Organic Event: The Grand Opening of Sugarcane
When we posted out first piece on Sugarcane, the new organic bar at 1919 Washington, many of you had questions about what exactly an organic bar entails. Well, now is a perfect time for you to find out. Today from 6 to 9 p.m. the bar is hosting its grand opening. Though we can't assure you there won't be any Ed Hardy shirts or overly manscaped facial hair, we can tell you that Sugarcane is on the quieter side of Washington and the people we've seen there have been totally normal.
General Manager Bryan Johnson promises a good night with some free booze and free food. The drinks are delicious, made with fresh juices such as orange, lemon, lime, cranberry, watermelon and cucumber. The liquors are organic and really yummy. Try the Tru Vanilla Bean vodka or the bar's delicious take on a margarita, made with organic tequila, agave syrup, fresh juice and a splash of spring water. It hits you hard for about a quarter of the calories of a traditional marg. Plus you can ask the folks at the bar directly why it's important to drink organic and reduce electricity consumption.
