PRIDE PARADE PREGAME PARTY AT THE SALLY
The new restaurant and lounge at the renovated hotel The Fairfax at Embassy Row throws open its doors — and its newly unveiled outdoor terrace overlooking Massachusetts Avenue — on Saturday, June 8, beginning at 2:30 p.m. The occasion is the Capital Pride Parade, which kicks off one block away. Guests at The SALLY can enjoy drink specials — including pride-themed concoctions “Strawberry’s Field,” a mix of Wheatley Vodka, Licor 43, kiwi, and strawberry, and “Real Ladies Never Blush,” a fizzy blend of prosecco, limoncello, and pomegranate. Both cocktails will go for $9, while two craft beers will set you back $5 each: Fordham & Dominion Brewing’s Cherry Blossom Lager or Sapporo Nippon Lager. Seasonal menu items from executive chef Ricardo Planas’s menu will also be available, as will pride party favors and festive music. 2100 Massachusetts Ave. NW.
