If you want to have a drink while watching former FBI director James Comey testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, you’re in luck.
“Come on… you know you want to watch the drama unfold this Thursday,” Shaw’s Tavern, which will be serving $5 Stoli vodka and “FBI” sandwiches, wrote on Facebook. “Grab your friends, grab a drink and let’s COVFEFE!”
Responses on social media ranged from excitement to eye-rolling:
Only in DC would a restaurant/bar play the Comey Hearing live and feature themed food and drinks. If you haven't heard it's at Shaw's Tavern pic.twitter.com/iIJzxUYsKN
