the new shabby chic beer for the eastern end of the U Street corridor? Vote and control the bar's destiny.
Speaking of DC9 ... The establishment will be stop No. 2 on the Oculus' first ever 90-30 bus pub crawl. More details on the crosstown exploration journey (from Barracks Row to U Street to Glover Park to Georgetown, all via the 90 and 30 buses.) will be forthcoming, but if you're up for the challenge, stay tuned. The event is set for Saturday, July 24. The more the merrier.
