Calling All Gladiators
Get the leak on a couple of local Scandal viewing parties!
The return of ABC’s hit drama “Scandal” airs this Thursday, February 27 at 10:00 p.m. EST. Where will you be to watch this highly anticipated premiere?! We at DC Life are still undecided about it. However, here are a couple of premium options
If you find yourself itching for a late night meal with dancing to follow, head over to The Park at Fourteenth. Doors open at 10 pm, just in time to watch opening credits. The Park is a popular spot in DC for local celebrities and natives alike, so make sure you’re ready for a full night of entertainment. You may just bump into a ballplayer or two.
Indeed, the most prestigious of locations on our list is the Mayflower Renaissance Hotel. Home to many inaugural parties in the past, the Mayflower is the ideal location to emulate that Scandalous lifestyle. The hotel has a “Secret Affairs” package and “Scandalous Thursdays” viewing parties at its restaurant Edgar Bar & Kitchen, for this occasion.
During “Scandalous Thursdays” at Edgar, guests and locals alike can watch the action heat up between Olivia Pope and President Fitz Grant III, while they cool down with specialty-themed cocktails. The party will begin every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. EST, leading up to the airing of the episodes at 10:00 p.m. EST. Edgar’s menu of “Scandal” concoctions includes, the Fitz Gin Fizz, a blend of gin, simple syrup, fresh lime and club soda; the B6-13, which fuses vodka, crème de cocoa, one shot of espresso and simple syrup; the Gladiator, a mixture of rum, vodka, gin, tequila, triple sec, lemon juice and a splash of cola. Guests can also order Ms. Pope, Olivia’s favorite meal of red wine and popcorn.
The Mayflower Renaissance Hotel is offering a “Secret Affairs” package for stays from Thursday through Sunday. This scandalous escape includes:
o Overnight accommodations
o Breakfast for two at Edgar Bar & Kitchen
o Entrance to “Scandal” viewing party at Edgar Bar & Kitchen
o Complimentary appetizer and cocktails for two at Edgar Bar & Kitchen
