The Hawk 'n' Dove is the oldest restaurant on the Hill as well as home to great deals for interns. Monday through Friday they offer half priced burgers and chicken sandwiches at lunch if you have your intern ID. Happy Hour Monday-Friday is from 4-7pm and has $2.50 rail drinks and bottled beer, plus $2 pints on Thursday and Friday. The upstairs dance floor with a DJ is open Thursday-Saturday nights and also has great drink deals.
This blog is dedicated to those DC residents who eagerly await (or completely dread) DC Summer Intern Season. Essential to the function of most offices in DC, interns are willing to complete tasks that are often considered undesirable.
For many interns, this blog will not apply. For those interns to whom it does apply, we hope that you use these anecdotes to change your behavior and eventually change the stigma attached to DC interns.
PLEASE NOTE: While many offices are understandably concerned about anonymity, please be assured that we will never post identifying information (including, but not limited to, place of work or residence, name, or congressional office).
We welcome you to submit any and all absurd intern stories you are bound to experience this summer.
TWITTER EXCEPTION: We assume you give us permission to re-tweet any submissions you send our way via your public Twitter account.
To the interns: Please use this blog as a learning tool. Godspeed and best of luck this summer!
