The St. Andrew's Society of Washington, DC is holding this month's Wee
Dram happy hour at the Flying Scotsman (downtown DC) on Thursday, August
5th, beginning at 6:30pm.
The Wee Dram is an informal monthly
gathering giving us all a chance to get together and enjoy some
libations and camaraderie.
* Members, prospective members, better halves, and friends are
* Kilts are always a delightful option for attire.
* There is no cost to attend.
* Pay for your own food and beverages as you go.
The Wee Dram is generally held on the first Thursday of every month
starting at 6:30 and running about 2-3 hours. We hope to have you join
us. Directions and other information below.
The Flying Scotsman is located immediately next to Capitol Hill just a
block from Constitution Avenue. The address is 233 Second Street NW. The
phone number for other specifics is 202-783-3848. It is an easy walk
from Union Station (Metro Red Line), and from Judiciary Square as well.
There is adequate parking in the area, if desired. This street looks
like an alley, and is not well marked. It is a couple of blocks closer
(up Constitution) to the Hill than the Canadian Embassy.
>From Union Station: simply take Louisiana Avenue to Constitution
Avenue, going right on Constitution towards the Smithsonian. Take a
quick right onto Second Street and the Flying Scotsman will appear on
your right after a few hundred feet. If you are not familiar with
Judiciary Square and the Department of Labor route, we would recommend
using Union Station, it is less convoluted.
The proprietors, Michael and Peter Muller, of Edinburgh, Scotland, are
members of the St. Andrew's Society of Washington DC. You will, no
doubt, enjoy their genuine hospitality as much as the tremendous
Scottish establishment they have created.
Kilted attire goes very well here, while business and casual attire will
be perfectly suitable as well. The non-smoking bar is on street level
when you enter, along with a restaurant where you can sit at proper
tables, and a smoking bar is located upstairs. There is plenty of
Scottish cuisine to feast upon, so bring your bibs, lads and lasses.
If you are away and getting this message feel free to pass it along to
those interested in the Washington Area Scottish Community. We wanted
you to be aware in case you are traveling in the area.
Aye, Dave McKenzie
