Final How I Met Your Mother party at Wilson Tavern

This is text Wilson Tavern is throwing a viewing party for the final episode of the How I Met Your Mother television series this Monday, March 31. The popular comedy series staring Neil Patrick Harris is winding down after 9 seasons on CBS, and the final episode will air on the Courthouse bar's screens at 8pm. Wilson Tavern will start celebrating the end of this long series at 7pm with trivia and drink specials.

Also coming to a close soon is Wilson Tavern's place in Arlington nightlife. The venue opened three years ago on Wilson Blvd replacing Kitty O'Shea's by the owners of The Might Pint in DC. They have hosted a multitude of fun, original and sometimes tongue-in-cheek parties, and their popular Fireball whisky shots have left many Arlingtonians questioning their life decisions the next morning. The building that Wilson Tavern resides in is scheduled for demolition and being replaced by a hotel, so their staff states they only have two more months of being open for business. Hopefully they will throw a large closing party then!
