Sequester Yourself at Tunnicliff’s

Posted February 27, 2013 at 6:50pm

While everyone else is sweating the anticipated horrors of swollen airport security lines, paycheck-depleting furloughs and every other conceivable service disruption known to man, Tunnicliff’s Tavern is offering a silver lining in the sequester saga: extended happy hour.

The Eastern Market mainstay (222 Seventh St. SE) is celebrating the arrival of the long-awaited, across-the-board budget cuts by extending their standard drink specials — $2 drafts of Miller and Yuengling typically available from 4 to 7 p.m. — two hours earlier for fidgety feds.

The only prerequisite for claiming the pro-rated pours is to flash a “valid government ID.”

“Sequestration bad … Drinking Good … Tunnicliffs Tavern is for the people!” Team Tunnicliff’s Facebook post for “Sequestration Friday” proclaims.

So glad somebody is having fun with this legislative morass.
