Ah, scotch. If “Anchorman” and its coming-soon sequel “Anchorman 2″ have done anything, it’s bring the wonders of what Ron Burgundy referred to as scotchy scotch scotch to light.
Whiskey-centric establishment Jack Rose Dining Saloon will be hosting its own Scotchy Scotch Scotch party Monday night “in honor of ‘Anchorman 2′s looming Christmas Day release, according to the bar. “If ‘Anchorman”s Ron Burgundy lived in Washington, DC, Jack Rose Dining Saloon would be his favorite watering hole.”
I smell sequel! Along with peat moss and heatherbrae, and other scotchy scotch scotch things.
Folks are encouraged to come in costume — considering the ’70s and ’80s are so big now, you’ve probably already got something fitting in your vintage-stocked closet. Members of the Channel 4 news team get $2 off cocktails. No cover. Includes a screening of “Anchorman” in the glass-enclosed upstairs bar. From 8 to 11 p.m. at 2007 18th St. NW.
Roll Call After Dark is about what Washington does when it's not at work.
The District of Columbia is a cultural capital where you can you get your kicks from movies projected on the National Mall, lectures on vermouth or Russian avant-garde art. There's always something to do.
