TORTILLA COAST CELEBRATES 25 YEARS ON THE HILL
Join the Original Location for Four Days of Celebratory Events This June
Washington, DC (June 17, 2013)—Tortilla Coast Capitol Hill, a local Tex-Mex favorite and second home to politicos and residents of the Hill, located at First and D Street NE, is thrilled to announce its 25th Anniversary this week. The celebration will include four days of festivities from Thursday, June 20 through Sunday, June 23.
Not many places or people survive 25 years on the Hill. To mark the special occasion, the original Tortilla Coast has planned a variety of commemorative events for the entire community. Celebrations commence on Thursday, June 20 at 3:30pm with a Retro Happy Hour offering retro pricing on happy hour items. Enjoy drinks with some friendly competition—a Shiner’s Trivia Night with political and pop culture questions spanning the past 25 years and plenty of Shiner prizes!
Washingtonians won’t want to miss out on the main event – Guest Bartending Night, on Friday, June 21. Tortilla Coast has teamed up with the Capitol Hill Community Foundation,who has established a special fund to provide help as needed in the aftermath of the June 5 Frager’s Hardware fire. Neighbors concerned about the store’s employees and other businesses impacted are encouraged to come out and join local firefighters to make it a charitable evening dedicated to raising donations. From 7:30 p.m. until 9:00 p.m., the fine firemen from Engine 18 & Truck 7 who risk their lives to put out the flames, will shine behind the bar, making it a fun and memorable night for all. In addition, $1 from every dinner entrée sold that evening will be donated to the foundation.
The anniversary party will carry on throughout the weekend. Loyal fans will be excited to know that All You Can Eat Chicken Fajitas will return on Saturday, June 22 and that evening, Hill old-timers are invited to come back for Reunion Night. All those who have worked on the Hill can reminisce with old friends and colleagues and sing a little Karaoke. The festivities end with Tortilla Coast’s “Weekend Fun Bar” during Sunday brunch where guests can build their own Bloody Mary and Bloody Maria with dozens of mixes and toppings.
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!
