    Let's get YAPPY.

    May's RPCV/W Happy Hour isn't just for you, it's also for your favorite four-legged friend(s) 

    the brig public beergarden is located in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood of Capitol Hill in Washington, 5 blocks from Eastern Market metro on lower 8th Street (Barracks Row) near the Navy Yard and 8 blocks from Nationals/Navy Yard metro.

    Happy hour typically ends at 7:00pm, but they're extending it all night to allow ample time for our members to head home, collect their four-legged friends and not have to beat a clock to enjoy the specials. 

    Here's to the yappiest of yappy hours!
