Bracket Room, a new bar taking over Burapi Thai's old spot on Garfield and Clarendon Blvd, is set to open on Thursday September 5. The sports bar promises to be more "female friendly" than other similar venues, while offering 15 beers on tap and more shooters than I can count.
One of the three owners is Clarendon resident Chris Bukowski, who is easily recognized from his appearances on The Bachelorette and Bachelor Pad TV shows. Less than one week after his new bar's grand opening, the venue will host another large party celebrating Chris's birthday on Tuesday, September 10. His b-day bash will be thrown by Social DC PR, a public relations company comprised of Arlington locals that recently raised almost $5,000 for Make-A-Wish Foundation at their A-Town anniversary party.
