A DC bar is offering cheap shutdown themed drinks in honor of the Government shutdown that is set to occur at midnight.
The Hill reported: With just hours to go, bars and restaurants around Washington are getting in the "shutdown spirit," - if there is such a thing - offering specials to potentially furloughed government workers.
Lawmakers have until midnight to reach a deal on a spending bill before before the government shuts down for the first time since 2013.
Capitol Lounge, which is just steps from the Capitol, unveiled its lineup of $5 "shutdown cocktails" on Friday, complete with several tongue-in-cheek names poking fun at President Trump and lawmakers:
Carmine's, in downtown Washington, is offering what it's calling a "bittersweet beverage," in the form of a $12 "Hard Times Cocktail." The dejected-sounding drink is composed of Campari, bourbon, orange juice and thyme-infused simple syrup.
The Italian restaurant says its happy-hour bar and drink menu will be available all day, as long as the shutdown continues.
