Viewing parties are so much fun! It's just you, your friends, some drinks and typically like a football game or an award show...not a political hearing. However, bars in DC are taking Thursday's testimony by former FBI Director James Comey to a whole new level with viewing parties and all kinds of specials. Bars that typically aren't open until the evening are serving up breakfast as the nation watches it all unfold. Some even got creative with their menus...'Covfefe Cocktail' anyone?
COMEY HEARING VIEWING PARTY 🚨 Thursday morning, grab a breakfast sando at our D Street location then snag a seat at @thepartisandc bar to watch it all go down. They’ll be opening early at 10am with their TVs tuned into the hearing and sound on full blast. Of course, booze will be involved – they’re offering The Last Word and Drop The Bomb cocktails at $6 each.
The Partisan will be featuring special cocktails all day including 'The Last Word' and 'Drop the Bomb.'
Duffy's will be broadcasting the event from their patio plus the 15 flat screens inside. They are offering free wi-fi so people can try and get some work done. They are even featuring a drink special called the 'covfefe cocktail' which know one knows what's exactly in it.

The Capitol Lounge on the famous Pennsylvania Avenue typically doesn't open until 4 pm, but they are waking up bright and early for the hearing.
