Imma agree with sidestout that PP is more of a bar in my opinion than a restaurant. I'm also quite disappointed you'd spend money on pizza space when you could easily make that at home for a fraction of the cost.

Verdict: Hats allowed.

I don't make pizza nearly as good as Pizza Paradiso. So there's that.

And while I would say my wife makes pizza that is in the same league (though we don't have a brick oven at home), it's nice to not have to cook once in a while. Surely you understand!

Plus, the happy hour pricing actually makes some of the beer cheaper at PP than if you purchased it retail. So that helps!

I had the Korean BBQ Beef Brisket Bao at the Anthem.  It was highly tasty, overpriced, and not especially Korean.  If I were eating there, I'd definitely consider ordering it again.  That said, if I had the time, I'd find a local spot and eat before going in.

There is a restaurant/high-end whisky bar in Richmond with a posted, and enforced, not hats for gentlemen policy and the continual (every 2-3 week’s for 2+ years) social media outrage over it is a consistent source of comedy. Some of these bros get so infuriated about being asked to take their hat off.

This is how you should have handled the situation.

Baked Bear is coming to Pike and Rose.  They need to set up a kiosk at the Wharf.

[Baked Bear] is known for its original-recipe craft ice cream that is sandwiched between freshly baked cookies, brownies or doughnuts. Customers can mix and match their top and bottom. The sandwiches can also be rolled through toppings like Fruity Pebbles, Oreo crumbs, Nutella and Heath Bar bits.  The ice cream sandwiches are then hot pressed.

I have it on good authority that hutch has sent him a few personal emails with no response back thus far.

I heard from relaxer via email slightly after those dates as I an extra for the Anthem Soft opening

So for many years, our staff holiday party has been a potluck in January. I guess staff at some point decided that MLK Day was more worthy of celebration than the Christian, Jewish, and Muslim holidays that come in December. Whatever, MLK was a man who did great things, I won't argue. Let's sit around the office and eat each other's crappy food in January rather than going to a nice DC restaurant in December. Woohoo.

This year someone decided to put it to a vote. December vs. January, and potluck vs. restaurant.

Yay! December won overwhelmingly. But potluck also won overwhelmingly. WTF? DC is a pretty decent restaurant town, and who doesn't want to get out of the office for a few hours? Instead, we'll be crowding once again into our tiny seminar room, eating each other's food. I hope they do it on my telework day.

so I don't think it's about MLK (or you for that matter)
I've been at a number of firms that do the holiday party for the staff in Jan, because December is usually filled with tons of Client and Vendor parties as well as family commitments to parties
