It’s 4 p.m. on weekday. I get a text from Michelle: Come to happy hour at Brisbi’s. I’ve heard of the place and live in the same neighborhood, but have never been.
Flashback to a few years ago when I was living in Virginia. My parents were visiting, so I took them to the National Mall. My then roommate, a lifelong VA resident, remarked that it was his first time seeing the monuments. First time! The monuments! I feel bad enough about not going to established restaurants like Commander’s Palace and Emeril’s.
It happens. You take for granted of what’s in your backyard. Such was the case with Brisbi’s. It’s not a national treasure like Lincoln Memorial but it does offer cold beer and a beautiful sunset.
Vibe: sunsetty, breezy, casual
Happy Hour: $1.75 domestics, $3 premium drafts/import bottles, $5 house wines
Food Favorites: food was gone by the time I arrived
