For John, BLUF: Not here. Nothing to see here; just move along.
This is a little late, the original post having been made on 2 October of this year, but for those of you interested in Happy Hour♠ in our Nation's Capitol, here is some information. The author, Mr Ryan Evans is the editor of the blog War on the Rocks. A theme of the blog is Realism.♥ Here is the lede and the paragraph with the links.

Congress’ ineptitudethe government shutdown, you probably need a drink. Thanks to a tireless and single-minded federal worker, you can peruse all of DC’s happy hour options right here in one spreadsheet. You can sort through it by day of the week, neighborhood, times, and deals.
Download it here or view it as a Google spreadsheet here. As a service to our readers, we will update this spreadsheet periodically and re-post it regularly. If you see anything missing, tell us in the comments section. Let’s crowdsource the **** out of this.
♥ Happy Hour is a ritual known in certain parts of this Nation, but not here in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, where it is against the law. The US military abolished Happy Hour in on base facilities in 1984. It is also known in some other parts of the world.
♠ "Realism teaches us how to think about the world, rather than what to think about it. It is a broad term that encompasses people of many opinions with a variety of party affiliations but all of whom believe in the centrality of fear, honor, and interest as drivers of inter-state affairs. Politics is power. À la Morgenthau, we understand power as “anything that establishes and maintains the power of man over man …. from physical violence to the most subtle psychological ties by which one mind controls another.” As such, while we focus on armed force, we do not dismiss ideas and social control as mechanisms for power."
