930 Club

anyone got suggestions for good cheap(ish) food, beer and fun within a short stint from the 930 club?

  1. For close proximity, there's Duffy's on VT. It's within sight of the 9:30. They have typical pub grub stuff, but it's pretty good for burgers, wings, fried fish, and the like. Plus they usually have some beer specials. On U St., Stetson's has similar food and is worth a shot.

    1. Is there anywhere that serves good spicy grub nearby? I dont think I can face fried fried fried...I'll do a $8 cab ride and a $20 meal...thanks

        Many of the Ethiopian restaurants in the nearby U St/9th St areas should fit the bill. Most of the food is not super-spicy, but some of the dishes have some kick.

          The fish and chips is damn good there though, and they have baked things, and stew of course!

          Just hit me, since you're okay with a short cab ride, how about Thai Tanic or Stoney's?

        2. If you can get the search function to work, this was a recent post. I'm sorry that I can't remember any of the recommendations.

          1. 9:30 club has moved off F street into the old WUST music hall, right? If so, Pyramid (6th and Florida) is close and, from all accounts, excellent.

              Yes, 930 is long of F street and is at like 12th and V right now.

                9:30 is closer to 9th and V--address is 815 V Street NW (for at least ten years now).

                  Thats right- sorry was doing the address off the top of my head :)

                      Ha ha, I'm old too--how else would I know about it. ;)

              2. I like the Saloon on U Street for good beer. I have not tried the food, but would expect it to be at least servicable.

                  i would definitely not recommend the saloon for food. great bar, great beer selection, horrific, right-out-of-the-freezer grub.
