What to do on July 4th

If you survived the madness that was the All American Bar Crawl this past weekend, you can finish the patriotic parting you started with many events this week. Here are a few local events:

July 3rd DC bar hop
As soon as you leave work on Wednesday you can catch this bar tour from 5-10pm to start Independence Day early. The Midtown Liberty Tour hits 15 DC bars and is $14 online with my promo code CNights and then you start the bar hopping at Mackey's or The Front Page.

July 3rd Clarendon Grill party
High energy beats will be filling up the Grill thanks to DJ 2 Nutz. Here's a video from March of him spinning at the Grill.

July 4th Mad Rose no cover party
My Clarendon venue of choice to celebrate before the fireworks is Mad Rose who is hosting their Star Spangled Independence Day Party. It's free, DJ Biks will be spinning and there are many drink specials including $4 'Merica Shots. Thanks to Social DC PR for organizing this party that goes from noon to 8pm.

Iwo Jima in Rosslyn is usually the best bet for viewing the big bangs over the Washington monument. If you have access to a local rooftop like 1021's pool deck you can continue the drinking during the fireworks.
