This Thursday is "Friends & Family Night" at Capitol Garage, the popular neighborhood restaurant and bar at the corner of 15th and K streets.
The idea is simple: bring a packaged toy from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.and enjoy complimentary appetizers. This is an easy win-win. Capitol Garage is always an entertaining place to visit. The menu is eclectic, many of the dishes are creative in concept and the cooking is quite good. And if it's your first visit, everything will make sense if you try partake of the $6.95 unlimited mimosas during weekend brunch.
Checking out the restaurant's website, I also noticed a very good deal for New Year's Eve: dinner for two, including a bottle of wine or champagne, for $49.95. Reservations for this one are encouraged.
